Plot Summary

Verne the Turtle becomes terribly ill with the turtle flu and the other forest critter friends are visiting him and RJ's right by his death bed. Right before he passes away, he tells them that there's another turtle that can take his place and his name's Anthony. He passes away right after he tells him that he knows they'll do just the right thing to help everybody out and kill off Vincent the Bear for good. The forest critters are now giving Verne a closed casket funeral and burial ceremony right by the river side and his turtle shell's staying behind in his memories.
