A little chimpanzee needs a hug and searches the jungle for his mother. It repeats the word “hug” to elephants, snakes, lions, hippos and cheetahs, and their babies. Soon the unhappy chimpanzee is surrounded by the concerned animals. But, from the edge of the jungle, a chimpanzee comes swinging through the trees, shouting “BOBO!” The relieved mother gives the delighted chimpanzee an enormous hug. Soon all the animals are hugging each other.
