WAIT! I don’t know what to do, and I didn’t agree to do it!


AL is not tough, cool or popular. Al is clumsy, forgetful, and small for his age. Don’t underestimate him though. Big things often come in small packages.

WADE is a show off owl who loves giving “Atomic Noogies”. He never misses an opportunity to remind everyone that he’s the coolest owl in the Piney Woods.

ZABEL is a “whale sized catfish” who is all knowing. He sees something special in every critter that he meets…even Al.

GRAM is one sarcastic rabbit. He loves to state the obvious and point out the ridiculous every chance he gets.

RYLIE is a brave and stubborn mouse. She’s never afraid of a little danger or unexpected adventure even if that does mean getting in over her head at times.
