Chuggington Wiki


Zephie's Monkey Business is the thirty-third episode of the first season.


Zephie is excited as Vee has sent her to help Dr. Gosling at the Safari Park with the animal check-ups. Enroute, Zephie meets Emery, who warns her about the naughty monkeys as they'll pinch her wipers and bell, making Zephie very scared. So, whilst she helps Dr. Gosling, she decides to check Twiga and Ebo so to avoid the monkeys. When it is time to check the monkeys, Zephie decides to "check" something only to get lost and end up amongst the monkeys. Zephie gets very scared, only to realise that the monkeys are more scared of her whenever she screams. Realising that Emery was only teasing her, Zephie likes the monkeys.

Meanwhile, back in Chuggington, the three trainees are having an excerise with some cranes and have a relay race as they throw big beach balls to each other. During the race, Koko briefly loses motivation and becomes annoyed when Wilson drifts too slow. Wilson easily realizes his mistake and, with a lot of motivation, accelerates down the track and says, "can't catch me!". This causes Koko to snap sharply, and for a split second release a furious facial expression, but she quickly calms down. Then, they go to the Safari Park where they see the monkeys with Zephie. Zephie realises that she needs to find Dr. Gosling, but the monkeys are still on her. The three trainees use their cranes to throw the big beach balls down to the monkeys. Zephie gets Dr. Gosling to check the monkeys and she decides that monkeys are her favourite animals.
