Maw Maw sends her family off on a mission that proves to be more dangerous than she thought. She warned them about the big bad bear that lives under the bridge, but no one listened. Even Maw Maw falls victim to the giant animal It appears as if there will not be any fluffy biscuits ever again, but when a smart, brave, and hungry squirrel comes to their rescue, everyone finds their taste buds satisfied.
