Meet animal friends who live in the world of Animazia

Paddy the Beaver

Paddy The Beaver is an enterprising, hard-working, and all-Canadian animal.  He creates a dam in the where the Laughing Brook meets the Smiling pool, and worries the other animals that the water will not reach the main River.  

But Paddy is a master engineer and monitors the water flow perfectly.

A plainspoken beaver, Paddy does not take any guff and tells it like it is.  When he's not working he likes to whittle a stick with his teeth and watch the river.

Grandfather Frog

Grandfather Frog is the wise old man of the river.  He knows everyone, and he knew their parents too... he remembers how everything used to be.

G.F. has lived in his lily pad home in the Smiling Pool since he was a tadpole.  He always wears his suit jacket no matter what the kids' fashion is.  He dispenses wisdom and corny fables, and  he teaches the other animals about life along the river.  

Because he's a frog, he is very sensitive to any pollution in the water.

Jerry Muskrat

Jerry Muskrat is a very laid back dude who likes to swim, surf, and take some rays in his deck chair beside the Smiling Pool.

He lives in a mud house built into the river bank.
Friends with Ryder Rabbit and Jimmy Skunk, Jerry likes to play pranks, and to punk his neighbors down by the swimming hole.

He has an easy laugh and mellow attitude... just  DON'T ever call him a rat!
