Hippo and Pig are neighbours as well as great friends. Then one day, Hippo decides to do a good deed for Pig, and cuts down the hedge between them so that they can see into each other’s houses. Hippo is disgusted on seeing his neighbour prancing around in a tutu, while Pig is equally revolted by the sight of Hippo chewing his toenails. Can they ever be friends again? This is the tale of how even good friends need their privacy.
