Storyline

Rod and Emu are spending all alone for Christmas at the Pink Windmill. Grotbag intends to catch Emu and prepare him for The Magnificent Fred's Christmas dinner. Fred's assistant Croc returns to the Gloomy Castle and joins his former mistress and Redford on their mission. But Rod receives unexpected help from King Boggle, Princess Hortensia and Odd Job John, who have slipped out of Boggle's Kingdom because the invisible screen that surrounds it disappears at Christmas.

Trivia

Broadcast between the first and second season of Emu's All Live Pink Windmill Show, this special features the return of Croc, now played by David Tate but still voiced by Freddie Stevens. Stevens had requested a new character to play at the start of the All Live Show that would not require his face to be hidden by a mask. But his replacement character, Robot Redford proved less popular with the young viewers, who constantly wrote into the show asking for Croc's return. From the start of the second season onward, Grotbags would have two assistants: Redford and Croc (now voiced by Tate). See more »
