- Hello?

Hello, can anybody hear me?

This sure is a wild jungle.

I think I'm lost.

Hello, anybody out there?

- Well, well, well, a giraffe?

You must not be

from around here.

- Oh no, I'm from the zoo.

- The zoo?

What on Earth is that?

- That's where my

friends and family live.

- I see.

And what are you doing here?

- I was on my way to a

giraffe rehabilitation center

when the plane

took a wrong turn.

Where am I?

- You, my dear visitor,

have entered the magnificent

and mysterious Jungle

of the Animal Warriors.

- The Jungle of the

Animal Warriors?

Whoa, sounds like

an incredible place.

- The Jungle of

the Animal Warriors

is an incredible place.

- Why is that?

- This is where

many, many years ago

the jungle animals took a stand

against the invading

forces of the monster.

- The monster?

- Yes.

Don't you know

anything about it?

- No, I don't.

- Well, it's an

adventure for the ages.

- Whoa, what happened?

- Ah, it's an incredible story,

wrought with mystery

and adventure.

- You've got to

tell me about it.

- Well, my dear giraffe, if

you really want to know--

- I do, I do!

- It was just another day,

a day that would forever

change the destiny

of all of us jungle animals.

- Look at what I'm wearing!

- I'm wearing coral snake.

(bright tropical music)

- Cool, do they come in green?

(snake gasping)

- Ouch, ouch.

Koo, finally, there you are.

- Yeah, what are you doing?

- Happy birthday, Koo.

- Oh, I'm glad

somebody remembered.

- Of course I did.

That's because I, I...

- What?

- Nothing.

- I don't know what's

going on around here,

but there's less and

less food by the day,

and most definitely less trees.

- Don't worry about it now.

Come with me.

- Where?

- To, to take a walk.

- No, I can't right now.

- Too bad, Koo, because

there's a place.

- What place?

- No, it's okay if you're busy.

- No, no, please tell me.

Please, please, please!

- It's just that there's

a place that is...

Full of all kinds of fruits.

- All kind of fruit?

- Yes, tons.

- Really?

- You can't imagine.

But if you don't wanna come--

- No, no, I wanna go.

Wait for me, Kee.

I want to go.

- Hey, Koo.

What are you doing?

- Hello, Jacquarai.

- Hello, Koo, happy birthday.

- Thanks.

You remembered, too.

- Yes, and I'm sorry

I can't go to your--

- Shh.


- You can't go where?

- Uh, to, to hang out with you.

We're so busy here with

all that's going on.

- What are you talking about?

- I'm talking about the monster.

There's no more trees.

There's no fruit,

and the river--

- The monster?

- What monster?

- Who is this monster?

- I don't know, but I'll tell

you guys I'm pretty scared.

- Oh yeah?

Not me.

I'm not afraid of any monster.

I can do this.


- What are you doing?

- He's playing dead.

See? Look.

- Enough, Kee.

You're tickling me.


But seriously, Jacquarai.

What monster are

you talking about?

- The monster that

comes from the--

- Jacquarai, sweetheart.

- My mom and dad

are planning to--

(clearing throat)

- What did we tell you

about talking to strangers?

- They're not strangers, Dad.

This is my friend Koo.

- All the same.

You shouldn't talk

about our family plans.

- It wasn't his fault.

I was just asking him--

- There's nothing to ask.

- Come on, little one, let's go.

We must keep swimming.
