With his newfound friends, Mumble goes in search of the true cause of the famine.
In this comedy – drama musical film, Grammy Award-winning American actor and comedian, Robin Williams lends his voice to Ramon, the unofficial leader of the amigos who is distinguished by his orange crest and stout stature.
