Join this trio as they head south for the winter in a hilarious road trip. But watch out! Cat is waiting around every bend, and he’s one pesky feline.
After Bird and Squirrel crash land in the South Pole during a raging blizzard, a penguin named Sakari thinks Bird has come to rid her village of a hungry Killer Whale.
But when Squirrel finds out that Bird will actually be fed to the Killer Whale as a sacrifice, they hatch a crazy plan to escape.
With good timing, a little luck, and help from Sakari, they just might make it out alive. Or they might end up as whale food!
Bird and Squirrel are almost home. All that’s left for them to do is cross the Great Mountains. But before they can, the duo stops to chase off wolves hunting a baby bear and in the process Bird gets a knock on the noggin that gives him amnesia.
Now Squirrel has to set aside his fears and keep both Bird and the bear cub safe as they journey on foot over the mountains.
But with a pack of hungry wolves on their tail, can Squirrel step up and be the leader they need to keep them all alive?
It’s been a long, crazy trip around the world. Now the duo is back in their beloved forest, and Bird wants to throw a party!
But Squirrel isn’t in the mood to celebrate. His house needs a good cleaning, the river has been dammed up by a pesky beaver, and the forest animals are jittery about a growing menace.
Will the dam dry out the forest? Will the mysterious new danger ruin the party? Will Bird finally convince Squirrel to let go and just have a good time? Find out in their hilarious new adventure!

But Birdie wants to go with her mom because staying home is so BORING! So Bird convinces Squirrel (despite his better judgment) to have some fun while Red is gone.
And as far as Bird is concerned, nothing is more fun than setting off in search of the most elusive creature of the forest: Bigfoot!
And even though Squirrel teaches Birdie that being prepared is always best, nothing can prepare them for the crazy adventures ahead!
The dangerous Horned Toad 500 cross-country race is coming up and Bird’s father has always won it. But when his dad gets injured, Bird reluctantly joins the race to save the family honor.

Along the way, the duo learns that, win or lose, having good friends and family will always get you to the finish line.
When best friends Bird and Squirrel find a treasure map, adventure calls once again. Squirrel is worried about the dangers ahead, but this time, Red and Birdie aren’t going to miss out on the fun.
The foursome’s path is full of kooky clues, wacky weather, and creepy creatures. What sort of treasure is at the end of their journey? And can Bird work up the courage to tell his best friend something important?
