Mudgy & Millie

Mudgy Moose and Millie Mouse play a game of hide-and-seek. Millie hides while Mudgy searches for her along the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene. Children join in the fun as Mudgy wanders along the lake, across town, and through the park in his quest to find Millie, who was hiding close by all the time.
