The unlikely pairing of Hugg, a messy yeti, and Bugg, a flea that feels the cold, shows the wonder of teamwork in the Himalayas. The hairy snowman keeps the flea warm. The flea keeps his personal, living rug neat and tidy.
A trip down the mountain for food and the discovery of a comb test their friendship. But, a run-in with rude leopards and a threat to their home, help Hugg ‘n Bugg see sense.
