The Movers, a friendly moving company operated by Uncle Charles and Theo, is well known for its efficient, error–free service. One day, as the pair get ready to start their delivery route, the two load parcels to be delivered into their truck—including one particularly large box. As they're driving, a gorilla suddenly emerges from the box and starts making a total mess of the other parcels! How will the pair keep their promise of delivering all of that day's packages— and, more importantly, will The Movers manage to deliver their new friend?
