George is very excited about spring and he wants his friend Hundley the dog to have spring fever. However, little Hundley resists getting spring fever despite all the blooming flowers, baby animals and fun canoe rides. Hundley gets lost in the country and George has to go find him. In his search for Hundley, George manages to accidentally launch a hot air balloon and has to be rescued.
