Bollersville has got everything a village needs: a fire department and police department, a town hall, a windmill, a water tower and a steamship. It is the ultimate average town, with the ultimate average citizens. If it weren’t for the Coati Gang, that is. The six preschoolers and their pet coati, with the help of their anything-but-average grandparents, are constantly inventing things and leaving chaos in their wake. When the Society for Consumer Research chooses Bollersville to test new products before they go on the market, the grownups are ecstatic. Afraid that the town will lose its testing privileges, the adults have all the grandparents put into an all old folk’s home. The Coati Gang however, sick of eating spinach corn flakes and horribly missing their grandparents, decide they’ve had enough and take things into their own hands (and paws). What’s the best way to turn average into exceptional? A world record of course! Their efforts are hilarious and turn the town upside-down.
