| 24 min

In episode 5 from the Wapos Bay series, missing sled dogs and a pile of homework are just a few of the things Talon has to deal with before setting out for the trapline with his father, Alphonse. Talon can't wait to go away for a week but the exciting trip means lots of extra responsibility. He has to complete the schoolwork he'll miss before leaving. While Talon struggles with a creative writing assignment, T-Bear and his grandfather Mushom have trouble with the dog team. T-Bear incorrectly ties the dogs up and they escape. In this episode, intense preparations and avoidable mishaps teach the children the importance of listening to elders and taking care with everything you do.

Wapos Bay is a Gemini Award-winning stop-motion animation series that follows the adventures of 3 kids from a Cree community in northern Saskatchewan.
