What do you do when your plans go awry? Follow an owl, a squirrel, and a bird on their adventures and see how they solve any issue that arises.

The goofballs in this collection of animated shorts want to pursue a plan - but can they catch a break? In one short, an owl schoolmaster tries to present the year-end kindergarten show. Unfortunately, the evening does not go as planned, because one unforeseen event after another occurs even before the curtain rises. In another short, Squirrel is just nuts about his new bike – even though he’s not only never ridden it, he has hesitations. Can Bird help his pal break out of his shell for once?
