Nip and Tuck
The parents of beaver kits Nip and Tuck think their offspring are too young to help build the new dam. Nip and Tuck insist that they’re old enough to help, but to no avail. One day, when disaster strikes the dam in their parents’ absence, the other animals fear that the pond is doomed. They are convinced that Nip and Tuck are too young to fix the damage themselves. But, much to everyone’s surprise, Nip and Tuck spring to the rescue, fixing the dam, saving the pond and becoming the heroes of the day.
