The children talk about Grampu and how friendly he is. This inspires them to create a holiday in Grampu’s honor called "Grampu Day". They tell Grampu about it and and they tell him that they will make him a statue, make him special food, and give him a special present. Oobi goes off to create the statue using Grampu as a model. Oobi finishes it, but it looks nothing like Grampu. Half-heartedly, Grampu tells him that it looks lovely, and he gets into the same pose as the statue.

Uma enters her room in search of a present but all she finds is dirt. Meanwhile, Kako is in the kitchen making Grampu a special dish. At first, he wants to give him tuna, which Grampu likes. He then decides to combine it with jelly, which Grampu loves. He finds something's missing, so he adds hot sauce, which he loves. He gives the food to Grampu, who is excited to try it. However, one bite makes him gasp for air. Grampu has trouble swallowing it, due to the taste of the hot sauce. Grampu tries not to hurt Kako’s feelings by pretending to enjoy it.

Uma is still searching for a present. She enters bathroom, but can only find a used tube of toothpaste. The children gather in the living room to celebrate, where Uma tells them that she has had no luck finding a present. Oobi gets an idea and whispers it to Uma. She agrees with his plan and sings a special song to Grampu. The children hug Grampu, who thanks them.

Later, Oobi and Kako find a pile of leftover clay. Oobi gets the idea to play a guess game with it. He creates a statue of Kako and invites the viewers to guess what it is.
