PONGO’s PARTY!

The children’s show now streaming online, featuring the voice of children’s TV favourite Justin Fletcher as Pongo the Pig!

Today is the day that Pongo the Pig has been waiting for – that’s right, it’s his birthday!

He’s been dropping hints to his friends all year, so is looking forward to a fantastic party… but the trouble is, nobody seems to remember!

Molly-Moo the Cow is making a mess baking, Sheena the Sheep is rehearsing with her band, and Marty MacDonald is in the middle of decorating – whatever can they be up to?

And as if that wasn’t bad enough, it looks as though someone is taking Pongo’s birthday presents – whoever can it be?

Dress in your best party clothes and help make Pongo’s Party a day to remember, by joining in a show full of fun, songs and laughter!

With a colourful farmyard and host of loveable puppet characters, Pongo’s Party is a family show that lasts for 55 minutes and is particularly suitable for 2 – 7 year olds – from the team who brought you the hit show Santa’s
