Frog & Friends - The Dream - Netflix
One day, while Toad is asleep in bed, he has a dream in which he is on stage and wearing a costume. A voice from an unseen character presents Toad as the Greatest Toad in all the world with Frog as Toad's only audience. Toad does every act great (playing the piano, walking on a high wire, and dancing) and while he does these things and asks Frog if he can do them, Frog shrinks in size and admits he could not do them. Eventually, the dream becomes a nightmare when Toad's dancing act has made Frog shrink rapidly to even be seen or heard. Worried for his friend, Toad prevents the voice from announcing his next act and tries calling out for Frog, only for the dream to end with him spinning in the dark. Toad wakes up from his dream to see Frog in his house and, when they both play together outside, is very relieved that what he experienced was only a bad dream.
