A tiger without stripes? Can the animal that terrifies the other inhabitants of the jungle be a real tiger at all? To stop being laughed at the little tiger goes in search of his stripes. He discovers them as shadows on his fur, paints them on with mud, but nothing lasts. How else can he get his stripes?

The big wolf leads a contented life: He reads books under his tree, grumbles over bills and listens to music, quite undisturbed. Until one fine morning the little wolf turns up and moves in with him. The little wolf listens to his records, turns the newspaper into paper planes and, to top it all, snores. The big wolf doesn’t need this kind of companionship. Or does he?

At night, when little Matilda’s room gets dark, the great adventures begin: Who wants to sleep when there’s so much to discover by torch light in the room? In the play of light and shadow, she sees her toys from a very different angle. This puppet animation shows how Matilda overcomes her fear of the dark and gives free rein to her creativity.

The chains are oiled, tyre pressure checked and helmets fastened. And here’s the start signal for the last bicycle race of autumn for the hedgehog, the turtle and the rabbit family. The course takes the forest-dwellers over hill and dale, over mountains and through valleys. Will they all make it to the finishing line before the icy wind of winter catches up with them? They will have to pedal hard!

But his skills don’t help him at the fair, the miniature golf course or the cinema, which makes his placement officer despair. He’s ready to give up at job no. 42. Only an almost extraterrestrial rescue mission can help him now.
