Based on the popular classic young boys novel by Robert Stevenson, only with animals added! All of the characters (save two) are anthropomorphized, although it really doesn't mean anything with respect to the story itself (as in, the animal characteristics do not really play a role in how the characters act). It's really just to make the story a little more palatable to a wider (and a bit younger) audience.

The story is pretty straight-forward. Young Jim Hawkins gets his hands on a treasure map, and heads out to sea in search of his fortune. He ends up ...
