Two gangs of cats live in a scrap yard on the edge of the city. When they're not eating or sleeping, they're fighting, and that's just how The Whisperer likes it. He's a rat, and if he can keep the cats going after each other, they'll leave him and his kind alone. But just maybe, things in the scrap yard are about to change for the better. Or as The Whisperer sees it...for the worse...
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!
