Scene Samson has received a nice red balloon from Ella, and Finchen thinks that the balloon looks great. Samson proudly shows Finchen what you can do with a balloon. Pferd comes and mistakes the balloon for a nice tomato, but Samson moves the balloon away just before Pferd attempts to eat it. Pferd thinks it's a shame that the balloon is not a tomato. Samson continues his demonstration of what you can do with a balloon, but he ends up loosing the balloon and it flies away.
Scene Pferd is impressed with the way it flies away. Samson attempts to jump up and catch it, and Finchen attempts to get the balloon back while calling it. Finchen attempts to comfort Samson, who is sad because he lost his balloon. Pferd gets an idea and rushes away. The idea is to buy a new balloon for Samson, but there aren't any balloons at Nils' shop. So instead, Pferd gives Samson a red apple. Samson thanks Pferd because the apple is as red as the balloon, but he would still like the balloon back since it was fun to have. Pferd gets another idea and rushes off again.
Scene Pferd returns dressed up like a clown in order to entertain Samson. Samson thanks Pferd again but he still misses the balloon. Pferd gets another idea and this time he returns with a guitar and tells them that he knows that if you lose something you cared about you can't replace it, but you can say farewell to it with your good friends. They then sing a song about saying goodbye to something you lost.
Scene Samson feels a lot better after the song. He will not forget the balloon but he still has both of his friends and a red apple. Pferd asks Samson if he really needs the apple. Samson says no and tells Pferd he can have it. Pferd then says goodbye to the apple and eats it.
