It's a brand new day and Harriett Elizabeth Cow has a very large present to give to Donkey Hodie and her friends. When Donkey Hodie wants to open it right away, Harriett Elizabeth Cow reminds her that she must wait for everyone else to arrive.

When Harriett leaves to gather the others, Duck Duck arrives just in time to interrupt Donkey Hodie as she's about to open the present. Duck Duck is equally excited, but they decide that waiting for Purple Panda and Bob Dog is the right thing to do. To help them stay strong as they wait, Donkey and Duck Duck put on their super hero costumes. Duck Duck even tries magic to make the present disapper but accidentally turns Donkey Hodie into a mouse, a fish, and a trombone.

Bob Dog arrives bursting with excitement and struggles to wait, as well. To pass the time, the friends try to imagine what might be inside the present. When Purple Panda arrives, it's time to open the present!

Inside the box, Donkey Hodie and her friends find Harriett's newest invention -- a Super Duper Big Time Fun Machine -- which only works when all four are seated and ready to go. Everyone takes their place and enjoys a ride on the Fun Machine!
