Inhalt

The Fearless Four

A sad fate awaits all four at their present owners. They take to their heels and meet up on the country road: Gwendolyn the cat, Buster the dog, Fred the donkey, and Tortellini the rooster. Not only their refugee existence and loneliness forge them together - it is, above all, their love of music that proves to be a strong bond of friendship. They decide to make capital from their vocal chords as a singing group: "The Fearless Four" want to become famous in Paris on the lines of "One for all and all for one"! However, they end up in Bremen - all the fault of signpost pointing in the wrong direction. The hanseatic town is ruled by the concern of the mysterious tyrant Dr. Greed who has forbidden singing by police order. The four newcomer bards also get into his clutches. They actually get a contract and are allowed to make appearances, but they have to waste their musical talent on mindless advertising jingles. They need to call on all of their unbeatable team spirit and heroic courage to stand up to the evil doctor. And so The Fearless Four finally manage to free the city from its curse.
