Bear loves noodles. Fat noodles, thin noodles, flat noodles, crispy noodles – he’ll eat them all! But will getting all the noodles he could ever dream of make him happy?
Bear is hungry. Hungry for noodles! Bear’s friends suggest alternatives (Acorns? Sticks? Grass? No, thank you!). With no noodles to be found in the forest, Bear must journey to the big city. There he gets all the noodles he could ever want as a contestant on the noodle eating game show “Noodle Knockout”. It brings fame, fortune and, of course, noodles. But all the noodles in the world can’t replace the home and friends that he loves.
