In-Depth Episode Synopsis

Warning: the below synopsis may contain spoilers

It's geezer fox Vince's birthday and, to surprise him, metro-sexual fox Nelson organises a rooftop picnic to celebrate. However, after an incident with a party popper goes wrong, Vince falls off the roof and ends up in a coma, leaving Nelson to look after his patch.

Stepping up to his new responsibilities, Nelson attempts to put the tearaways living on Vince's patch back on the right path by teaching them the benefits of being middle class.

Destiny tires of dating a bossy sheepdog, meanwhile, and turns her attention to a comatose Vince who, in his unconscious state, turns out to be the perfect date as he can never tell her what to do. It's all going so well, until Vince wakes up...

Meanwhile, cynical pigeon Kali plots revenge on Harry Hill after seeing her mum getting electrocuted on You've Been Framed.

Song: Middle Class Is Magical - Sung by Nelson.
Written by Adam Miller.
