The Great Race of Clearwater Wood - The True Story of the Tortoise & the Hare by Peter Story
This show deftly explores issues of class and race with the Hares as the haves and the Tortoises as the have-nots. Best friends Kit, the Hare, and Shelly, the Tortoise, are gearing up for the Great Race, the must-see annual event of their home — Clearwater Wood.
Kit, son of the mayor and favorite to win, is less than enthused about the race. Shelly is obsessed with running but is unable to compete due to the race being a “hares-only” event. After Shelly discovers that, ages ago, the Great Race used to be open to animals of all kinds, he uncovers a loophole that allows him to enter the race. Not wanting his friend to embarrass himself, Kit tries to talk Shelly out of running in a race where he will surely be destroyed. But Shelly’s passion and hopefulness is too strong and a rift is soon driven into their best-buds bond. As Kit feels the pressure to beat Shelly and make his family proud, Shelly is out to prove — once and for all — that the Great Race should be a race for every creature.
