This is a whale of a tale about a butcher who yearns to be a fish and turns into a salmon.

It inspires LeVar to go on an exploration of exotic marine life, tide pools and dolphins while he explains that pretending to be someone else can be exciting and also a way of discovering how wonderful it is to be yourself.
