Bob's Birthday is the tenth episode of the first season.


It is Bob's birthday but everyone pretends they have forgotten as they are throwing him a surprise party. Bob goes off to mend the stable wall, while Wendy makes a cake. Dizzy and Muck make one too - a concrete one! Even greedy Spud helps. When Bob returns, he is delighted with his birthday surprise - and two cakes!
