More In The Night Garden In May
"Makka Pakka, Akka wakka, Mikka makka moo!" This May, pre-schoolers and their parents can enjoy another magical trip into the garden with Makka Pakka with the release of Hello Makka Pakka!, the fourth DVD from the landmark children’s series In the Night Garden.
Hello Makka Pakka! includes five episodes featuring our man, the most independent character in the programme and who is friends with all the other toys in the Garden. He lives in his own tidy little cave with all his special things and likes nothing more than collecting and washing little stones. He also enjoys washing and drying the faces of the other toys with his lovely big sponge, bar of purple soap and special dryer, the Uff-Uff, All of which he wheels around the Garden on his Og-pog together with his trumpet, which he uses to announce his arrival to the other toys in the Garden.
The five episodes are:
Makka Pakka's Stone Concert: Makka Pakka discovers he can make musical notes by tapping different stones. He makes up a tune. Everyone hears it and comes to listen to Makka Pakka’s stone concert.
Runaway Og-pog: Makka Pakka is busy cleaning stones in the garden when his Og-pog runs away by itself. Makka Pakka and everyone in the garden give chase, but only the clever Pontipine children know how to stop it. Then Makka Pakka has his Og-pog back safe and sound.
Makka Pakka's Present: Makka Pakka makes a pile of six stones. One by one he gives everyone in the garden a stone for a present. He is left with one...a special stone for Makka Pakka.
Makka Pakka Gets Lost: Makka Pakka sets off through the garden looking for stones to wash and tidy. He is so busy he loses his way...oh dear, which way is home? No need to worry - because here comes the Pinky Ponk. Makka Pakka follows the Pinky Ponk all the way home. Everybody joins in the dance at the gazebo.
Washing the Haahoos: The smallest Pontipines and the biggest Haahoos are all clean when Makka Pakka washes their faces. However, the Tombliboos are especially clean, because they also have great fun cleaning their teeth.
Hello Makka Pakka! will be released on May 19th 2008 from BBC Worldwide, priced at £12.99.
