A giant panda named Pancada works at a boxing club. He has dreams of one day becoming a professional dancer, and is in love with a waitress named Beth. His boss, a polar bear named Polaris, is scheduled to fight a large bear named Freak Teddy. Pancada visits his dancing instructor, Master Xin, who teaches him about loyalty. The following day, Polaris has found a black costume, and tells Pancada to wash it for him. The costume shrinks in the wash, resulting in Polaris having the appearance of a panda bear.

Before Polaris leaves for a vacation, Pancada himself enters the ring to fight Freak Teddy ...

In a scene in which Pancada is meditating with Master Xin, he informs him that he will be competing in a boxing match against Freak Teddy, Xin gives this advice to Pancada, "If you fight like you dance, you can never go wrong". The problem with his advice is that earlier in the film when Pancada auditioned in front of a group of judges in an attempt to persuade them to induct him into their dance academy, he failed to impress them enough and so they turned him down. Xin's advice is incredibly poor, fundamentally incorrect and it just doesn't make any sense. See more
