Synopsis
Herbie receives some odd lollipops and his father tries one, only to be motivated to take away all Herbie's lollipops. Herbie escapes with his lollipop cabinet and hides in a bear cage at the zoo. The next day, the bear's miserable because bears are portrayed negatively. Herbie uses magic to allega-poop himself into a story book, but finds that bears deserve their image. He goes back in time to set up some positive images.
