Within these shorts a raccoon is mistaken for a house cat; a frog comes to terms with the diet of the forest, and forest poachers meet their match.

Join these curious characters as they explore our world, both right in front of them and far far away. In one short, Taffy is a raccoon whose owner thinks she is a fluffy cat. When these fancy ladies look to get their impressive pets DNA tested, hilarious scenes ensue. In another short, an inquisitive little frog meets some of the animals that live in the neighborhood: a mole, a rabbit, a deer, a mouse and asks them what they eat. Well... what do you think herons, foxes and snakes eat? In another short, when looking to have a woodland picnic, three friends must find the poachers who've been busy deforesting.
