The three goats of different sizes are named Gala Gala. One day, they were on their way to graze on the hillside when they had to pass a bridge which housed a terrible mountain monster under it. The youngest Galagala first walked onto the bridge and awakened the mountain monster. The mountain monster wanted to eat him, but the little goat said: "The second goat is coming soon and he is bigger than me." The mountain monster thus lets him go. The second goat, Gala Gala, also escapes from the clutches of the mountain monster. But the third goat rushes bravely to conquer the mountain monster. The three goats eventually arrive to the hillside to eat peacefully and become too fat to make their way back!
