Tough Gruff and Huff Gruff complain about the grass they are dining on. Rough Gruff tells them of a field of the richest and greenest grass. But there is a catch. In order to get there, the goats must cross a bridge rumored to be inhabited by a foul-tempered troll. Egged on by the others, Huff Gruff, the smallest, hesitantly begins to cross the bridge. Huff chickens out and runs back to Rough and Tough with exaggerated tales of woe. Rough Gruff, the middle goat, next tries to make it across the fated bridge. The supposed troll assures the nervous goat that there is no threat, but this only scares away Rough. Tough Gruff, the biggest goat, steps onto the bridge. Tough discovers that the source of their anxiety is not a troll at all, but a harmless little frog. The hungry goats feast, while the real troll returns to its hideout and the frog flees with fright. The three goats soon discover that the grass is not greener on the other side and long for home. Confident and cocky, they cross the bridge as the lights go down.
