Giraffe and Bird squabble and get on each other's nerves. There's nothing the irrepressible Bird likes more than to have a laugh at the expense of his dignified friend, and one thirsty day at the water hole, he gets his chance. Giraffe's awkward attempt to reach the water without getting his hooves wet raises a snicker from a flamingo, a chortle from a zebra and a howl from a hippo. Soon everyone is laughing—especially Bird. In fact, Bird is having a ball until he realizes that his mortified friend has left the water hole without so much as a sip. Now Bird is ashamed. How will he get Giraffe back?
