There is a frog,
There is a toad,
And he lives just down the road.

A Year With Frog and Toad is a children's musical, based on the Frog and Toad book series for young readers by Arnold Lobel. Both the series and the musical revolve around two best friends named Frog and Toad, who spend their time together drinking tea, taking walks, baking cookies, going swimming, and generally being best friends.

Frog is the more cheerful and upbeat of the two friends, whereas Toad is generally grumpy and very easily discouraged. Their adventures are accompanied by several other forest creatures (usually played by the same three actors).
