What to expect

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.
