THAT'S WHAT LEPRECHAUNS DO SUMMARY

Three leprechauns, Art, Boo, and Col, notice that rain clouds are making their way across the sky. They have an important leprechaun duty to complete so they begin to pack up their things and head out. While they agree that they don’t engage in mischief along they way, they find themselves causing some trouble. They paint a cow’s hooves red, tie a man’s pants together, and put a tennis ball inside a hens nest. 

 

As the rainbow makes its way across the sky, the leprechauns realize they must make it to the end of the rainbow before it’s too late. When they get there, the three leprechauns dig up their pot of gold and place it at the end of the rainbow. 

 

Although they wait for a while, by the time the sky clears no one has come to find the pot of gold. Art, Boo, and Col put away the pot and head out to find more mischief.
