Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Baby Bear has breakfast at Hooper's Store, but his porridge is too hot. He tries blowing on it, which doesn't work. Mr. Handford suggests he go for a walk while it cools, but that's what Baby Bear always does. He gets an idea for a porridge-cooling machine, though Goldilocks has another idea to cool porridge. Baby Bear wants to come up with his own idea instead.
SCENE 2 Baby Bear shows Mr. Handford his invention: he turns a crank, which powers a pinwheel that blows air to the porridge. It still is too hot and Mr. Handford blames it on the small pinwheel. Baby Bear begins brainstorming, ignoring Goldilocks' suggestions once more.
Insert In the park, Bob watches Zoe while her mother's away. Zoe wonders how she'll know when her mom is back, and Bob sings "She'll Call 'Zoe'."
(EKA: Episode 3302)

SCENE 3 Baby Bear unveils his new porridge cooler with a larger pinwheel. It ends up blowing himself and his porridge away.
SCENE 4 Baby Bear is upset none of his inventions have worked, but Mr. Handford thinks he should be proud of the work he's done; one day, he might be a good inventor. Baby Bear finally relents and hears Goldilocks' idea - put a little milk in their porridge, cooling it down. Baby Bear angrily asks why she didn't say it sooner!
SCENE 5 Baby Bear has made his porridge cooler a "Mr. Handford cooler," who rests in a beach chair and announces the sponsors. Baby Bear and Goldilocks start another argument and the cooler blows Mr. Handford and his chair away.
