It's Storytime! Paco & Camelia

Paco is a parrot who lives in Florence with Camelia, his beloved owner who runs the pet store "Paws to the Sky". Here you will meet Anteus the wise cat, Narcisa the vain ferret, Hypnotica the sorceress snake, Patchiulo the always-hungry python, and many others. When Camelia is away, her precious pets get into strange and hilarious adventures.
