Misery Moo is about a "miserable old cow" who cannot be cheered up despite all of the little lamb's efforts. He tries parties, acrobats and shows misery moo the joys of Christmas, but to no avail. This big wide world is too sad for the cow and her smile keeps on fading. Eventually the lamb can’t take anymore and vows to never see his miserable friend again! But without friendship, love and the happy face of the little Lamb, the world seems even glummer to the cow. Eventually, the friends are reunited and happiness restored with “the biggest, sunniest smile in the whole, wide, wonderful world".
