The fantastic Mr. Mati works as a zoo veterinarian. Unfortunately, his workday is too short to fully accommodate his love for animals and his job, so he has no other choice but to sometimes take work home with him. As such, Mr. Mati shares his home with bats, capybaras, raccoons, and Indian cobras, not to mention elephants and a Przewalski’s horse. Naturally, unusual companions such as these bring about many a wonderful adventure, be it the presidential ball, marching in a tank parade, or a trip to Berlin to present Mr. Mati’s new animal book.
