Goldie and the Bothersome Bears

CHILDREN'S COMEDY. All Goldie’s parents want her to do is to stay at home and watch TV, but Goldie, an independent, outdoorsy girl, would rather spend time playing in the forest. One day while venturing forth into the woods, Goldie meets Little Red Riding Hood, a wolf, and three bears and invites them all over for dinner. But who should happen to appear unexpectedly? Goldie’s cousin, Carlton Weston, who just happens to be an avid hunter of both bears and wolves. After Goldie convinces Carlton that the wolf and bears are friendly, Carlton puts down his shotgun, and proceeds to engage the bears in an “intelligent” conversation. You see, it turns out that Carlton has a hidden talent—he’s fluent in several bear dialects including grizzly, panda, polar, koala, and gummi, to name just a few. But the evening goes too smoothly, and the bears and Carlton decide to stay the entire winter!
