They’ve come in pursuit of “The Great Tiger Warrior” whom they hope will take up the defense their colony from a heard of walruses that threaten to take over and throw out their way of life.
Maurice, sensing his duty, assembles an unlikely team of misfit jungle buddies which include Fred, a musical warthog, Batricia who although a bat, is afraid of the dark, the sweet but simple gorilla Miguel, and finally a terrified tarsier named Gilbert.
