2. Whale; Leopard; Camel (Animated)

The three "Just So" stories in the program include: How the Whale Got His Throat - Once upon a time there was a whale who ate up all the fishes in the ocean, except for one small, but clever, Stute Fish, who convinced the whale not to eat him but to swallow a shipwrecked Mariner, who had nothing on but a pair of blue canvas breeches and a pair of suspenders. But this Mariner too was clever and using his wits, and suspenders, prevented the whale from eating him or anything else but small, small fishes. How the Leopard Got His Spots - Once, long ago, the zebra and the giraffe used camouflage to hide from the Leopard, who had no spots, and a light-skinned Ethiopian hunter; however, Baviaan the baboon suggested the Ethiopian change his skin to black and the Leopard to have spots, and they've never changed them since. How the Camel Got His Hump - Once, when the world was all new, the Camel didn't want to help the other animals work, and when asked to all he would say is "humph." When the Djinn learned the lazy Camel hadn't worked for three day, he gave the creature its own hump so it could work for three days without eating. 00/10DE Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
