Tree Fu Tom Full Episode Guide

  • Zigzoo borrows things from his friends without asking to create an invention to collect special Dragon Berries that are now at perfect ripeness. This leaves Ariela without her Crop Chopper, unable to clear her field to plant a new crop of Thunder popcorn. Squirmtum is left stranded on the roof of Ariela's Barn after Zigzoo takes his Hover Platform and Rickety is left without his web washing-line and almost all of his socks! Tom and Twigs turn detective to find out who has taken all of the missing things and at the end of their trail find the culprit, Zigzoo with loads of fresh Dragon Berries. Unknown to anyone, the berries belong to a giant Boing Beetle which bounces into Treetopolis to get them back. Zigzoo is mortified and heads off to return the taken things and apologise to his friends. Tom and Twigs deliver berries to the Tower for Treetog but have to shelter from the giant bouncing Boing Beetle! Scaring it off with Big World Magic, Tom realises that the beetle is after the berries and an epic chase ensues. The chase eventually leads to the Boing Beetle's home (where Zigzoo took the berries from) and here they discover Boing Beetle babies; the berries are their food! Everything falls into place and Zigzoo apologises; he'll never take things without asking again.

  • The Tree Fu Rangers are on Ariela's Ranch today, trying to win their 'Green Fingers' Badge. Much to the apprehension of his friends, Tom plants some carrot seeds he's brought from the big world and they grow huge! Try as they might, they can't pull them up. Unknown to his friends, Zigzoo rushes off to create an invention to help and starts pulling the carrots down from underground with his new Harvesting Hands invention (a wearable frame with two Helping Hands controlled by joysticks). This sparks fear in the Treelings who thinks the carrots are alive and out to get them. Their fear is fuelled as Zigzoo causes a cave in which creates a sinkhole above that Ariela falls into. Though Tom saves her with Big World Magic, Zigzoo then decides to blast the carrots upwards instead and this only adds to Tom's problems as he tries to reassure his panicked friends that there must be a rational explanation. As the giant carrots rain down, the Treelings fear drives them into a dangerous part of the caverns where they encounter Zigzoo in his wearable invention covered in debris and broken carrot from the cave-in. In their panic to escape this 'carrot monster' they unleash a torrent of sap from a blocked cave and only Tom's Big World Magic can save them. As the flood subsides the Treelings see that the carrot monster is actually Zigzoo and understand what has happened; the carrots are just harmless vegetables after all and actually tasty too. Tom wins his Green Fingers Badge and heads home.

  • Searching for new fungus to complete his Fungopedia fungus-identifying invention with the Tree Fu Rangers, Zigzoo discovers a strange fungus. Instead of relying on his knowledge to identify it, he sends it back to Treetog to identify and triggers an epidemic illness. The unusual mushroom is a Triccup Fungus which causes sufferers to slowly turn grey and hiccup black bubbles which spread the illness further! Zigzoo leads Tom and Twigs off into the Fungus Forest to find the very rare Fruit of the Fix-It Fungus in the deepest darkest part of the forest; the only cure for a troublesome Triccup epidemic. Zigzoo's complete-reliance on his gadgets gets him past many obstacles but leads him into trouble as he loses his gadget bag in an accident and has to cope for the first time without any gadget assistance. Zigzoo's under confidence leads to near disaster and Tom and Twigs become trapped. Left alone, only Zigzoo can get to the Fix-It Fungus cure in time to save the Treelings. Faltering and floundering at first, Zigzoo manages to overcome his under-confidence and the many obstacles in his path and find the fix-it fungus. With Tom and Twigs, he returns the fungus to Treetopolis just in time to save Treetog and the Treelings!

  • On a hot day in Treetopolis, Tom and Twigs are more intent on enjoying Frosty Berry Smoothies than clearing Warble Weeds from Ariela's Ranch - when the grown-up weeds are touched, they sing in super-loud operatic style that blows everything nearby away to make way for their seeds that explode out when the singing reaches a crescendo. Because they don't remove the rapidly growing Warble Weeds when they are small and easy to remove, the problem just gets worse and is much much harder to resolve later when the weeds have grown huge and threaten to destroy Ariela's barn and infest the whole of Treetopolis.

  • Tom and Twigs are desperate to get their Super Helper Badges and quickly become over stretched trying to help everyone who asks as soon as they ask, never seeing any job through and each job descending into chaos. Due to their neglect, Treetog's prize sap root overgrows, stretching down into the caverns to drink the magic Sap Lake and threatens Treetopolis.

  • Squirmtum feels that the sap mining and delivery job is rubbish and is made to feel inferior by Tom and friends so he decides to try out Tree Fu magic to become Treetopolis' new super hero, causing more harm than good.

  • For the first time ever, Tom can't do the moves for a Tree Fu magic spell. His struggles to find a way to avoid further failure only compound and escalate the problem; as a broom and Zigzoo's Wagon both brought to life by a magic potion run riot around Treetopolis. Tom learns that if at first you don't succeed, try, try again; each time you try, you get a little better.

  • When Twigs selfishly breaks the last Squizzle and the Mushas spore bike runs out of juice they are forced to work together on a quest to find the elusive Squizzle tree deep in the Fungus Forest. Can they learn to share before their selfishness causes a disaster they can't fix?

  • Rickety guides the Tree Fu Rangers in obtaining their Fungus Finder Badges suggesting they 'be prepared' by taking some essential supplies on a mission to the Fungus Forest. The troop set off with Tom and Twigs in charge of the supplies, which they naively jettison along the way. The Mushas sabotage the mission sending Rickety to sleep with a Stinky fungus leaving the group without a leader. Chezz steps forward taking charge but gets them all lost and then he, Petal, Rickety and the Mushas, end up caught in a large Sprite trap fungus. Tom and Twigs come to the rescue and learn a big lesson about being prepared.

  • Ariela always uses her little grub Glowy to help her find bubble-roots - rare and highly sought after buried super magical treats. She is stuck in her ways and so is ill equipped when Glowy rushes off on her own into the caverns. Glowy finds a bubble-root of her own and the powerful magic in it changes her into a wild creature: a Gremmel who runs off into the dangerous Wind Tunnels. Ariela has to change her ways and try something new to get her Glowy back and save her friends from certain doom!

  • It's carnival day in Treetopolis and the characters create floats and acts to impress Treetog and the Sprites; the best act will win the coveted Carnival Crown and a feast of Trillicakes. Tom joins Twigs' comedy act but finds that he isn't funny. He casts a spell on some chuckleberry juice to make everyone laugh at what he says. He learns to be careful what you wish for as everyone rolls around at every single word he speaks. This causes no end of trouble for the Treelings and allows the Mushas and their mischievous CATAPULT WAGON all the way to the courtyard. Tom must find a way to reverse his spell so he can save his friends and the day.

  • Tom and Twigs find Rickety's old racing car; a vehicle in which he famously lost the famous 'Conkerball Run'- a Treelings vs Mushas race. Stink and Puffy won't let him forget it and Tom and Twigs challenge them to a rerun of the race to win back the Conkerball cup and the honour for the Treelings and, most importantly Rickety. The Mushas race on their spore bike and threaten to easily beat Tom and friends who have to learn to work together to drive the car.

  • Strange treequakes beneath Treetop Castle lead Tom and Twigs into an epic adventure in the caverns on the trail of a giant Woodgrub. Running into much bigger trouble than they'd expected, Tom and Twigs must brave the shaking sap tunnels full of holes and sticky slime to save their friends and stop the castle from collapsing.

  • On a day of fun and pranks in Treetopolis, the Mushas use a crafty trick to cause trouble for the Treelings, making it look like Tom and Twigs are to blame. They have to find out how to thwart the Mushas' masterful mischief to clear their names and save the big party at the end of the fun festival. It's only with Big World Magic help though that Tom can really save the day.

  • Tom has a little pocket-sized 'Tickle Teddy' that walks around and has a "Tickle Time" function (arms vibrate). His friends gently mock him for loving the 'babyish toy'. The Mushas get their hands on it and make scores of 'Slime Teddies' which are slime clones of Tom's teddy. They march around firing slime everywhere. Tom sends them back with Big World Magic and causes the Mushas' machine to malfunction making a GIANT slime teddy! Tom uses Big World Magic to make his teddy giant too for a Godzilla type face off where giant Tom's teddy tickles giant slime teddy until it explodes!
