It's Grandpa's birthday! Froggie can't wait to share his birthday song with everyone gathered at the party. In a flurry of excitement, he builds a set, makes a costume and hands out programs. Then he sings his heart out—Bah-rum-tah-rum!—to great applause. What a party! But the time comes when everyone's tired, everyone's ready to say goodnight, everyone wants to go home—except Froggie. How can he possibly cope with the letdown after the celebration comes to an end, as all good things must?
