The Adventures of Jolie and Her Best Friends Hamilton and Bacorama – Synopsis
Jolie and her two best friends, Hamilton and Bacorama, who just happen to be pigs, go on a camping adventure with Nana to see their friends Squeak and Freddie Squirrel. During their trip, they get to visit Mrs. Hoot’s Learning Academy where the animal children go to school to learn how to live in the forest. Squeak meets a new squirrel friend named Pip and spends all her time with her and brags about all the great things that Pip can do. Freddie gets jealous that Squeak isn’t playing with him and says that Pip isn’t special and that they shouldn’t play with her because she is a black squirrel. Squeak’s feelings get hurt and Freddie runs away. Jolie, Hamilton, and Bacorama go looking for him. When they find him, they help him to see that his feelings are from jealousy and not because Pip is different and that you always have room for more than one friend.
