Dolly asked her pet donkey, Yankee Doodle, to stay at home while she went to the market. Yankee Doodle was very naughty and after his mistress left, he went out for a little stroll. He crossed a fruit shop and took a mouthful of apples. The shopkeeper picked up a stick and shooed him away. After a while, Yankee Doodle passed by a park and started chewing the grass. The policeman, standing nearby saw him and chased after him. Just then, a band started playing Yankee Doodle’s favourite song, “Yankee Doodle
Dandy.” Yankee Doodle followed the band and merrily danced away. As the band passed the market, Dolly saw her donkey and decided to teach him a lesson. She requested the band to go past her house go that Yankee Doodle would keep following it and she could take him home Yankee Doodle happily danced along as he followed the band. As soon as they neared their house, Dolly caught her donkey and locked him in his stable And Yankee Doodle promised never to disobey his mistress again.
