Elephant’s Island

After a storm at sea, Elephant is washed up on an island. He calls for help, and look, here comes Mouse, sailing towards him. Mouse lets Elephant come aboard, but the boat is far too small and breaks under the weight. Dog and Crocodile cannot save the shipwrecked duo, either.
So they all stay on the island. It is going to be so much fun…
