3. Cat Walking; Crab Playing (Animated)

The two "Just So" stories in the program include: Why the Cat is Walking by Himself - Once the Dog, the Horse, the Cow, the Sheep, the Pig, and the Cat were all wild creatures, until a clever woman figured a way to tame all the animals, except the cat that walks by himself. Still there were things like warm milk and a warm fire that the cat wanted to enjoy and here we learn how the clever cat got what he wanted and still kept his independence. How the Crab Played With the Sea - In the beginning the Eldest Magician gave all the animals their games to play, all but one great Crab, who played with the sea and caused problems for Man. The Eldest Magician used his magic to make the crab small and able to live and hide in the ocean an on land; also he used the moon to put the waters twice a day, what we now call tides. 00/10DE Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
