Grumpy Bird wakes up in a terrible mood. Such a terrible mood that he refuses to eat, he refuses to play and even refuses to fly. So instead, Grumpy Bird walks. As he walks the farm he picks up a posse of his unsuspecting friends along the way. I say unsuspecting because the farm friends all fall in line expecting fun; nobody realizes Bird is stalking around in a bad mood. By the end of the walk, in spite of himself, Grumpy Bird isn't so grumpy any more. This one is an all-around winner, who can't relate to being grumpy???
