Episode 15: Zak's Rubbish Day

First broadcast: on CBeebiesLatest broadcast: on CBeebies

It's Tidy Island Day and Tang asks Zak to write the words for a tidy song. Zak is really struggling and each time he writes a word on a piece of paper, he just scrunches it up and throws it over his shoulder.

Tang is very unimpressed by the mess in the clubhouse and, when he follows Tang down to Todd's garden, Zak discovers that Tang is the judge and whoever can keep the island the tidiest for the whole day wins a Squeaky Clean badge. Both Zak and Todd would like to win the badge and Zak rushes off to have a good tidy up. Having picked all the rubbish up, Zak throws it over the balcony, where it lands all over Todd's garden.

Tang is now very unimpressed with the tidiness of Todd's garden. Zak thinks a new sound for the Big Zing will help him come up with some words so DJ takes them to listen to Julian Bliss playing clarinet in the glade. Meanwhile, Todd has realized that the rubbish in his garden belongs to Zak and returns it to the clubhouse.

Unfortunately Drum accidentally throws her banana in the bin and in trying to find it, spills all the litter back over the clubhouse floor. When Zak and Tang arrive back, Judge Tang is very unimpressed. Zak and Drum quickly tidy all the rubbish up and Drum throws it back over the balcony and back into Todd's garden - just in time for Todd and Tang to arrive back. Tang is again very unimpressed with Todd's untidy garden.

The clubhouse is tidy but Zak still hasn't come up with any words for the Big Zing. As he explains that he wrote one word on each piece of paper, he realizes that he may have just stumbled on the answer. He rushes back down to Todd's garden to look for his words, in time for the Big Zing. Show less
