Idioms are everywhere in this hilarious first case of the Gumshoe Zoo detective agency as they attempt to solve Mr. Hound's mystery. Mr. Hound's shop has encountered some serious monkey business: Who has broken his window? And why? Luckily, the intrepid Gumshoe Zoo has been chomping at the bit to take on their first case. When Mr. Hound hires them to investigate, they hoof it to his shop. And once they get sleuthing, wild horses couldn't drag them away from the scent of a clue. But is it all just a dog and pony show to distract them from the truth? Join the team in this raucous adventure as they manage to keep a straight face, collar some suspects, and solve a mystery, all while avoiding beating a - never mind.
