Melody is playing in the garden with the garden sprinkler, but her feet get cold and muddy. Mum suggests a game of elephants instead. When they go inside, mum suggests a piece of music that makes her think of a muddy elephant. She has chosen Fanfare for the Common Man composed by Aaron Copland.
Melody imagines she is a jungle explorer who has found a baby elephant playing in the mud. Other animals join the elephant, and they get splashed with mud, but they soon disappear. The baby elephant is disappointed to find himself alone, but then Melody the jungle explorer finds his friends splashing in the waterfall having a great time. After Melody has finished listening to the music, it's time for her to get cleaned up too.
