Nobi is sleeping in a log. Then, an elephant shakes the log to take Nobi out of it. The three elephants bully Nobi by using the mouse as a baseball. After Nobi is thrown, he lands inside Rafiki's rattle. Nobi tells Rafiki that he's tired of being a mouse and he wishes to fly like a bird, swim like a fish, and be as tall as a giraffe to get more respect. Rafiki replies that respect comes from within, but he grants Nobi the wish and turns the mouse tall with wings and a tail of a fish.
Nobi starts to fly but then runs into two vultures who make fun of him. Nobi tries to prove to the vultures that he can fly as well as them, but when the buzzards show the mouse one more trick, Nobi tries to do the same thing, but gets hit offscreen by a plane and then falls in the water. Nobi scares the fish underwater and starts playing baseball with an eel that provoked him, with the eel as a baseball. Rafiki then catches Nobi, reprimands him, and tells him to let the eel go.
Rafiki asks Nobi how it feels to be tall with wings and a tail of a fish. The mouse says that everything's okay, but then sees the three elephants from earlier shaking the log to get Nobi out of there. Nobi goes to the elephants, but the elephants start to bully the mouse by playing tackle football, which means that even though Nobi is different, he doesn't get respect. After Rafiki scares the elephants away, Nobi asks Rafiki to make him become a mouse again. After Rafiki does so and left, one of the elephants shows up to continue their game of baseball, but then Nobi stands up to the elephant and the elephant runs away. Nobi thanks Rafiki and the mandrill says, "You're welcome my friend. You're welcome."
This is the first "Rafiki Fables" episode, and the first episode to center around other characters than Timon and Pumbaa.
