When Baby Bear (Bebé Oso) and the Girl (Niña) find the Dog (Perro) sleeping, they decide to write their own version of The Little Red Hen (la Gallinita Roja). In their version, Armadillo proves to be a frustrating choice for the role of the Little Red Hen by constantly revising the story in progress. Worst of all, he chooses apples, grapes and bananas to top off his hamburgers, rather than tomatoes, cheese and lettuce. When the hamburgers are ready, no one wants to eat them! At least, not until The Three Goats (Los tres chivos) arrive-they'll eat anything.
