But goats in this time are intelligent and powered with technology. Every time Grey Wolf appears at the Goat Village, he thinks up a sneaky plan to catch the goats. Among the goat students, a smart young boy goat named "Pleasant" always finds a way to ruin "Grey Wolf's" plans and save the goats.However,he always ends up inflicting more injury to Grey Wolf a unneccessarilly. With the effort of "Pleasant" and his friends, Grey Wolf never eats any goats. In the end of each episode, "Grey Wolf" always promises to come back.The conflict between Grey Wolf and "Pleasant" never ends. Although Grey Wolf fails all the time, he never gives up. Although he is mean to the goats, he is a nice and timid husband to Red Wolf. Red Wolf is somewhat impatient and enjoys making her husband do all the work. She rarely tries to catch the goats herself, but always yells at her husband. She likes fashion and behaves like a modern female adult (though sometime her thoughts are a bit childish). She knows nothing but lamb and she loves to hit "Grey Wolf" with her frying pan. "Pleasant" and his friends are portrayed as playful primary school kids who don't like to study at all, each of whom has his/her own unique feature. "Beauty" is a pretty girl goat who is always worrying about her looks and esteem. "Fit" is a boy goat who likes to work out; he is in love with "Beauty". "Lazy" is a cute boy goat who likes to relax. There are many other child goats, as well as their teacher - an old goat referred to as the "Village Elder", who is a scientist and develops machines to protect their school. He is slower than a snail and uses a walking stick.
