A kid rides a bicycle on a sunny day. Poc flies over a street. He is a little green bird.

A song plays SAY HEY, SAY HI
SAY HOW DO YOU DO
TO A FINE YOUNG ZEBRA
BY THE NAME OF ZOU
OHHHH, OHHHH
OH, OH, OHH

Zou opens a garden door and Poc comes in flying. Zou is a 5-year-old zebra boy wearing yellow dungarees.

Zou happily climbs the stairs into his house.

The song continues MEET MUM AND DAD,
NANA, TOO
GRANDMA, GRANDPA,
ALL OF YOU
OHHHH, OHHHH
OH, OH, OHHH
I'VE GOT A FRIEND IN YOU
I'VE GOT A FRIEND IN ZOU
I'VE GOT A FRIEND IN YOU
I'VE GOT A FRIEND IN ZOU

Zou hugs his parents and his grandma and eats a cookie his grandpa offers him. He walks to the garden where his friends play volleyball and joins them. Then, his family comes out and they all stand together.

The name of the show appears on a white background. It reads "Zou."

Today’s episode is "Zou the chef."

Zou jumps out of Mister Zoey’s shop and says HUP.
THANK YOU, Mr. ZOEY!

Elzee is a five year old zebra girl.

She lives next door; she pops her head over he fence as Zou walks in and says HA!
HI, ZOU!
HAVE YOU BEEN SHOPPING?

Grandma chuckles.

Zou says YUP!

Poc jumps out of the shopping basket and Zou says HUH?
HEY POC!
I HOPE YOU HAVEN'T BEEN HELPING
YOURSELF TO ANYTHING IN THERE.
I NEED IT ALL FOR MY CAKE.

Poc opens his wings and acts offended as he chirps.

Elzee says YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE
A CAKE?

Zou says HMM.

Zou climbs on the fence as he says HNN!
YUP.
FOR MOM.
GRANDMA'S GOING TO HELP ME.
IT'S MOTHER'S DAY.

Elzee wears a purple dress.

She looks worried, covers her mouth and says OH NO!
I FORGOT!

Zou says I'M GOING TO MAKE A
CARD, TOO.
YOU COULD MAKE ONE WITH ME.
FOR YOUR MUM.

Elzee says OH, THANKS ZOU!

Grandma calls out from inside. She says ZOU!

Zou says COMING, GRANDMA!
MUM'S GOING TO AUNT ZELDA'S,
SHE WON'T BE BACK FOR AWHILE
BUT WE SHOULD GET STARTED.

Elzee turns a plank in the wooden fence and walks into Zou’s backyard.

He says COME ON.

They laugh and run up the steps to the house.
They bounce on grandpa´s belly.

Zou says WHOOPS!
SORRY, GRANDPA.

Elzee says ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

Grandpa rubs his cheek with a handkerchief and says HA, HA, HA!
I'M FINE.
I'VE JUST BEEN TO SEE YOUR
NANNA.
SHE GAVE ME ONE OF HER KISSES.
HA, HA!

Zou says NANNA'S KISSES CAN BE
A BIT MESSY!

The kids follow nanna into the kitchen carrying the brown grocery basket.

Now; Elzee stamps red heart on a card for her mom as Zou stands on a stool and pours sugar in a light blue bowl.

Grandma says THAT'S ENOUGH
SUGAR,
ZOU.
NOW YOU MIX THAT INTO THE
BUTTER.

Zou takes a spoon and stirs the mixture. Nanna cracks an egg; and then takes another from the packet.

Poc stands on another egg and chirps as Nanna reaches for it.

She cracks it and put the shell on Poc’s head. He loses balance.

Zou says HUH?

They laugh as they see him.

Elzee says POC!

He tumbles on the kitchen table and raises the shell a little; Elzee helps him take it off.

Grandma says NOW YOU BEAT THE
EGGS TOGETHER, AND THEN POUR
THEM A LITTLE BIT AT A TIME INTO
THE SUGAR AND BUTTER MIX.

Zou watches her tap the bowl and says HM...
HM.

Grandma says STEADY, ZOU.
IF YOU POUR THE EGGS IN TOO
QUICKLY, THE MIXTURE WILL GET
LUMPY.

Zou pours in the eggs as Nanna beats the batter.

He says WHAT NEXT, GRANDMA?

Grandma says NOW FOR THE FLOUR
AND THE SIEVE.

Zou tries the mixture and says MMM.

Grandma brings a sieve and says HOLD THE SIEVE
ABOVE
THE BOWL AND SHAKE IT GENTLY
INTO THE MIXTURE.
I'LL MIX IT IN.

Zou sieves the flour and she mixes it.

Grandma says THERE.
THAT LOOKS JUST PERFECT.

Zou frowns and says HUH?
ER, IT DOESN'T LOOK VERY
CAKEY.

Grandma says NOT YET.
NEXT WE POUR THE MIXTURE INTO
TWO CAKE TINS.

She puts two red cake tins on the table and he pours it in.

She says THAT'S IT.
THE SAME AMOUNT IN EACH TIN.

Elzee says HOW'S THE CAKE COMING ALONG?

Zou says IT'S A BIT GOOEY AT
THE MOMENT.

Grandma picks up one the tins and says THERE.

Elzee takes the other to the oven.

Poc jumps on the wooden spoon and it flies up in the air and lands on Elzee’s picture.

He falls in the bowl with a splat.

Grandma says THERE, THEY SHOULD
BE READY IN ABOUT HALF AN HOUR.

Zou says AND WHILE WE'RE WAITING
I CAN MAKE MUM'S CARD.

Elzee says I'VE NEARLY FINISHED
MINE.

She walks to the table and holds her head as she sees the batter splattered on her card.

She says LOOK!
OH NO!
WHAT HAPPENED?

Zou says HUH?

Poc chirps from inside the green bowl.

Elzee says OH POC!

Zou says WELL, WE'VE STILL GOT
TIME TO MAKE ANOTHER ONE.
AND THIS TIME, POC, YOU'RE NOT
NEEDED.

Poc puts his wings behind his hack and frowns.

The oven timer dings.

Grandma says HAVE YOU FINISHED
YOUR CARD YET, ZOU?

She takes the cakes from the oven and puts it on the table. Zou and Elzee draw.

Zou says YUP, GRANDMA.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

He holds up a card with a heart and a drawing of mom in the centre.

Grandma says IT'S BEAUTIFUL,
ZOU!
I'M SURE MUM WILL LOVE IT.

Elzee holds up her card; it shows red hearts and flowers.

She says I MADE MINE TOO!

Grandma says WELL, YOU ARE A
VERY
CLEVER PAIR.

Zou says WOO!

Elzee says I'M GOING TO GO HOME
NOW AND GIVE MY MUM THE CARD.
THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP!

Nanna smiles and chuckles.

Zou says SEE YOU LATER, ELZEE.

Elzee says BYE!
SAVE SOME CAKE FOR ME!

Grandma says ALRIGHT, ZOU.
NOW WE NEED TO ICE THE CAKE AND
DECORATE IT.

She puts the cake on a dish.

Zou says YEAH!

They cover the cake in pink icing and Zou makes some flowers over the top, he laughs and puts some coloured candy in the centre of each flower.
Then he draws a red icing heart in the centre of the cake.

Grandma says MY!
YOU'VE MADE A LOVELY CAKE, ZOU!

Zou says THANKS FOR HELPING ME,
GRANDMA.
AND NOW WE CAN...

The door opens and he turns and says OOH!
MUM'S BACK!

Grandma chuckles.

Zou runs to the door and says MUM! MUM! MUM!

He sees dad standing there and says OH... HI, DAD.

Dad says HELLO, ZOU.
NOT PLEASED TO SEE ME?

Zou laughs and says OF COURSE I AM.

He hugs dad and says I JUST...
I THOUGHT IT WAS MUM.
IT'S MOTHER'S DAY, AND I WANTED
TO SAY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.

Dad says WELL, I'M SURE SHE'LL
BE VERY PLEASED WHEN YOU DO.
IN THE MEANTIME, I'M HUNGRY!

Now Zou sits on the yellow couch and sees a character on T.V say
BOOTS
WELLINGTON, DETECTIVE!

Zou grunts.

Dad says MMM-MMM!
NOW, THAT'S WHAT I CALL
DEE-LICIOUS!

He hands a plate to Zou and asks WOULD YOU LIKE A PIECE OF
THIS CAKE, ZOU?

Zou says HMM?
OH, YEAH.
YES PLEASE, DAD.

Poc flies to the table and chirps as he sees it. He flutters over to Zou and flaps his wings.

Zou watches Boots Wellington an T.V and says WOW!

Boots Wellington says YEAH, YOU
GOTTA GET UP PRETTY EARLY IN
THE MORNING.

Janitor says YOU GOT ME THIS
TIME, Mr. WELLINGTON.

Dad brings another slice of cake and says PRETTY GOOD CAKE, HUH?

Zou says MMM, YUMMY!

He looks at the icing and recognizes it.

He says HMM?
OH, NO!

Dad says WELL, I THINK IT'S
SCRUMPTIOUS.

Zou runs to the kitchen and back.

He walks sadly to the living room and says OHH!

Dad says IS SOMETHING THE
MATTER,
ZOU?

Zou says THE CAKE
I MADE IT FOR MUM!

Dad raises his brows and says OH... I...
I'M SO SORRY, ZOU.
I DIDN'T REALIZE.

Zou says YOU DIDN'T KNOW, DAD.
I'LL HAVE TO MAKE ANOTHER
BEFORE SHE GETS BACK.

Dad says ZOU, ER... ARE YOU
SURE YOU KNOW HOW?

Zou says GRANDMA HELPED ME MAKE
THE LAST ONE SO I KNOW WHAT TO
DO NOW.
AND I WANT TO MAKE IT ALL ON
MY OWN.

He takes a bowl and says EGGS... BUTTER...
NEXT WE NEED SOME FLOUR.
SUGAR!

He pours some sugar in and says THAT SHOULD BE ENOUGH SUGAR.

He throws the packet on the floor and puts a pack of butter in.

Poc chirps and knocks over the candy jar.
They all fall on the ground.

Zou says HUH?
POC!

Poc chirps and lands next to the bowl. It’s full of egg shells and the batter looks weird.

Zou says SORRY, POC.

He throws in some flour and the powder makes his sneeze.

He says A... A... ACHOO!

Poc falls on the floor; the bowl turns and lands on Zou’s head; the kitchen is in a mess and the front
door closes.

Mum says I'M HOME!

Zou says UH-OH!

Mum says HMM?

Zou says OH, NO!

Mum walks to the kitchen and says BIZOU?

Poc chirps and bangs his head on the wall.

Mum looks around the kitchen and says OH... HMM.
OH MY!
BIZOU?
WHAT... WHAT'S GOING ON?

Zou pops up with the dirty bowl on his head and says I WANTED TO MAKE YOU
A CAKE.
FOR MOTHER'S DAY.
BUT I HAD A BIT OF AN ACCIDENT.

Mum laughs.

Dad walks in and says HEY, WHAT'S GOING
ON IN HERE?
OH.

Mum takes the bowl and says BIZOU, WHAT A MESS!
I THINK SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE
GIVEN YOU A LITTLE HELP,
BIZOU.
COME ON.
LET'S GET THE PLACE CLEANED UP,
AND THEN I'LL HELP YOU MAKE
THAT CAKE.

Zou says THANK YOU, MUM!

Now Zou draws a red icing heart on the cake and says FINISHED!

Mum says NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL
A CAKE!

She kisses him on the cheek and says MWAH!

Zou hands her the card and says HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Mum says AW, THANK YOU, ZOU.
IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

Zou says DO YOU WANT SOME CAKE
NOW, MUM?

Mum says WELL, THERE ARE SOME
OTHER MOTHERS IN THE HOUSE.

Zou says HUH?

Mum says SHOULD WE ASK IF THEY
WANT SOME, TOO?

Zou says WHAT OTHER MOTHERS?

Nanna laughs.

Dad says HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Grandma laughs.

Zou says HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Mum laughs.

All the family sit around the kitchen table and share a cake as they say HAPPY MOTHER'S
DAY!
HOORAY!

Grandma says WHAT A BEAUTIFUL
CAKE!

Mum says ZOU MADE IT.

Nanna says IN THAT CASE, COME
OVER HERE, ZOU DEAR.

Zou walks towards her.

He says HUH?

Nanna kisses him on the cheek and says MM-WHAH-WHAH-MM!

He laughs.

Zou laughs.

The end credits roll as Zou plays with his friends and spends time with his family.
