While Fuzzy the Little Sheep is out playing with his friends, he falls and skins his knee. He searches for his mother, can't find her, and feels scared and alone. Fuzzy soon finds his mom, but then he is afraid to let her out of his sight. Fuzzy's mother has several ideas to help him cope with being away from her, which he practices, and eventually he is able to play comfortably with his friends and not be near her.
