Jolly Olly Octopus

Jolly Olly gets the giggles and starts a tidal wave of laughter that leaves all his ocean friends rolling around the sea bed. When Jolly Olly Octopus starts to laugh, everyone soon knows it. It’s not long before scaly sides are splitting, crustaceans are chuckling and all of the sea creatures are giggling away in an ocean of fun! That is, everyone except Shark. When the biggest, meanest creature in the seven seas shows up, suddenly things aren’t quite as funny anymore…
