SCENE 1
Baby Bear is working in his collage, “Still Life with Porridge.” He notes, however, that the real porridge he used is no longer hot. He thinks adding something above to make steam lines will work effectively. He takes his favorite piece of red string and decides to add it to his picture. While he applies the paste, his string disappears. Baby Bear begins to freak out (“This cannot be happening in a civilized society!”).

After going through the beginning, middle and end, they find no red string, but an anvil Oscar has attached on the end.

SCENE 4
Disguised as bushes, Baby Bear and Gabi plant some decoy string by the Fix-It Shop for the thief and plan to jump him when he arrives to steal the string. Carlo walks by and mistakes the string for trash. The kids mistake him for the thief and begin questioning him, but find he’s innocent and promise to throw the string away once they’re done with it. They resume their posts and watch some kids pass by, none of them even acknowledging the string. The two get thirsty and head inside Hooper’s Store briefly for a drink. While they aren’t looking, a small bird flies by and swipes the string.
