Watch Teaser

It's amazing what can happen out in the countryside. A fox raises three chicks because they believe he's their mother. A pig and a hare stand in for the stork and deliver babies. Then there's the duck who plays Santa Claus. Mixing things up is good for laughs and for creating wondrous new friendships among the animals.
