The Big Brown Bear leaves his cave one morning to catch a trout for dinner. Despite his much wiser wife's stern warning to stay away from the beehive, the "good smell of honey" soon overpowers the bumbling bear's own good intentions and he makes a short detour-straight to the very beehive his wife warned him against!
