Episode Summary

The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
One blazing summer day, Rat and Otter are fishing by the River Bank, but Otter's son Portly eventually grows bored and wanders away by himself. Then, soon after Rat and Otter pack up their fishing tackle, an otter hunt comes charging along the River Bank, changing their concern for Portly into terror. An emergency meeting is held at Rat's house to discuss what to do, and even the weasels are genuinely happy to join the search for the little otter. The search continues well into the night along the River Bank and through the Wild Wood, but Portly is not found. The distraught Otter proposes to keep watch at the landing stage where he taught his son to swim, and Rat and Mole decide to take the boat further upstream to continue their search. They approach a mysterious island, and find themselves following first some strange music, and then a soothing voice. They eventually find Portly, asleep and unharmed, on the island - but who has rescued him from the otter hunt? And could the voice really have come from the Piper at the Gates of Dawn?moreless
