With plans going awry, these short films teach us that the only constant we have are our friends and our intuition.

The characters in this collection of animated shorts look to join together to make things happen! In one short, a playtime pirate and his mates are on a treasure hunt, which turns into an animal rescue, instead. In another short, a sweet pod of peas has adventures through the change of seasons. In the last short, an owl schoolmaster tries to present the year-end show, but the hilarious evening does not go as planned.
