Tiny dolls have a tiny adventure in this tiny episode, where we watch yet another show about toys that come to life. If Toy Story had been set in the UK in the 1980s, there would have been a lot more haunted and/or racist dolls in it.

If you inherit a load of creepy old dolls, should you;
a) play with them,
b) display them proudly, or
c) never turn your back on them, don't even blink, burn them, burn them all and scatter the ashes as far apart as possible...?

Nerys Hughes is obsessed with alligators. 
"See you later alligator," she would say when waving goodbye. 
But if you replied with "in a while, crocodile," she would get angry. 
She used to make people say "in a while, alligator" instead. 
It doesn't even rhyme.

Imagine Rod, Jane and Freddy, but Scottish, and with more kettles. That's this.
