PlotEdit

The series focused on the adventures of three animal friends: two kittens named Tango and Ricky and a puppy named Charlie. Tango and Ricky live in their own house in the country side while Charlie lives in a small cave in their backyard.

The three meet up every day and play together at the backyard of Tango and Ricky's house. Tango and Ricky's backyard also has a large tree which is the home of an absolutely massive bird named Flap, who is a good friend of the main characters and easily eight times their size, and visits them frequently.

Along the series the main characters spend most of their time making up games and stories to act out and learn about life and friendship.
