When a kangaroo hops onto a farm and announces himself as a McGillycuddy the other farm animals ask him what he can do. Make milk? Grow wool? Lay eggs? Wake the farmer? McGillycuddy can do none of these things and after increasing sadness at each unsuccessful attempt he finally leaves the farm feeling like he can't do anything at all except bounce, hop, jump and kick.

But when a wolf shows up on the farm looking for a tasty treat, namely a duck, McGillycuddy comes to the rescue with his mighty kicking legs!

A good lesson that everyone is good at something.
