“Golden Bamboo Lemur” is the 21st episode of the third season of Wild Kratts, originally airing on PBS Kids on July 15, 2015. Overall it is the 87th episode of the series. The episode was written and directed by Martin Kratt.
In this episode, the Wild Kratts are all ecstatic because a girl named Patricia found golden bamboo lemurs, including a newborn. They arrive on Madagascar to see them in person, but Donita Donata finds out about the newborn lemur and captures it in order to use it as an ornament for a golden dress.
The episode begins with a live action segment. The Kratt brothers find golden bamboo lemurs in the forests of Madagascar. Afterwards, they ask their “What if?” question and the show transitions into the cartoon segment.
A girl named Patricia finds golden bamboo lemurs, including a newborn, in the rain forest of Madagascar. She takes a picture and contacts the Wild Kratts about her discovery. The Wild Kratts ecstatically cheer and head back to Madagascar. Meanwhile, Donita Donata and Dabio are trying out monkeys as an ornament for a golden dress she plans on showing off at a fashion contest, but none of them impress Donita.
The Wild Kratts land on Madagascar. Patricia leads them to the golden bamboo lemurs. Martin names the newborn Gold Puff. Donita finds out and tells Dabio that the newborn lemur would be perfect ornament for her dress. Once she lands on Madagascar, she overhears the Kratt brothers telling their teammates that the reason why lemurs only exist on Madagascar and not the rest of Africa is because they were unable to compete with large predators and monkeys. Suddenly, Dabio in a monkey suit gets the attention of the Wild Kratts. Donita nets Gold Puff, and subsequently, Dabio releases two spider monkeys and two proboscis monkeys. Dabio and Donita then leave in their jet. Aviva, Patricia, and the Kratt brothers set out to capture the monkeys while Jimmy and Koki set out to stop Donita. Knowing that they are unable to teleport Gold Puff out of Donita’s jet, Jimmy instead teleports Donita’s golden dress into the Tortuga. Donita finds out and goes after them.
After using Creature Powers to capture all the monkeys, the Kratt brothers, Aviva, and Patricia find the Tortuga, but it had crash landed, and Jimmy and Koki had been captured by Donita and Dabio. They find Donita’s jet. Martin uses Fossa Power to snatch Gold Puff off of Donita’s dress. Chris uses his Chameleon Power Suit’s tongue to free Jimmy and Koki. At the end, Gold Puff is reunited with his mom.
The show transitions into the concluding live action segment. The Kratt brothers watch as a golden bamboo lemur eats bamboo. Afterwards, they conclude the episode by saying “Keep on creature adventuring; we’ll see you on the creature trail!”
