A young boy asks his mom this question, prompting animals around the world to ask their parents. They mostly hear about traits they had that were similar to their mom or dad, until a bullfrog asks his mom. Her answer is "Don't even ask". He hounds her until she pulls out a photograph of him as a tadpole. he refuses to believe he ever looked like that, vows never to trust his mom again, and hides under a rock. Then he hears his brothers and sisters singing a song about how all frogs develop from tadpoles and feels better.
