Rhinoceros has a magnificent horn, which all the animals admire. All, that is, except Hippo, who is jealous of Rhino's horn, and wants one of her own. While Rhino is asleep, Hippo steals her horn and, after some mishaps, sets it on her snout. But Hippo quickly discovers that wearing a large and heavy horn brings more problems than rewards. Soon all the animals are telling her that a rhino horn belongs on a rhinoceros. Hippo starts to doubt her decision, and when she comes face to face with the compassionate Rhino, Hippo understands that there is no room in the world for jealousy. Hippo returns the horn to its rightful owner and slips quietly into the deep water as Rhino and the rest of the animals gather at the river's edge for their evening drink.
