Abstract:

Hot hippo: Hippo was hot. He longed to live in the water like the fishes instead of on dry land. But such a change required permission from Ngai, the god of Everything and Everywhere. Possum magic: An Australian possum named Hush used to think that the magic used by Grandma Poss to make her invisible was fun - until, one day, Hush wants to know what she looks like. Together they must find a way to make Hush's wish come true. Tikki Tikki Tembo: What's in a name? A great deal according to the Chinese of long ago who honored their first son with a grand, long name. But as the viewers of this tongue-in-cheek film soon discover, such names can be very dangerous. I, Crocodile: An Egyptian crocodile lives happily in his new home in Paris, until a chef tries to turn him into dinner. The crocodile escapes through the sewer and lives to tell about his newest gastronomic joy - people!
