"Why do the humans hate us so much?" This is the question Limpy asks everyone he can find.  Even though his relatives assure him that humans don't hate them, it's hard to believe that when night after night you see them being squished into the pavement by the cars and trucks passing by.  Humans just seem to go out of their way to turn the cane toads into stacks.  When Limpy goes in search for answers, he finds the world of the humans is not what he imagined.  He tries everything to blend in from disguising himself in a pair of underpants to trying to become a mascot for the Games.  Join Limpy as he experiences Toad Rage.
