In a pasture in sunny southern Spain, while all the other young bulls are constantly play-fighting and butting heads with each other, a young bull named Ferdinand would rather sit down and smell flowers all day. When he grew up, although he became very strong and powerful, he would still rather sit and smell flowers all day.

One day, several men came along looking for bulls for the bullring in Madrid. At that very moment, Ferdinand sat on a flower being visited by a foraging bee, which immediately stings him, causing him to go off on a wild rampage of destruction, which leaves an impression on the scouts, who take him away to the Great Bullring in Madrid.

Once there, it seems that everyone in Madrid came to watch the fight between Ferdinand and the matador. Once in the ring Ferdinand finally shows up and everyone acts scared of him, someone in the audience throws down a bouquet of flowers, and he comes charging out everybody runs from him, including the matador, but he stops in the middle of the ring to smell the flowers and nothing the madator could do would provoke Ferdinand into fighting him. He became so furious that he even pulled his hair out. Eventually they had to take Ferdinand back to where he lived, and he could continue to just sit there and smell the flowers.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The ChristmasSpecial ''From All of Us to All of You'' (including ''Ferdinand'') is aired every Christmas Eve in Sweden since 1960, with ratings only rivalled by major sport events. When ''Ferdinand'' was pulled for one year, public outcry forced the channel to restore the film for the next year.
