"The Swim of Things" is the 15th episode of Anne of Green Gables: The Animated Series.


It's swimming time at the pond and everybody is having fun; everybody, that is, except Felix. Felix is a poor swimmer and because of this he is discouraged and disheartened. Like everybody else, Anne is impatient with her friend's limitations. However, when an injury sidelines her, Felix helps her with her exercises. Soon the two unlikely friends are hard at work, helping one another train.
