Every episode opens as we zoom into the Jingly Jangly Jungle as Lorraine Kelly, narrator, talks about what's happening there that day. All the stories are strong, simple and linear with lots of wordplay. The stories are easy to follow and easy to retell. Rhythm, rhyme, and repetition play an important role in all episodes linking vocabulary to real life experiences and actions.

The stories always feature explicit pro social messages:

co-operation, joint problem-solving and appropriate behaviour, but above all, there's lots of jingly jangly jungle fun!

'It's a peaceful morning in the Jingly Jangly Jungle.
'Everyone's taking it easy.'
'Well, almost everyone.
'What's the big rush, Raa Raa?'
Huffty asked me to help clean his train.
I nearly forgot my sponge.
'Ooh! That sounds like fun.'
It will be!
Splishy-sploshy-splashy fun,
get ready, Huffty, here I come!
Come on!
Ha-ha-ha! Ooo-ooo-ooo!
Hey, Raa Raa! Fancy a bounce on the drumpolines?
It's so much fun!
Drumpolines? I love drumpolines!
  - 'Um, Raa Raa?'
- Yes?
'Weren't you going to help Huffty wash his train?'
Yes, but I'll have a bounce first, then I'll go.
Boingy-bouncy-boingy fun,
watch out, Ooo Ooo, here I come!
  - Ha-ha-ha!
- W-Wahey!
  - Whoo-hoo!
- Yippee!
This is fun! Whoo-hoo!
What's that in your hands, Raa Raa?
It's my sponge. Oops!
I've got to go, Ooo Ooo. Bye.
Bye. Whoo-hoo-hoo! Ha-ha-ha!
BREATHLESS: Hello, Huffty. Hello, Topsy.
Sorry I'm late.
That's OK, Raa Raa.
Splishy-sploshy-splashy fun,
stand back, Huffty, here I come!
Whoa! Look out!
Oh! Um, I'll get your mop, Topsy.
That's very kind of you, Raa Raa.
H-H-Hey! >
Whoo-hoo-hoo! Ha-ha-ha! >
Wahey! Whoo-hoo-hoo!
Boingy-bouncy-boingy fun!
Watch out, Ooo Ooo, here I come!
- Whoo-hoo-hoo!
  - You came back, Raa Raa.
Of course. I love going boinga-boinga.
- Wahey!
  - Whoo-hoo!
  - Whoo-hoo-hoo!
- Wahey!
- Ha-ha-hey!
  - Yippee!
- Ha-ha-ha!
  - Ha-ha!
- Whoo-hoo!
  - I like your new hair, Raa Raa.
  - Whoo-hoo!
- Oh, this? It's a mop.
  - Ha-ha-hey!
- Oh!
Um, I've got to go. Back soon!
Bye. Whoo-hoo-hoo!
You were a long time, Raa Raa.
Well, lost mops are hard to find in the jungle.
Yes. Now, where were we?
I mean, splashy fun.
Stand back, Huffty, here I come!
- BOTH: Raa Raa, watch out!
  - Hey, watch out!
Look at you two. You're all wet. Sorry.
It's OK, Raa Raa.
No, it's not. I'll go and get my towel from my house.
  - Whoo-hoo!
  - Wahey!
  - Yippee!
  - Whoo-hoo!
Wahey! Whoo-hoo!
- Wahey!
  - Whoo-hoo!
- Hooray!
Raa Raa, come and join in.
- Coming!
  - Whoo-hoo!
  - Wahey!
- Boingy!
  - Bouncy!
  - Boingy fun!
Watch out, Huffty, here I come!
  - Huffty?
  - You just said Huffty.
Huffty? Oh, yes. Huffty needs a towel.
Thanks for reminding me. Bye.
I've got the towel!
- Whaa!
  - Ah!
Uh-oh. Oops!
Here you go, Huffty.
Um, I think we'll need a much bigger,
much drier towel to clean up this mess, Raa Raa.
Oh, Raa Raa? Raa Raa? We're waiting! >
Is that Ooo Ooo calling you, Raa Raa?
Um, yes. I'll go and see what he wants.
  - Raa Raa?
- O-h-h-h-h-h!
  - Hello, Raa Raa.
- Hello, Zebby.
I'm making lemonade. It's going to be super messy!
Do you want to help?
Oh! I love lemonade!
Fizzy-whizzy fun!
Sorry, Zebby, but Raa Raa's helping me clean my train.
Er, yes. I'm having splishy-splashy fun.
But Raa Raa's playing boinga-boinga with us.
Um... yes.
I'm having boingy-bouncy fun, too.
Boingy-splashy-fizzy-funny-bouncy and fizz.
Watch out, someone. No, that's not right.
Um... Oh, I don't know!
Raa Raa is playing with us.
No, no, no. He's helping me clean my train.
No, he isn't. He's playing on the drumpolines.
Why can't he make lemonade?
'What's the matter, Raa Raa?'
Oh! I wanted to have fun with everyone,
but I've made everyone sad.
Now I'm sad, too.
'It's hard to have fun with everyone
'when everyone is doing something different, isn't it?'
But not if we all do the same thing
all together!
Listen, everybody!
  - Raa Raa's supposed to be helping me!
- Ssh!
  - Raa Raa's supposed to be...
- R-aa-aa-aa-aar!
We can all have splashy, boingy and fizzy fun
if we all do everything together!
ALL: Hooray!
Splashy-bouncy-fizzy fun. Watch out, jungle...
ALL: Here we come!
ALL: Splishy-sploshy-splashy fun,
clean together, everyone!
ALL: Boingy-bouncy-boingy fun,
bounce together, everyone!
ALL: Fizzy-whizzy-slurpy fun,
watch out, tummy, here it comes!
'Well done, Raa Raa.
'You all got everything done!'
Yes, we did. And we all had fun.
'Boingy-splashy-slurpy fun.
'It's beddy time for everyone.'
