An uplitfting story about a bear without a smile A very sad-looking French bear has arrived in the toy shop. His name is Albert le Blanc. The other toys plan a special show to cheer him up. Albert keeps trying to tell the toys he's not sad - he just has a sad face - but they are too busy with their show... Jack-in-a-box leaps around, Pickle the mouse tries to tell a joke (but forgets the ending) and Sally the hippo puts on her bright red lipstick and performs a ballet. But, Sally's ballet moves aren't quite as graceful as intended and she falls on top of Albert, planting a big kiss right on his mouth. And when Albert gets up again he has a huge red lipstick grin all over his face. Everyone laughs and laughs... especially Albert le Blanc!
