It has been raining hard, and Bob returns to the Yard with a mud-splattered Scoop and Muck. He prepares to wash them down, something Muck dreads as he loves being mucky. But he is saved when Bob gets a call to say that Travis is stuck in the mud - Muck is the only one who can pull him out, since he has caterpillar treads. Bob sets off with Muck and Dizzy. Once Travis is rescued, Bob goes back to Farmer Pickles's for a glass of home-made apple juice. Spud appears and starts a mud-pie fight with Muck and Dizzy. When Bob returns they are all covered in mud, so Bob takes them back to the farm for a "surprise" - a good soapy wash. Spud is even more horrified than Muck, and as he tries to flee, he slips and falls headlong in the mud.
