Having seen opera singer Sarah Connolly in the glade, the ZingZillas decide that the Big Zing will be a story about a princess who is rescued from a tower by a prince. They set about creating the Big Zing Opera. Zak will be the story teller and Sarah will be the princess but they need someone else with an operatic voice to play the prince.

Granite isn't very impressed by Gravel's singing and so they decide to count coconuts instead. The coconut clock is counting and the ZingZillas don't have much time to find their prince. Suddenly they hear wonderful operatic singing coming from Todd's cave - it's Todd! Todd is having a bath having been covered in mud while using his latest potato-picking invention but when asked he is very excited about being the prince in the Big Zing Opera.

However when they all rehearse Todd's voice sounds more like a parrot. The ZingZillas try to help him find his operatic voice but it's no good, he sounds dreadful. More coconuts are dropping and they still don't have a prince for the Big Zing Opera' It's a disaster! Following another spot of potato digging Todd is in the bath again. He likes to sing while he's in the bath! Show less
