Rowlf is depressed because he doesn't have a brother. He recites a poem about brothers to Jimmy Dean (inspired by Howard Johnson's "M-O-T-H-E-R (A Word That Means the World to Me)"). Jimmy offers to be Rowlf's brother, but he hasn't got a dog mouth, nose or tail (though Rowlf jokes that his ears are just as big).
Jimmy then surprises Rowlf with a puppy dog, Robert, who can be his brother. Upon inspection, Rowlf discovers the puppy is actually a "Roberta." He ultimately decides he doesn't need a brother, as long as he has a pal like Jimmy. He wants to keep Roberta as a pet and sings "Let's Be Buddies" to her.
