Overview

001107611Mutasian Entertainment LLC5171714.0On the island of Mutasia, where everyone is a mix of two or more different animals, it sure is hard to find the perfect pet. But if anyone is up for the challenge, it’s Figley! When his friend, Billie, admits that she’s grown tired of her boring pet pugapillar (pug-caterpillar), Figley sets out to find her the weirdest, wildest, and wackiest pets on the island! He introduces her to an assortment of mixed-up animals like a dolphin-pony, a lizard-cat, and a flamingo-elephant-goldfish! But with each positive feature that comes with a critter’s mix, there’s an unexpectedly troublesome trait too! As the exotic animals begin destroying her house, Billie starts to reassess what’s really important in a perfect pet.
