Francis, see if you can find the...

Where are you?

Here, Duke, Turk. Here, boys.

Where's Francis? Go find him.

Now you wait just one minute and I'll

have some sugarcane for you.

Now, come along, little fella.

I won't hurt you.

Now, just let me fix this.

Here, little elephant. Come here.

That's right.

Come on, little elephant.

I wouldn't hurt you.

Come on, little fella.

I wouldn't hurt you.

I have some nice fresh sugarcane

for you.

Come on.

Come on. Just a little closer.

That's right.

Come on, little fella.

Francis, where are you?

Now you just put your foot...

right there.

Come on, little elephant.

A little closer.

Just a little bit closer.


Now stop pulling!

What's the matter?

You get out of here!

Francis, where are you?

You get away from my elephant.

Get out. He's my elephant.

Duke, Turk, come on!

You bit him enough.

Good old Duke.

Did I tell you

you could leave the beach?

You might have been eaten, wandering

off that way!

What do you have to say

for yourself?

- I'm sorry but...

- But what?

Can I keep the baby elephant,


Now I'll keep you.

Come on, Rocky, get going.

Alright, Francis, hold it.

Slack off a bit.

Come on, Rocky, back up.

Good little fella, back up.

- Right.

- Hold it.

- That was a good idea, Ernst.

- Thanks, Fritz.

Come on.

Fritz, no more full planks,

just some odds and ends.

I think we've got enough.

Well? What do you think of it?

I'd like it a lot better if I knew

tigers couldn't climb trees.

They won't climb this one.

You probably won't have seen

such a house.

I'm sure of that.

The world is full

of nice, ordinary little people

who live in nice, ordinary

little houses on the ground.

But didn't you ever dream of having

a tree house?

No. Mostly I dream of having a house
