Lambert the Sheepish Lion

The stork arrives to deliver lambs to the sheep herd, but mistakenly delivers a lion cub to a lonely ewe, in a scene reminiscent of 'Dumbo'. Lambert however is bullied and teased by all the lambs as they grow up, because he lacks confidence and isn't a real sheep. This sad state of affairs continues even when he's grown up - until the flock and his mother are attacked by a wolf.
