Athletic Profile: Ferdinand the Bull, Wild Mavericks, Running Back, Linebacker, Defensive Back.
Ferdinand is a quiet, peaceful young bull who only wants to stop and smell the flowers. But, after being stung by a bee, his football career catapulted into the Mickey Mouse Athletics football league.
Young Ferdinand does not enjoy butting helmets with other athletes, preferring instead to lie under a tree smelling the flowers. Notably, his mother worried that he might be lonely and tried to persuade him to play football. After seeing how content Ferdinand was, she decided to leave him alone.
As Ferdinand grew older, he turned out to be the largest and strongest athlete in the surrounding areas of Madrid. All the other bulls dream of being chosen to compete in the bull fight in Madrid, but Ferdinand still prefers smelling the flowers to fighting. Five men come to the pasture to choose a bull for the fights. Ferdinand is again on his own, sniffing flowers, when he accidentally sits on a bee. He runs wildly across the field, snorting and stamping. Mistaking Ferdinand for a mad bull, the men rename him Ferdinand the Fierce and take him away to Madrid.
All the beautiful ladies of Madrid turn out to see the handsome matador fight Ferdinand the Fierce. However, when Ferdinand is led into the ring, he is delighted by the flowers in the ladies’ hair and lies down in the middle of the ring to enjoy them, upsetting and disappointing everyone. Ferdinand is sent back to his pasture, where to this day, he is still smelling flowers.
