Synopsis

When Elton’s questions become too much for his family and neighbors, the young elephant sets out on a journey to find his own answers. But it's said that curiosity killed the cat, and it may not be too healthy for elephants either.  Will Elton's insatiable inquisitiveness make him wiser, or will it make him dinner?
