Follows the adventures of eleven-year-old Zach Nichols (Pamela Adlon) and ten-year-old Annie Redfeather (Kath Soucie) as they suffer pain from issues involving other children. To solve these problems, they seek council from a group of anthropomorphic animals whose names come from the Greek - Plato (Kevin Michael Richardson), an old and scholarly bison; Aurora (Gillian Barber), a wise red-tailed hawk; Socrates (Frank Welker), a rambunctious and wisecracking bobcat; and Aristotle (Jim Cummings), a feisty and bookish prairie dog. This ensemble teaches the kids virtues by telling them stories from the Book of Virtues.
Did You Know?
In his "Adventures From the Book of Virtues", William J. Bennett
included several pieces written by or concerning Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates, as they were amongst his favorite philosophers. Three of the animal characters are named for them. (The leader Plato's being a buffalo is also a reference to Bennett's nickname "Buffalo Bill".) The fourth and the only female who proves one of the two most sagacious, Aurora is the only exception. In keeping with the Greek origins of the others' names, she was named after the Greek deity of dawn. See more
