Tooter is a skunk that just can't stink. He tries everything from scientific experiments to self-help manuals. In despair, he wishes on an evening star. A small bug overhears his wish and takes him on a journey of discovery where Tooter learns the value of perspective, perseverance, and patience. And when Fox tries to turn Tooter into a midnight snack, Tooter discovers that his new friend packs a powerful stinky punch of his own
