Based on the book by Judy Schachner, Skippyjon Jones is an enchanting musical about a little kitten with big ears and even bigger dreams. Sometimes he pretends to be a bird, sometimes he pretends to be a llama, and sometimes he pretends to be a whale. Anything but a Siamese cat! When he finally decides he wants to be a dog, it's not just any dog. Skippyjon transforms himself into Skippito Friskito, a chihuahua who is the greatest canine sword fighter in old Mexico - complete with mask, cape, and accent! But when the local pack of chihuahuas is terrorized by the gigantic bee, will Skippyjon be a "fraidy-cat" or the top dog?
