Theme: Animals, like people, come in different sizes, shapes and colors; and these differences make each of them unique.

Imogene wakes up one morning shocked to find a pair of antlers growing out of her head, and embarks on a comical adventure discovering practical uses for this new condition.
 

LeVar takes a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo to explore why animal looks and shapes are important to how they live. He also discovers the difference between horns and antlers. A bird specialist introduces viewers to unique birds; then string band members, who dress in feathers for the Philadelphia Mummers Parade, show off their costumes and routine.
