Melanie the Mink is a guest on The Animal Show, appearing in the episode "Giant Otter & Mink". Melanie tells Stinky the Skunk and Jake the Polar Bear how minks move around in the water.

After the interview, Melanie befriends Bunnie Bear and Sandy the Giant Otter, and the trio sings "Sing a Little Breezy Number." In the "Habitat Time" segment, Sandy and Melanie follow Bunnie and Armstrong the Chicken Hawk into the Habitat Time Door.

At the end of the episode, Bunnie invites Sandy and Melanie to a sleepover. Stinky, Jake, and Armstrong have their own sleepover as the credits start to roll; Bunnie, Sandy, and Melanie ambush them, resulting in a pillow fight.
