The pigs, Pete and Paul, are eager to help Farmer Bill grow the best and biggest watermelons so he'll win at the annual Fruit and Vegetable Show, but their overzealous efforts to help the melons grow faster end up destroying the entire melon patch. Tractor Mac and friends teach Pete and Paul that with patience and care, they too can grow a prize melon.
Tractor Mac and his friends learn that some things, like prize-winning watermelons, are well worth waiting for. The Tractor Mac series is perfect for fans of Bob the Builder and Thomas the Tank Engine.
