Wolle and Pferd are reading the fairytale "Rapunzel". Pferd asks Wolle if he is willing to climb Pferd's hair to visit him in a tower, and Wolle thinks it could be fun to try out. Pferd also suggests that the prince could bring Rapunzel a delicious carrot. Wolle finds a carrot on the ground and agrees to do it, but Pferd is so happy to see the carrot that he attempts to eat it right away. Wolle stops him and says that they have to follow the fairytale. Wolle sends Pferd up on the top of Samson's cave.
Prince Wolle asks Rapunzel to let down her hair so that he can climb up with a carrot for her. However, Rapunzel doesn't have much hair to throw down and Wolle realizes that they have forgotten something important.
Wolle suggests that Pferd could wear a wig so he can get long hair. However, Pferd doesn't know where to get a wig. Wolle tells him to go and ask Ella while he waits at the mountain. Wolle thinks that the mountain looks a bit high but is sure that he will be able to go up there once Rapunzel arrives with her long hair. Then Pferd yells from the mountain top that he is ready again and that climbing so high has made him really hungry. Wolle then starts by asking for Rapunzel's hair and the entire wig falls on him.
Pferd is sure that he did what he was supposed to do, after all Wolle said "Rapunzel, let down your hair". Wolle tells him that if he dropped all the hair down he can't climb it, then Pferd realizes the mistake. Wolle tells him to go up again and this time only to let down some of the hair.
Pferd is ready again, and Wolle asks for the hair again. This time Pferd does the right thing and Wolle starts to climb. However, just before Wolle reaches the top he pulls Pferd down from the mountain. Wolle doesn't know how to give Pferd the carrot now. But Pferd tells him that it worked, they are together and he has the carrot.
