Big and Small Alike
The mice really want to see Mitzie Niegel, the mysterious mouse who lives on the Far Side — but they are not allowed to enter the gates. While Spiro thinks that they should be allowed to enter, Ben and Lil Mamma don't think it is safe. This sparks an important debate with the Junkyard animals — should everyone have the same rights and privileges, both big and small?
