Meet Skippyjon Jones, Siamese cat who thinks he's one of the birds. Much to his mother's dismay, he enjoys sleeping in their nest, sharing their breakfast of worms, and bathing in Mrs. Doohiggy's birdbath. In frustration, Mrs. Jones locks him up in his room to ponder what it means to be a Siamese cat. Instead, Skippyjon discovers his alter ego, "El Skippito," a superhero Chihuahua. Clothed in a green cape and mask, he sets off into his closet and emerges in far, far away Mexico for a rip-roaring musical adventure.
