A slightly purpley-pink Mr. Grumble

Mr. Grumble complains about everything - The start of a new day, the countryside and even parties. One day he met the wizard both at his afternoon walk and Little Miss Fun's party, and the grumbling person was turned into a pig, which made everyone laugh at the party. After he learnt his lesson, he wasn't grumbling anymore, he was smiling!
