Alan is an alligator who spends hours polishing and brushing his big, scary teeth. He takes pride in continuing the family tradition of spooking the jungle creatures. But Alan has a secret. His teeth are false! He is extremely sad when his teeth are stolen and he is no longer intimidating. The jungle animals agree to return his teeth if he will use them to be helpful. The best part is that he can still be frightening as he tells his new friends scary stories at night.
