One night, Mr Doodle, the rooster, is woken up by the sounds of car hooters. When he discovers that the city is expanding rapidly - right up against the fence of the peaceful farm that is his home - he is very upset. He decides to leave the farm and look for another, quieter one. But Mr Doodle finds that he can't simply fly off and leave behind the life that he knows. Year after year, it's been his duty to wake all the animals and people on the farm, and it's his responsibility to find someone to take over his job. So after many amusing and frustrating auditions, Mr Doodle finally finds the perfect replacement.
