Episode 4: Auntie Dot's Dash

First broadcast: on CBeebiesLatest broadcast: on CBeebies

Todd's Auntie Dot is coming to visit and watch the Big Zing. The ZingZillas are very excited and they decide to rehearse a special welcome song for Auntie Dot. However, Todd gets a phone call from Auntie Dot to say she is stuck in the jungle and will not make it to the Big Zing.

Todd is worried. He knows that the ZingZillas will be very disappointed by the news. He decides to disguise himself as Auntie Dot, if he pretends to be her, the ZingZillas will not be disappointed. Outside, dressed as Auntie, he meets Tang. Tang wants Auntie to say hello to Todd. 'Auntie' tells Tang Todd is on the beach. After changing back into Todd, Todd races off to the beach where Tang takes him to meet Auntie! However they hear bagpipes and Tang goes to the glade to listen to the music.

The ZingZillas agree that bagpipes are perfect for their welcome Auntie Dot song. However, they cannot practice while Dot is downstairs so Zak persuades 'Auntie' to visit the Moaning Stones. The Stones tell 'Auntie' that everybody will be at the Big Zing and Todd realises that he cannot be Auntie Dot and Todd at the same time. He confesses to the disappointed ZingZillas.

Then, at the last minute Auntie Dot appears on a banana car, driven by the Beach Byrds who found her in the jungle. Now Auntie Dot will get to see the Big Zing. The ZingZillas play the Big Zing with Martin McKay on bagpipes. Auntie Dot thoroughly enjoys the show. Todd is very relieved! Show less
