Review: Jonas and Jennifer, twin bears living at the edge of the woods, have the responsibility of watching the house and doing their chores while their parents visit Grandmother Bear, who has taken ill. Unfortunately the cubs are rather simple and a little lazy, so the shortcuts they take in their work result in enormous misfortune. Adding to their misery, some thieves traveling past trick them out of a sack of gold, the family's entire fortune. Can they do anything to reverse this disastrous chain of events?
