<”PENTABI” in Antarctica>

One day, Adelie penguin and his penguin friends, who want to be popular with the ladies living in the Antarctic, meet a lost emperor penguin and decide to take her back to her family. Can Adelie and his friends get her back safely?

Disappointing point: Adelie penguins are much less alert to danger.

Disappointing point: Koalas sleep all day long because of a poisonous substance contained in eucalyptus!

Will Usao and Tsukiko make it back to their home?Disappointing point: Hares don’t really want to jump.
