When developers start destroying their rainforset, local wildlife decide to teach them a lesson - 'We'll take them on a guided tour and show them sights never seen before'. Luring the gang deep into the jungle, they see amazing things - 'pyranhas and electirc eels, searching for their tasty meals.' Poisonous frogs and army ants scurry around the forest floor, while high up in the canopy, bats hang out, and howler monkeys leap around at the Jungle Disco! When they come face to face with the Jaguar, the Jungle Queen, the gang reckon they've been conned - 'Whatever's that? It's just a great big pussycat!'. When they start to attack, the jaguar warns them - 'Money doesn't grow on trees, but precious treasures such as these.' If the trees and creatures are removed, they and the rainforest will be worthless!
Colourful costumes, lively songs and dances with a funky rapping script make this a dazzling show!
