Snowed Under: The Bobblesberg Winter Games is the third special of the series along with being the finale of the Original Series.


Bob and the gang leave their home town of Bobsville and head for its snowy and mountainous twin town, Bobblesberg. Bobblesberg is hosting the Winter Games and Bob is asked to build a magnificent log cabin for Bobsville's mayor. Wendy is busy practising for the skiing event, so Bob appoints Scoop as second-in-command to help prepare for the Winter Games. Meanwhile, Scarecrow Spud is a secret stowaway. Benny, a special digger comes to the team's aid when the rest of the special machines are snowed under. When Muck, Dizzy and Roley are assigned to help Scoop with his build, that's when his cranky side rears its hideous head. Oh No..... Can they fix it in time? Let's hope so.....
