  • On top of a house 0.1 %
  • Under a sock 0.1 %
  • Behind an elephant-shaped hedge 0.6 %

2. Class Act!

Bananaman has become a substitute teacher at Bash Street Kids! He’s going to pass on all his wisdom onto the students – because he is so full of wisdom! Or hot air... those always get mixed up!

5. Soak Joke!

Class 2B is planning the biggest prank on Teacher this week! A reworking of the classic ‘bucket of water on the door’ trick! But will they manage to pull it off? With ‘Erbert on lookout, they’re sure to succeed... perhaps?!

How would your teacher react to a watery prank?


  • They'd laugh their shoes off 0.2 %
  • Nah 0.2 %
  • They'd see the funny side... eventually 0.2 %
  • Not even worth thinking about 0.4 %
