Jacques and Sophie meet the extraordinary Ananas — a talking pineapple! The musical group, The Squelettes introduce themselves in a song, and Pilote offers to take everyone for a parachute jump — but Ananas is the only volunteer.
Up in Pilote’s plane, Sophie, Jacques, and Ananas fly over the province of Quebec. Jacques and Sophie land safely from their parachute jump, but Ananas is threatened by a large crow. Pilote calls on the Snowbirds to help, and Ananas makes an unexpected landing.
Jacques and Sophie go camping in the forest, but leave Ananas behind because it is too dangerous. Frightened by skeletons, they become lost and Ananas and Pilote must set out to find them.
Sophie and Jacques are lost in the forest, so Annonceur checks at a lost-and-found desk. Ananas finds them, and sings them an encouraging song about bravery. At last, Pilote comes to their rescue.
Annonceur gives Jacques and Sophie a big test, and they have to explain the rules to Ananas. The test turns out to be an unfair one, so Sophie and Jacques refuse to continue. The Squelettes sing "Je déteste les tests!”
Hoping to earn some money to buy a badminton set, the children look for work. However, they soon realize that the jobs they have found are not easy. Ginette finds a job delivering pizzas, but her attempt to deliver by plane causes a disaster.
Still trying to earn some money, the children go to deliver a package, but arrive late and return home empty-handed. Their disappointment fades when they receive the gift they wanted all along — a new badminton set!
An invitation to a Grand Dinner arrives for Ginette, and although the others are not invited, they devise a plan to attend. They manage to sneak in with a delivery of fruit, but Ananas is in trouble when he is spotted by the chef.
The children disguise Ananas as a bouquet of flowers to attend the Grand Dinner, because the chef wants to serve him for dessert! However, Ananas’s true identity is discovered and they are forced to flee, with the chef in hot pursuit.
Ananas coaches the children for the spelling championship between l’école de Telefran~ais and l’école Einstein. The teams end the match with an even score, so Annonceur calls on the team mascots to break the tie.
L’ecole de Téléfrançais wins the spelling championship when Ananas spells the final word. Jacques and Sophie, the new champions, are invited to meet the prime minister!
Everyone is excited when an invitation arrives, but disappointed when it announces another test. However, after a fun treasure hunt, they all change their minds about tests.
Jacques, Sophie, and Ananas
seek support pledges for a 20-km run for the blind. No one will support a pineapple —that is, no one but a blind bat!
After running a few kilometres, Ananas finds that his legs are getting very tired. Encouragement from his friend the bat helps him to finish, and as he hobbles across the finish line he receives a special prize.
Sophie is moving to Paris, and Ananas wants to come along. He hides in her suitcase, but an observant inspector discovers him before he gets too far.
A new neighbor moves in, and Ananas thinks he is a gorilla. When he finds he has been tricked by a boy dressed in a gorilla costume, he plans an unusual welcome.
When Jacques, Michelle, and Ananas go to the museum, they find out that a big dinosaur lies buried beneath their town.
Ananas tries to reconstruct the skeleton of a huge dinosaur from bones that he and the children have uncovered. They all receive gold medals for the lucky discovery.
Sophie is returning home from Paris, so Jacques and Ananas each buy her a present. Louis Questionneur, man of a thousand and one questions, is surprised at Ananas’ s answers.
Louis Questionneur continues to annoy Jacques and Ananas with his many questions. At the airport, they play video games while waiting for Sophie to arrive from Paris.
When Jacques, his cousin Catherine, and Ananas are stargazing late one night, Ananas looks through the telescope and sees a new comet. The local TV station invites him to talk on television about his discovery.
Humiliated by a television reporter who could not credit a pineapple with the discovery of a new comet, Ananas writes to the president of the Astronomers Society. Professor Astronomix makes Ananas an honorary member.
A mysterious stranger informs the children that the monkey’s paw they found possesses magical powers and will grant four wishes. Annoyed at being ignored, Ananas inadvisedly wishes he were with pineapples rather than humans!
Momentarily oblivious of the power of the magic paw, the children make wishes they do not really want — with disastrous results! Ginette comes to the rescue.
Rehearsals begin for the play "The Three Musketeers" and Ananas, as d’Ananas, throws himself enthusiastically into the role — much to the despair of Annonceur.
As rehearsals of "The Three Musketeers" continue, d’Ananas goes to the rescue of La Belle Dame, risking an encounter with the villainous Duc.
Appointed official photographer to the newspaper Le Fruit, Ananas finds he has a lot to learn about photography.
Ep. 28 Ananas needs an exciting news photo for the front page of Le Fruit. Nothing seems newsworthy until he discovers the first shipment of grapefruit has arrived.
Ep. 29 Ananas falls in love with Brigitte Banane, a famous singer and the subject of his latest photographic assignment. Unfortunately for him, Brigitte is not so impressed with Ananas.
A city order, declaring the Téléfrançais yard closed, brings consternation to all. Fortunately everyone, including Annonceur, finds a new interest.
