Episode 20: Why Mosquito Buzzes

First broadcast: on BBC Two ScotlandLatest broadcast: on CBeebies HD

Tinga Tinga Tales tells a modern, young audience why animals are as they are. One day Mosquito tells the monkeys that the sun looks very low in the sky. The monkeys worry that the sun will not rise again, and Mosquito spreads the rumour through Tinga Tinga and starts a panic. When the sun rises again, the animals decide to tie a grass around Mosquito's tail. From that day on Mosquito buzzes and everyone can swat her away rather than listen to her gossipy tales. Show less
