Episode 1: Thunder and Lightning

First broadcast: on CBeebiesLatest broadcast: on CBeebies HD

The ZingZillas wake up and ask Todd for an idea for the day's song. Todd uses his ideas machine, but it breaks down. Instead of an idea, it starts to make rumbling and crashing sounds. Drum thinks it sounds like thunder and lightning. The ZingZillas think this is a brilliant idea for the song.

In the glade, Panzee and Zak see Colin Currie, a percussionist, playing the timpani and the thunder sheet. These will be great instruments for the thunder-and-lightning song.

The ZingZillas gather together in the clubhouse to rehearse their new song. Just at the crashiest, bashiest moment, Drum breaks her cymbal. Now she can't make any crashy-bashy noises in the Big Zing! Zak decides that they need a banana break. Zak brings in a tray of bananas, which Drum accidently knocks over. The tray makes a crashy-bashy noise on the floor and Drum realises that it's the perfect thing to replace her broken cymbal. The ZingZillas are ready to play! Show less
