Ferdinand the Bull is a timeless tale of a loveable bull who is not like his typical counterparts. He has no interest in fighting, stomping his fighting, or running around. He would much rather find some flowers to smell or a meadow to lay in. Little does he know that a bee sting might determine his fate, whether he wants to be in a bullfight or not.
