Old Bear refuses to hibernate. "Sleeping is such a waste of time", he grumbles. So he turns up the radio and prepares to keep himself awake for the whole winter. He's soon joined by Brown Bear who can't sleep either, and together, the two plan a fabulous vacation for the summer months ahead. It turns out to be one of the most restful vacations they've ever had. Zzzzzz.....
