Episode Summary

You see there was a time when Giraffe didn't have a long neck. Her neck was all short and stumpy, and she was a very delicate eater. All the food in Tinga Tinga seemed to make her tummy go funny. Then one day Lion suggested she try some honey. With the Bees' permission, Giraffe tried to lick the honey, but it was deep, deep inside the tree. Giraffe squeezed her head into the honey tree and then - eeeek! Her head got stuck! Summer, autumn and winter passed by with Giraffe's head stuck inside the tree, but she was quite happy because the honey was so delicious. The tree grew and Giraffe's neck got longer and longer! After a whole year 'POP!' she managed to pull herself free, and from that day on Giraffe has a very long neck and can eat the freshest leaves on the very tops of the trees!
