Synopsis: A fantastic journey sometimes begins with one tiny little hop. Ribbit is a frog with an identity crisis. Unlike frogs, he hates hopping and has a strong aversion to water. Feeling a misfit, he is full of questions about his life... and so together with his best friend, a flying squirrel, he embarks on a soul-searching journey in search of the truth and his rightful place in this world. Set amongst the breathtaking backdrop of the Amazon rainforest, they surge ahead in their quest for the answer to life's mysteries... encountering a zany variety of colourful characters, both friend and foe, along the way. Confusion reigns when Ribbit is accidently hypnotised. Is Ribbit a human prince trapped in a frog's body by an evil curse... or is he merely a confused colourful denizen of the jungle?

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Party time!

RJ... cannonball!


Whoa! RJ!

Hah! That's what I call

some serious splash!

You got me all wet.

Hey, Ribbit, go for it!

Last one in's a rotten egg.

Oh, that's a disgusting idea.


You can do it.

Show us how it's done.

Come on, Ribbit!

Do it!

Quit joking around!

Come on in!

Let's get this party started.

Go for it, Ribbit.

I'll even give you a head start.

You won't drown, you're a frog.

You spend half your life

breathing underwater.

Well, you know what they say.

Change is good for the soul.


Oh, yeah, that's right!

Ribbit doesn't like to swim.

He doesn't even like water.

Me? Afraid of the water?

I don't think so.


A frog that doesn't like water?

Hah-hah... what a dork!

Come on, Ribbit!


Do it! Do it!


Oh, hah-hah, hey!

The water's great!


Dude, think she'll make it?

Yo, she sure shredded

it last time.

Most excellent.

Crash and burn for five, dude.

Whoa, oh... oh, boy!


Ow... ow... ugh!

They say that landing

is the hardest part.


That's what I call making an entrance!

Go, Sandy!

Are you okay?

Of course, I am.

Hey, guys!

Gus, how's the fly fishing?

Pretty tasty today,

you want some?

No, I already had my lunch.

Thank you for asking, though.

Oh, hey, Casey,

how's your mom?

Big Berry... did you finally

get that love song going?

Oh, beautiful.

Hey, Cecile, you are looking

good, girlfriend.

Has somebody been cleaning

your feathers?

You see?

Hey, Ribbit, doesn't

Cecile look sharp?

Ribbit? Ribbit?

Hey, Ribbit, wait up!

Hey, Ribbit,

where are you going?

How was the party at the pond?

Why are you leaving?

Ribbit, will you stop already?

What is bugging you?

Sandy, just look at me.


I'm not like

all the other frogs.

I don't really fit in.

I look so different from them and

I feel like I just don't belong.

And then to top it off,

I'm poisonous.

I... I'm a poison tree frog.

I mean, can it get

any better than that?

Ribbit, so what? Who cares

that you're a poison tree frog?

Who cares? I care!

That's who cares.

I'm the only poisonous frog

at the pond.

Come on, Ribbit.

Come back with me.

The pond is for animals

who like water.

I don't like water.

How's that for irony?

A frog who hates water.

That's like a caterpillar

who hates leaves.


Where are you going?

To the tree house.

Man, this place

always creeps me out.

I really don't understand why

you like it here so much.

Must be a guy thing.


You read this stuff?

Of course, are you kidding?

Come look at this, Sandy.

All these animals...

they have a place.

They... they have a purpose.

A purpose?

That's what you want?

Labels, Ribbit...

small frog that hates water.

And you know what else?

I hate jumping.

A frog who hates water

and jumping.

So, you're a bit different.

So what?

Come on, doesn't it seem

just a little weird to you?

Even my name is weird.

Ribbit... who names

their kid Ribbit?

Well, what name do you want?

Hm... Norman.

There's a good name.

I want to be called Norman.


The name is Norman.


At least you have

other frogs around you.

Me, the only squirrel

I see...

is when I wash my face

in the water.

Wow... I never thought

about it.

But still, look at you.

I mean, you're so popular.

Everyone cracks up when you pull

that crash landing stunt.

You want to know a secret?

It's not a stunt.

I'm just really bad at landing.

But I cover it up, because

I don't want to be laughed at.

Sandy, I never guessed.

I mean, you fly so great!
