Episode 1: Mr Mentor's Spangly Jangly Dangle Dish

First broadcast: on CBeebiesLatest broadcast: on CBeebies HD

Mr Mentor is delighted with his new invention, a spangly jangly dangle dish, although he has no idea what it's for. But a mother bonglebird has an idea! While Mr Mentor is out at a meeting of the Most Remarkabubble Inventors in the Universe, she lays her eggs in the dish.

When Mr Mentor returns, he waves off the mother bird, not knowing about the eggs. When he discovers his mistake, he is mortified and phones Uncle CJ, asking for his help. Grandpa wants to help too so he shrinks and flies to the lighthouse. He lands Mrs Ostrich in the dish so that she can hatch the eggs.

Meanwhile, the mother bonglebird has been found in the meadow. Mr Mentor rushes back to the lighthouse. The baby bonglebirds have hatched and now they think Mr Mentor is their mother! He goes off to find them some worms. Grandpa steps in, gives them a flying lesson with Mrs Ostrich and returns the babies to their real mother in the meadow. Show less
