Tigers are the best, or so thinks Fox. With a big imagination (and a little bit of paint), he transforms into a growling, prowling tiger. Soon his friends Turtle and Rabbit are likewise inspired to embody their dreams as a zipping, zooming race car and a beeping, booping robot. Despite their rained-out celebration, Fox learns to appreciate that he, in his own special way, is also the best.
