Join the eccentric Doctor, his human companions and his exotic menagerie of animal friends on an extraordinary adventure to find the Giant Pink Sea Snail, that holds the secret of life and making the world a happier place. With help from the Pushmi-Pullyu and his trusty sidekick Polynesia The Parrot, the larger-than-life Doctor Dolittle teaches us not only to talk to the animals but to listen to them as well!
