Mole and Rat visit Toad Hall, where Toad is caught up in his latest enthusiasm: his new caravan. Toad has already stocked the wagon for an adventure and insists that Rat and Mole accompany him. After harnessing the reluctant horse, the friends set off. During the journey, Toad leaves most of the real work to Rat and Mole. Suddenly, their peaceful journey is interrupted by a motorcar that runs the cart off the road. Toad is not angry, though. He is in a happy trance because he has discovered a new obsession: to own a car.
