A beautiful, multi-coloured dog can be devoured in the cruelest way imaginable. A fox can be so tired and sad that he doesn’t even have the will to live anymore, but then, in the big murky forest he can unexpectedly hear his friend Other Fox calling him, and can become cheerful again. A tiny yellow bird can accidentally pass gas while lost in the excitement of flying and make the other birds laugh so hard that they nearly fall out of the sky! A leopard’s name can be Tõnu, and he can work part-time as a model in a photography studio. A greedy rabbit can completely escape punishment… And a little bear, who is in danger of a dreadful drowning at the bottom of the big cold sea can be saved at the last moment by a big fish. Anything can happen!
