"Golden Bamboo Lemur" is the twenty-first episode of Season Three of PBS Kids show, Wild Kratts. It was written and directed by Martin Kratt. It is the eighty-seventh episode of the series overall and premiered on July 15, 2015.
On their last day in Madagascar, The Wild Kratts crew gets a call from a Madagascan Wild Kratts kid that a new baby golden bamboo lemur is born. They soon meet the little golden lemur and soon meet Donita Donata who is collecting the lemur for a new golden dress. And to keep the Kratts busy, she releases a pair of spider monkeys and probosci's monkeys to cause madness in Madagascar.
The episode begins with a live-action segment. The Kratt brothers find golden bamboo lemurs in the forests of Madagascar. Afterward, 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 the 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 in 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. In the end, Gold Puff is reunited with her mom.
The show transitions into the concluding live action segment. The Kratt brothers watch as a golden bamboo lemur eats bamboo. Afterward, they conclude the episode by saying “Keep on creature adventuring; we’ll see you on the creature trail!”

- This episode notes that this is the Kratts' final Madagascar adventure. However, in later episodes, they would remain in Madagascar, which would imply they occurred before this episode, or they returned after the events of this episode.
- This is the second time Jimmy uses holograms of jewels above the Tortuga after Seahorse Rodeo, but this time his plan fails because Donita does not fall for them because she knows that those jewels are fake. Dabio blasts them away this time.
- This is the first time Koki and Jimmy clap and like Donita's dress, under Dabio's control.
