In the show these animals are puppets who will be moved by two actors called puppeteers.
The puppeteers will also speak for the puppets.
Percy the Park Keeper is outside his hut. He sings a song to a robin.
Percy tidies up the park.
Percy eats his sandwiches. He shares them with the robin. It starts to snow. Percy is cold so goes inside his hut.
The set transforms. We can now see inside Percy's hut. Percy gets ready for bed.
A squirrel arrives at the door. It's very cold outside in the snow and the squirrel would like somewhere warm to stay.
Percy invites the squirrel in and lets him sleep in his bed with him.
There is another knock at the door. There are two rabbits outside the door who are cold and would like to sleep in Percy's hut too. Percy invites them in.
There is another knock at the door. This time it is a fox. The fox is cold and would like to sleep in Percy's hut too. Percy invites the Fox in. They all sing a song.

There is more knocking at the door. Two ducks would like to join Percy and the other animals and sleep in the hut. Percy lets them in.
There is more knocking at the door. It's hedgehog who would like somewhere warm to sleep for the night. Hedgehog jumps into bed too.
This time there are some small knocks at the door. It's the mice who would like to come in out of the cold. They see all the other animals and are about to leave because they think there is not enough room. Percy says they can stay too.
