Episode guide
Risky Business
It Takes Two

I Troll is the 14th episode of The Dumping Ground. It was first broadcast on 21st October 2016 at 4:30pm on CBBC and CBBC HD.


On learning that the young people can no longer go on a trip thanks a budget mismanagement, Floss attempts to raise some cash by getting the others to paint artwork and hold an art show, which she hopes will get her attention. But when this fails, she demands a transfer. Elsewhere, Mo gets everyone to play a fantasy game he has created.


  • Floss dresses up as a pirate for "Speak Like A Pirate Day", a reference to the real life day Talk Like A Pirate Day which takes place annually on September 19th where people dress up as a pirate and talk like a pirate (as its name suggests). Assuming Speak Like A Pirate Day takes place on the same day as its real life counterpart and also assuming Floss was not lying, the episode takes place on September 19th.
  • The episode is also referred to as "Troll", including on the BBC iPlayer.
  • This is the second time someone has tampered with a food order. This previously occured in the classic series episode Brothers.


  • Harry's animated character is used in the animations, even though he had departed as a main character 3 episodes ago.


Floss: (describing a painting) It's a BIG...BLUE...blob.

Floss, Finn and Sammy: (imitating pirates) Ya-harrr!
