Series 1, Episode 8 - Nelson The Naughty Arsonist
The return of Bonfire Night unearths some bitter memories among the Mongrels.
After failing to protect his friends as fire warden the previous year, metrosexual fox Nelson faces an angry mob demanding an end to the event for good. However, when a rather bewildered and incompetent Marion is nominated as leader of the rebellion, things don't quite go as planned. After having her wings clipped by a safety conscious Nelson to stop her flying into fireworks, a grounded Kali faces a new danger from Vince, who suddenly sees Kali as an easy meal. Kali has to do some serious plotting to devise a way of avoiding becoming Vince's dinner.
Meanwhile, Destiny sets her sights on a modelling career after being spotted by a dog photographer in the park. However, the result of the photo shoot isn't quite as glamorous as she had hoped.
Some sources give this episode the unofficial title Bonfire.
