There’s a rude hippo in the bathroom, a boorish bear in the den and pesky parrots everywhere. The duo is excluded from games by a team of chimps and hippos, taunted by a cocky kangaroo, insulted by an armadillo and assailed by a jam-slinging tortoise. When a scary lion brings the mayhem to a fur-raising climax, the two buddies resort to hiding in the attic. How will these unlikely heroes win their battle with the bullies?
