Narrated by the ubiqitous Sterling Holloway, the cartoon begins as Mr. Stork delivers a new batch of arrivals to a flock of mother sheep. But there's been a mixup at headquarters, and one of the little lambs turns out to be a baby lion named "Lambert". Be that as it may, one of the ewes adopts Lambert as her very own--and as the years go by, he grows into an enormous (and enormously clumsy) lion. Because of his seeming cowardice, his unwillingness to butt heads with his "brothers", and his weird appearance, Lambert is laughed at and treated as an outcast. All this changes when the flock is threatened by a hungry wolf, whereupon Lambert's lionine instincts go into full "courage" mode.
