Roddy is a decidedly upper-crust "society mouse" who lives the life of a beloved pet in a posh Kensington flat. When a sewer rat named Syd comes spewing out of the sink and decides he's hit the jackpot, Roddy schemes to rid himself of the pest by luring him into the "whirlpool." Syd may be an ignorant slob, but he's no fool, so it is Roddy who winds up being flushed away into the bustling sewer world of Ratropolis. There Roddy meets Rita, an enterprising scavenger who works the sewers in her faithful boat, the Jammy Dodger. Roddy immediately wants out, or rather, up; Rita wants to be paid for her trouble; and, speaking of trouble, the villainous Toad - who royally despises all rodents equally, making no distinction between mice and rats - wants them iced...literally. The Toad dispatches his two hapless hench-rats, Spike and Whitey, to get the job done. When they fail, the Toad has no choice but to send to France for his cousin - that dreaded mercenary, Le Frog.
Life peacefully passes by in the cosy coastal village of Sunnytown, where a little cat named Mitcho and a small elephant Sebastian spend their time. All seems quite ordinary until one day, the beloved mayor, JB, unexpectedly disappears from the town!
While fishing, Mitcho catches a message in a bottle – enclosed is a tiny seed, which the duo plant, and a letter from the missing JB, who writes that he is stranded on a Mysterious Island and has made a great discovery. Then, just as things can’t get any stranger, Mitcho and Sebastian wake up the next day to see the seed they planted has magically turned into… a giant pear!
Using the ginormous pear as a boat, our two new friends must gather their courage and embark on a great journey, facing sea dragons, pirates and curious ghosts to help save the Mayor and bring him home. Bright, bouncy and busy from start, take a great big bite of The Giant Pear, the perfect family adventure!
