The animated kitten and puppy duo like to get together and do things like swim, camp, and investigate opposing ideas (like the difference between light and dark, or what the difference between being higher and lower). The two play games to help viewers familiarize themselves with the ideas being presented. Adding to the fun are sequences that highlight materials and activities that relate to the episode’s themes.
