Here comes Duck in his truck, the wonderful new character soon to be the focus of a whole new series. But watch out for that rock Duck…too late! Duck’s truck is stuck in the muck! The truck is well and truly stuck, but luckily help is at hand in the form of a Frog. When the Frog and the Duck fail to eject the truck, they enlist the help of a Sheep who just happens to be passing by in his green jeep. But even the might of the sheep can’t move the truck.
Fortunately, there is a nearby lake and at this very moment a clever goat floats by relaxing in his boat. He devises a cunning plan which does indeed set the truck free…but with unexpected and hilarious consequences.
