As winter rapidly approaches, the seven squat bears (with the assistance of the third little pig) begin repairs on their squat little house. But brick doesn't come cheap, and they must trade their beloved cow for food if they're going to last through the long winter. Along the way, however, the squat bear charged with the task meets a very convincing old woman who offers him a single magic bean for the cow - an offer he readily accepts! But one bean isn't enough to feed even one squat bear, let alone seven! As their hunger - and the snow - sets in, the squat bears are visited by a smooth-talking cat in boots. He's got a bag full of bread and a few tricks up his sleeves...Can he help satiate the squat bears' hunger?
