Song Video


Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate;
The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late".
The second one said, "There are witches in the air".
The third one said, "But I don't care".
The fourth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
The fifth one said, "Let's run and run and run".
"Wooooooo" went the wind,
And out went the lights.
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO's finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around - Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Five little pumpkins
Sitting on a gate
The first one said,
Oh, my, it's getting late
The second one said,
There are witches in the air!
The third one said,
But we don't care!
The fourth one said,
Let's run and run and run!
The fifth one said,
I'm ready for some fun!
OOOOOOOH, went the wind
And OUT went the light (clap on out)
And the five little pumpkins
Rolled out of sight.
