In a vast natural reserve lost in the middle of the untamed wilderness, there is a small haven of human civilization: the forest ranger’s house. In the eyes of the animals for 60 miles around, it’s El Dorado. Because he is (from his point of view) the most evolved animal on earth, the Bear Grizzy feels it’s only natural that the ranger’s house becomes his territory as soon as its owner is away. In here, he can enjoy all the modern conveniences that seem to have been custom designed especially for him.
No other animal dares to contest this Bear Privilege except the most inoffensive, stupid and ridiculous mammal family that exists: The Lemmings- who also move into the house as soon as the ranger is gone. The possibilities for having fun there are so plentiful! Thus, Grizzy and the Lemmings lead a merciless battle over the forest ranger’s house in an atmosphere of total madness, where the two adversaries constantly try to out-do each other with nasty tricks!
