Dependable, Preschool, Animals, Tiger, Wit
Mouse proclaims to all that he is the mighty tiger. All the other animals try and name the characteristics of a tiger and how a little mouse might not fit them—but mouse has an explanation for each of them. When a real tiger shows up Mouse still plays the game, and by looking at certain characteristics convinces this tiger he is really something less scary. This extends to all the animals. The birds are simply lollipops and that yellow snake a banana. Mouse is never satisfied though, finally convincing himself he is much mightier than even the greatest beast around.
