Daddy Elephant isn’t scared of anything, each attempt by Little Patrick to frighten Daddy Elephant goes wrong. Little Patrick is scared of many things, so Daddy Elephant is the greatest and strongest for him! However, one day Cornelius J. Parker arrives at the door to check on their fridge and its contents. Daddy Elephant is terribly scared of mice! And as he hides away now, Cornelius and his friends have an easy job with it.
The mice do not only take away the fridge but also the TV set, the telephone, the fish, the biscuits, the lamps and even Little Patrick’s toys! Finally, they also lift the sofa onto which poor Daddy Elephant has fled. At the top of his voice Little Patrick cries “Stop“, but, unfortunately, he is still a small elephant. At the last moment his mother comes in at the door and then the mice experience a surprise as big as an elephant!
