Summary

Donkey Hodie is having a hard time keeping up with the demands of his garden -- that is until Harriett Elizabeth Cow arrives and offers her assistance. 

Everyone in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe is excited about their new neighbor in Some Place Else as Harriett is warmly welcomed.

As you might expect, Lady Elaine Fairchilde is jealous of the attention being given to Harriett Cow and she sets out to sabotage her welcome party.

At the party in Some Place Else, cake is about to be served when it is soaked with milk seemingly poured from the sky by a mysterious purple cow. As the neighbors discuss the mishap, Henrietta Pussycat suggests that the cow seemed to disappear like magic -- boomerang magic.

Arriving at the Museum-Go-Round to question Lady Elaine, a purple cow costume is discovered. Daniel, X, and Henrietta explain to Lady Elaine that she does not need to be a cow for them to like her. They like her just as much as Harriett Elizabeth Cow -- just for different reasons.

The next morning Lady Elaine is playing her accordion when Grandpere passes by on his way to visit Some Place Else. Tagging along with her instrument, Lady Elaine sets out to impress Harriett with her talents.

Much to Lady Elaine's surprise, Harriett Cow is not jealous of Lady Elaine. Instead, she reveals that she is a big fan of the accordion and has a great appreciation for Lady Elaine's talent.

With a mutual respect established, Lady elaine and Harriett Elizabeth Cow stroll off together saying "It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood."
