- A very special tale about a rather naughty cat.
- Once upon a time there was a serious well-behaved young black cat... or so her owner thinks. What she doesn't know is that Kitty sneaks out at night to go hunting! Unfortunately our furry friend isn't a very good hunter and she gets into all sorts of scrapes while prowling around the countryside. Ans on this particular night she meets the foxiest hunter of them all - Mr. Tod! Mrs Tiggy-winkle and a very familiar rabbit in a blue coat also make appearances.
