Description
As the tiger enters the forest, the other animals are frightened and hide, leaving the tiger lonely and without friends. After all, he can't change his fierce appearance. Then the other animals devise a plan -- paint him calico! The plan works -- until it rains! To make matters worse a hunter enters the forest stalking the mighty tiger. Peace is restored when the animals realize that it is truly the nature of the creature that matters, not his appearance.
