Pingu is playing with a red rubber ball but while playing with it, he accidentally throws it on the top of his igloo, then in an attempt to get it, it lands on his Skis and gets impaled. He then goes to get a ball from Pingo and Pingg, causing them to tease him, then when he tries to grab the ball, he bounces on it and Pingg puts a nail on the ground and it impales the ball. Pingo and Pingg try to get Pingu with snowball, but he makes a decoy of himself by painting a portrait of him on an Ice Mound, which fools them very well, he then goes home, where his mother assigns him to babysit their egg. Later, he starts dancing to the song Woodpeckers from Space, only to make the egg start dancing, which goes into a frenzy. Pingu's father then sees this and goes inside, stops the record player and is shocked to see Pingu tangled in yarn and the egg on the wall. He grabs the egg, and then Pingu's mother comes in and Pingu gives her a hug. Finally, Pingu and his father clean up, then Pingu's mother knits him a nest.

  • Although this pilot only aired once, it is included as a bonus feature on the Japanese DVD of the third season.
  • Pingu's Noot Noot sounds are made by a kazoo.

Goofs
