Jungledyret Hugo

Hugo is a rare animal – possibly the last of his kind – who enjoys a carefree existence in the jungle with his monkey friends Zig and Zag; however, his lazy, idyllic lifestyle is about to change forever. He is captured by film producer Conrad Cupmann, whose star and wife: the vain Izabella Dehavalot, wants a cute animal to co-star in her next picture. Escaping, Hugo ends up in a Banana plantation and is accidentally shipped to Denmark. Befriending the ship’s cook Meatball Charlie, he arrives in Copenhagen, where Charlie entrusts him to the city zoo. Escaping there when the millionaire tries to recapture him, Hugo finds himself lost in the alien world of the urban jungle. Hugo needs a friend and finds one in the form of Rita, a young and streetwise vixen who he first met at the zoo.
