Synopsis: When a pair of googly-eyed tortoises find a 10-gallon hat—which they both agree would look good on either of them—they decide to leave it be rather than risk inequity between them. However, it becomes obvious that one of the tortoises still very much covets the hat. In a charming turn, the conflict is resolved through empathy and the bonds of friendship.
