Edith ("The Lonely Doll") brings a kitten back from the country, and her friend Little Bear feels very left out as Edith focuses all of her attention on her cuddly new playmate. It’s only when Edith is confined to her bed with the measles that she begins to realize how much she misses Little Bear’s companionship. Little Bear sneaks in for a visit that turns into a disaster when he tries to cut Edith’s tangled hair. When Little Bear gets the measles, too, Edith uses her savings to buy him a puppy. Much to Mr. Bear’s delight, the two agree to share their pets and harmony is restored.
