Story

They can use Duggee’s tractor. The animals pop out to watch but the tractor breaks down. The Squirrels and the animals decide to pick more food while they wait for Duggee to fix the tractor. Horse helps Roly and Tag with the carrots, potatoes, onions and a pumpkin which fly into the air and are caught by Mole, the Rabbits, Frog and Worm. Ethel uses her truck to pick tomatoes which she sends into the waiting baskets of the birds. Betty supervises them as they drop the tomatoes into a waiting crate. The Rabbits use an old fashioned contraption to harvest potatoes which they bounce of a sheep and into a crate carried by a cow. Norrie watches the cow unload the potatoes to a larger crate. Betty continues supervising the collection of the tomatoes, this time the ants deliver them. The woodpeckers help Roly and Tag with the apples. The chickens form a ladder to pick berries and Happy collects strawberries using Hedgeley the Hedgehog. For the pumpkins, they come up with a fancy contraption. Norrie rides Horse who pulls a harvester where the chickens turn wheels and pick pumpkins. They throw them up to Happy and Mole who put them on the back of sheep who are on a wheel which is being continuously turned by Cow. As the sheep reach the far side of the wheel, Ethel the elephant collects the pumpkins and bounces them back to Tag and Roly who put them in a crate. They then put the crate on a conveyer belt which is being turned by three mice. The crates pass down a ramp onto the waiting ant troops who carry them to Betty’s pile of harvested food. She checks them off on her clipboard, just as Duggee finishes fixing his tractor.
