Doctor Dolittle lives with his animal friends in the little English town of Puddleby-on-Marsh. One day an African monkey seeks out the world-famous good doctor. When Doctor Dolittle learns that a mysterious disease is afflicting the monkeys of Africa, he sets off on a musical adventure to come to the animals? aid.
