Kermit and Fozzie take a train ride to visit Kermit's uncle in Greenville Junction. However, Fozzie's poor luggage management and dependence on his stuffed teddy bear (temporarily tumbled loose) cause the pair to miss their stop. The friendly conductor who had been asked to look after them evidently got off at Greenville Junction. Dismounting the train in an unfamiliar location, the fates further conspire when collect calls placed to their homes reveal a temporary absence of mothers. Even the call placed to Kermit's Uncle McDermott merely results in continuous ringing, each ring no doubt further dashing the wayward boys' hopes.

Kermit and Fozzie wander the now foreboding train station and evade a seemingly friendly but potentially predatory stranger (per Mrs. Frog's instructions). The bespectacled, mysterious man vanishes once the tads (one almost literally) reach the ticket counter. The friendly ticket lady summons a policeman, contact is made with Mrs. Frog, and Uncle McDermott finally arrives (in an incredibly green automobile). Fozzie, feeling guilty for their wanderings, decides that Teddy should not be allowed to travel abroad with them next time.
