Storyline

Follows the adventures of eleven-year-old Zach Nichols (Pamela Adlon) and ten-year-old Annie Redfeather (Kath Soucie) as they suffer pain from issues involving other children. To solve these problems, they seek council from a group of anthropomorphic animals whose names come from the Greek - Plato (Kevin Michael Richardson), an old and scholarly bison; Aurora (Gillian Barber), a wise red-tailed hawk; Socrates (Frank Welker), a rambunctious and wisecracking bobcat; and Aristotle (Jim Cummings), a feisty and bookish prairie dog. This ensemble teaches the kids virtues by telling them stories from the Book of Virtues. Written by Nate S.

Pretty good, actually. . .
18 March 2003 | by Huang_GaiSee all my reviews

I saw this show when I was about 10. The basic plot was of a pair of kids who would go away to this wonderland where animals talked and each episode would be a folktale of different racial origins, be it Chinese, Japanese, Native American, Greek, whatever, in a condensed and easy to comprehend form.

Each episode has a moral and is animated rather well. For the most part, most of the episodes are rather entertaining, though I haven't seen it in like 5 years. Watch if you see it on ^-^
