Premise[edit | edit source]

After Cedric is derided by his friends for not being assertive or confident enough, Cyril ships him off to Improve University, and he comes back a changed aardvark. Eventually, nobody can stand the "new and improved" Cedric. It is up to Cyril and the Raccoons to change Cedric back to his old self.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Cedric, lacking in confidence, is in need of an attitude adjustment. Thus, Cyril, sends him to Improve U. in hopes that he will become more assertive. Upon his return, though, we see that he has changed markedly. His friends wonder if this is a good thing or not. The new Cedric is certainly different to say the least. Even Cyril agitates over the Frankenstein he's created. Thus, he and the Raccoons team up to curb the problem.

Finally, Cyril and the Raccoons convince Cedric to go on a camping trip and at long last, the pernicious book is wrested from his grasp. Thus, we see the old Cedric return and everyone's better for it.
