Plot Edit

The episode begins when Bitzer and the Farmer are shown. The Farmer is eating his breakfast while Bitzer is standing. Bitzer turns on the music and the Flock dance to this tune. But just as the Flock dance, the Farmer sees but he notices the flock eating and Bitzer stops the music. As the Farmer leaves, Bitzer turn on the music again and the sheep dance to this again. However, something happens, and the large mole appears, breaking Bitzer music radio, and he falls. Shaun is shocked by this and tries to get rid of the mole. But things get worse when Shaun uses the fishing reel and gets taken and is flung into the pigsty. When he tries to go out, the pigs start to beat him up, flinging him out into the ground, then the mother mole takes the mole back to the hole. Bitzer finally fixes it and plays the music, which caused the Flock to dance again.
