Arlo (voice of Michael J. Woodard), is an alligator boy who drifts from the New York City sewers to the near New Orleans, and grows up in the swamp with his adopted Mom Edmee (Annie Potts). When he discovers his true origins when he’s a teen, he sets out for NYC to find his father. Along the way he gathers an odd group of fellow travelers, and a couple enemies who want to exploit him. The journey is the thing, as Arlo is encamped with other oddballs, including a tiny Tony (Tony Hale), a Tiger Girl, a gay fur ball, a fish with legs and Big Bertie (Mary Lambert).
