These are the Pygg brothers: James, Marvin, and Lester. And when they get a visit from a wolf named Wilfong, what you think is going to happen doesnt. And what you think couldnt possibly happen actually might. But one thing that will definitely happen is that everyone is going to learn how to make wolf pieand you know what the main ingredient in that is, right? (Its probably not what youre thinking.)
