Timothy wants very much to be a big strong cat. So he exercises and thinks strong thoughts. This really isn't working though. When his mother notices that all of the exercising is ruining his favorite pajamas she asks Timothy to get rid of the old ones and she'll get new ones. Timothy does not like this idea at all. These are his favorite pajamas! Can't his mom just fix them? So she learns how to sew and she sews them super strong, puts on some strong patches and some really red buttons. The pajamas are now Timothy's strong pajamas.

In these new super strong pajamas, Timothy becomes a hero! He saves an elephant lady who's falling off a cliff, a princess, a cat out of a tree, among many others. At the end of the day, on his way home, he encounters a bear that is lost, can't find the forest to hibernate and is too tired to continue looking. As his last act of heroism for the day, Timothy carries the bear to the forest. As he prepares to leave the bear to hibernate, he notices that his monkey toy is missing. Suddenly he realizes the monkey is trapped underneath the giant sleeping bear. His attempts to pull him out only result in ripping his super strong pajamas. So now his pajamas are no longer strong. What will he do?

The elephant lady he rescued earlier in the day finds him and sees his predicament. She puts out a distress call and all of the creatures that Timothy helped that day come to his rescue. With everyone's help, Timothy is able to get the monkey free. Yea!
