* PollyWantsAMicrophone: [[AmplifiedAnimalAptitude Although ''all'' animals are implied to be sapient]], Polynesia is a parrot who can understand and speak fluent English (among other languages). She's fluent in English because the Doctor taught it to her, enabling her to return the favor by teaching him animal languages.

John Dolittle is a doctor living in the small village, Puddleby[[hottip:*: short for Puddleby-on-the-Marsh]]. He is a highly competent and well-respected physician, but he is also somewhat of an animal hoarder, which drives away almost all of the paying human customers. The only exception is the Cat's-meat-man (a man who sells meat for pets to eat, not a man who sells the meat of cats) who's never had any problem with animals. John Doolittle even drives his own spinster sister away when he adopts a crocodile, and he's left penniless with no one to take care of his house or manage his money.
