When King Bear moves out of the royal palace to live in a shabby apartment, people laugh and call him a "nothing king."  But the king likes putting on his own cozy pajamas himself, without any servants help. He doesn't need a big fancy horse-drawn carriage. All he needs is a small balcony, the sun, the sounds of the city, and a pot of pansies to tend.  While the townsfolk laugh at their nothing king, he laughs back at their folly.  He knows that "nothing" is all he needs.
