Donkey Hodie has promised Grampy Hodie that she will take his pet elephant, Gregory for a walk. Grampy leaves for juggling team practice and Donkey heads to the backyard to find Gregory. She quickly finds that convincing the elephant to go for a walk may be difficult. She tries pushing him and even attempts to use Purple Panda's skateboard to move Gregory.

Duck Duck suggests using a large peanut as motivation and Bob Dog tries getting Gregory to chase a ball but neither attempt is successful. A makeshift catapult launches Donkey into a tree where Clyde the Cloud sings a song to help her with her frustration.

Using Clyde's suggestions for managing her frustration, Donkey is calm enough to find that Gregory likes music. When he hears music on the radio, he becomes excited and begins to walk.

Grampy returns from juggling team practice and mentions his frustration over the challenge of juggling three coconuts. Donkey encourages him to use the strategies she learned from Clyde the Cloud and Grampy is able to concentrate enough to successfully perform the trick.
