One day Elmer and his friends meet a stranger, called Kangaroo, and he's got a problem. He can bounce, but he can't jump. He's been practising secretly for the jumping competition but he just keeps falling over. Lion is confused - is there a difference between a bounce and a jump? Elmer explains that Kangaroo thinks there is, he thinks a jump is much more difficult and that's why he can't do it. But with a little encouragement from Elmer, Kangaroo wins the jumping competition and turns himself from a stranger into a friend.
