Between about 2004 and 2007, shopping mall owners [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mills_Corporation Mills Corporation]] (now part of Simon Property Group) operated a children\'s club called Muggsy\'s Meadow. Its mascot was a cute beaver named Muggsy, and another forest animal represented the other ages: a purple spider named Lilly (the 0-4 \"Upsprouts\"), a raccoon named Carl (5-8 year old \"Critters\"), and a white opossum named Tred for the 9-12 year old \"Tall Timber\". One of the tie-ins was a DVD called \'\'Muggsy\'s Meadow\'\', meant to teach young children about being aware of strangers. It starts with Muggsy criticizing Tred and Carl for mooching food from humans that they don\'t know. Later, Muggsy is captured by two rednecks who want to use him in an exhibit at a roadside attraction. Carl, Tred and Lilly steal a logging truck to chase after him, and even put out a warning on the CB radio to have others seek the beaver, but soon crash the truck. They then have to cross an eight-lane highway, and eventually find their way to the park. There, Muggsy is trapped in the exhibit, where the owners pretty much torment him — even making him jump through flaming rings while swimming. At the end, Muggsy\'s friends get him home… or so they think. They\'ve actually taken home a plush of him. After they inadvertently destroy the plush, the real Muggsy finds his way home, thanking the police officer who found him.

* TooSmartForStrangers: Subverted. Although the plot does briefly stop for Muggsy to give a lesson on strangers (complete with the \"bad touch\" kind of stuff), the lesson also says that some strangers (e.g., authority figures) are more trustworthy.
