Once painted, they - and the other jungle creatures - no longer recognise him. He returns to the herd and the other elephants stand quietly until Elmer can't take the quiet anymore and he lifts his trunk and then, at the top of his voice, shouting "Boo!
The other elephants immediately realise that the grey elephant must be Elmer and applaud him for his best joke ever. When it begins to rain, the grey paint that Elmer has covered himself with starts to disappear, and Elmer's "true colours" are revealed, much to the delight of his friends, who preferred his multicoloured and fun loving personality.
Following their happy reunion, the elephants reassure Elmer that they love him because of his differences, and not in spite of them, and they celebrate by painting themselves in multi-coloured paint and Elmer paints himself gray , in recognition of Elmer's unique appearance and personality. Elmer the Patchwork Elephant also features in a wide range of merchandising.
