There was a time when Woodpecker didn't peck. All the birds had their very own sound but Woodpecker didn't make a sound at all. Then one very dark night in Tinga Tinga the Moon and the Stars disappear! The animals summon the birds to tell Lion but Woodpecker can't pass the message on! Distraught Woodpecker flies up to the skies but where are the stars? And where is the Moon? In desperation Woodpecker pecks at the dark sky and a star comes back then another then another! Everyone is delighted no beast more than Woodpecker who now has her very own special sound - pecking.
You see there was a time when Flamingo stood on both legs. One morning Flamingo and her flock landed at the Water Hole when all the crabs were busy performing their underwater dance. Needless to say all these legs where in their way! Tortoise came up with the plan that if all Crabs each nipped a flamingo leg there will be room to share the waterhole. So from then on Flamingo stood on one legs and Crabs were able to perform their dance in the watering hole.
There was a time when Zebra was skinny and white all over. Eagle discovered the Great Cave. All were interested except for Zebra who was happy munching and munching on his grass getting fatter and fatter. Tortoise thought that a new black coat might help Zebra hide better in the savannah so Zebra tried it on but the coat was too tight and it ripped. Zebra has been stripy from then on.
You see there was a time when Lion had lost his roar. Crocodile was snapping at all the animals in Tinga Tinga and ruling over the Waterhole. Lion could do nothing about it as he had lost his roar. Then one day Flea told Lion that if Lion dares to enter the Great Cave of Tinga Tinga maybe he will find his roar. Lion plucked up his courage and confronted the Great Cave. He roared with all his might. An even bigger roar came back but Lion stood strong. He roared again and an even bigger roar came back. Lion's very own Echo! He found his roar! From that day on Lion has always roared with pride showing any beast who's the real King of Tinga Tinga.
