A Kiwi family of five go on a world tour. They visit many different countries and see some amazing things, but the children soon realise that whatever the world has to offer – it can be equalled or bettered right here in New Zealand.
One of their excursions is to the Berlin Zoo where a couple of pandas live. The pandas are not happy with their environment and escape. While on the run from their keepers Hans and Helga they pop up from time to time in the same countries the family visits. The story is interspersed with songs, and dance, and culminates in two songs as the finale.
