Four animals go out on an adventure on the roundabout, the swing, and a seesaw. On getting there, they find an ant sitting on the swing. The other three suggest that they shoo the ant but all of them except Po the hippo refuses, but he decides to give the ant a push as he was the first one to arrive there, so he deserved. They begin their fun and while all of them have chances on the swing hippo is left out as he is too heavy and they leave him out. They have fun at every other place but leave Po out of each of them which make him feel low. It is funny since he is left with the aunt that he had not objected on being swung and in fact, was the one who did the favor for him.
