Spud is a potato who loves his couch. He watches TV all day and never participates in extracurricular activities with his family or friends. One day the TV breaks and Spud can no longer watch his shows. He is forced to get off the couch and walk outside where he is invited by several other young potatoes to join him for a game of baseball. He is hesitant but agrees and they teach him how to play. He quickly learns how enjoyable playing outside and being active is and learns a valuable lesson that TV can wait and it is much better to lead an active lifestyle.
