Two children and a variety of animals insist on accompanying Mr. Gumpy on a boat trip - each request is a differently worded variation on the same basic theme. Despite his warnings to them not to get up to their usual tricks, the inevitable happens and they all fall in the water, but the day ends happily around the tea table.
