Spuds Cork Trees
S12 E8 10M TV-Y
An early morning start for the sunflower valley team, as they are moving logs in preparation for a safety fence around Mr Sabatini's windmill. Wendy's off to the sunflower oil factory to help Marjorie with a big delivery. Farmer Pickles and Scrufty arrive looking exhausted; he explains that Spud is so noisy in his sleep that he keeps everyone else awake. Some changes are going to have to be made. Spud is extremely upset when he learns that Farmer Pickles wants him to leave Scarecrow cottage because he is too loud. Inspired by seeing some rabbits bounding silently into a hedgerow, he vows to find a way to be quiet. Spud finds a scrap of cork tree on the ground and makes some espadrilles. Now he creeps silently to the riverbank. He is so quiet, that he startles Bob and Lofty. Bob drops the life belt and Lofty backs over it snapping it in two. Spud is now 'silent spud'. He has caused a mistake, but has also made a useful discovery. The cork trees give Bob an idea.
