1. Dennis' Grime Wave

Dennis has been told to clean his room! What secrets could be found hidden within that? The lost library of Alexandria, the entire continent of Atlantis – it’s that messy! This is too big a job for just one boy and his dog!

What's the worst thing you've ever found in your messy room?


  • A year old banana skin 0.2 %
  • Beans 0.1 %
  • Mouse droppings 0.1 %
  • My siblings! 0.5 %

2. Rodger dodges exercise!

Roger’s Mum is getting everyone to be more active – and that means a lovely walk through Beanotown Woods! But Roger will do anything to avoid doing exercise... even if that means doing exercise!

What's the worst kind of exercise?


  • Swimming with sharks 0.3 %
  • Cactus jumping 0.2 %
  • Dynamite football 0.3 %
  • Jogging in a tiger's cage 0.3 %

3. Minnie's standing up for herself!

This week, Minnie is a stand-up comic in Bash Street’s talent show! That’s a pretty tough gig – especially with Mr Throbb as a judge! But when things don’t go her way, it’s up to her best friend Francis to help her out!

  • Pineapple juggling 0.1 %
  • Freestyle science-themed rapping 0.2 %
  • Animal noise impressions 0.3 %

4. Bash Street Dragon's Den!

The Bash Street Kids are testing out toys this week! They’ll decide what’s trendy and what’s not, and they’re not afraid to tell it how it is! It’s all a little ‘Dragons’ Den’, and Class 2B are the dragons!

What would you take to Dragon's Den?


  • Homework machine 0.2 %
  • Rocket powered skateboard 0.2 %
  • Ice cream fountain 0.3 %
  • Dog to human translation machine 0.3 %

5. Bananaman gets arty

Bananaman has been learning to draw. And the best artists take inspiration from the world around them – so when General Blight attacks Beanotown (again), it’s the perfect inspiration!

What's the best kind of art?


  • Paintings 0.2 %
  • Sculpture 0.1 %
  • Cartoons 0.5 %
  • Sticking a sign on a random pile of stuff and saying it's art 0.2 %
