"Based on cowboy tales Mann created for his sons when they were young, and which are now favorites of his grandchildren," press notes state, "Fat Horse and Slim follows the adventures of a cowboy from Odessa, Texas, who lives in the desert with his loyal Talking Horse. They meet characters from many cultures and teach how to overcome any obstacle. Eating only Coconuts, Cactus and Palm Leaves, the colorful pair joyfully discover ‘Chinese’ vegetables from another world, rescue circus animals, and take a trip to the snowy mountains—that taste like Ice Cream."
