Scary Spud is the twelfth episode of the first season.


Launching into karate routines, Spud doesn't notice when his nose drops off and rolls down a mole hole. Dizzy notices and organises a search party. The machines find nose-like objects - a traffic cone or bicycle horn. Luckily, the moles push the nose back out and Spud is delighted!
