Five foolish members of the Elephant Scholars of the World heatedly argue the nature of the elephant, which they have never seen. In a hilarious scramble, they head for India to prove their arguments. At an ancient temple where, helped by a mischievous parrot, a kindly native peddler and his son, they go from bewilderment and befuddlement to a chaotic comic climax which puts a delightful new ending to a favorite old legend. A musical score by James Hitt includes an opportunity for dances by the jungle animals.
