Mother Goat goes to the market leaving her seven kids at home. A wolf tricks his way into the house and eats six of the kids before retiring to the woods.

Mother Goat then finds the wolf, opens his stomach, rescues the six kids, and places rocks in the wolf's stomach so that he still feels full. Mother Goat and her seven kids then live happily ever after.
