River Rat and Cat
© 2006

RR&C at ChildsPlay
Childsplay (Arizona)

The compulsive collector, River Rat, wants her friend, the pampered Cat, to become self-reliant. Cat wants to remain fully pampered. Dale Beaver wants the one remaining tree, which River Rat currently rents to Cat. To get the tree, Dale Beaver must break up the already unlikely friendship of River Rat and Cat. A Keystone Kops kind of komedy for kids and their kin.
