1. A wheely great ride!

Minnie and Dad are on their bikes! It’s cycle to work/school day, and Minnie has made sure that Dad is taking part! But they have to make it through some of the most treacherous areas of Beanotown – including getting past Cruncher Kerr’s territory! 

What's the most important thing to remember when riding a bike?


  • A crash helmet 0.7 %
  • A sandwich 0 %
  • A backpack pull of snacks 0.2 %
  • A book on how to do blam tricks 0.1 %

2. Tree’s company!

Dennis and Dad are on a mission – to deliver their Christmas tree to the dump! It’s a mission impossible as they have to get past the bin men at the rubbish dump – and they have incredibly keen eyes for a Christmas tree! 

What's the best way to dispose of a Christmas tree?


  • Take it to the council tip 0.4 %
  • Blast it into space 0.1 %

  • Just leave it in the garden and let nature deal with it 0.3 %

3. Seeing double... triple... quadruple!  

Rubi’s been replicating! She’s created a food replicator – and Pie Face is only too happy to help her test it out... especially with pies! How many pies do you think Pie Face can eat? Maybe we’ll find out this week?

4. In-tents foraging!

The Bash Street Kids are still at Camp Grizzly – today they’re going foraging for food. They just wish they could have had breakfast first! And they better make sure that they don’t get lost in the woods!

  • A fry up 0.3 %
  • Some beans 0.1 %
  • A cereal bar – no mess! 0.3 %

5. It’s a sign! 

General Blight has a new invention – a sign makes anything written on it comes true! But he keeps using it to control the weather – and the Weatherman is angry! Bananaman will soon have two villains fighting on his hands! 

What's your favourite type of weather?


  • Blazing sunshine 0.3 %
  • A snowstorm 0.2 %
  • Sideways rain 0.1 %
  • Just a pleasant day without getting rained on, really 0.4 %
