We know these animals are up to mischief. After all, there’s a Buffalo who becomes a Fluffalo. Then again, there’s an Elephant transformed to a Balletphant. While they look joyful, it’s obvious that Bumblebee Grumblebee is not very happy. We look carefully to see what’s happened to change his mood!
