Wherever you're going, I'm going too. / Whatever you're doing, I'm sticking with you.
Bear and Squirrel are best friends. They canoe together, but Bear is slightly too heavy for the boat. They seesaw together, but Squirrel is launched into the air. They have teatime, but Bear accidentally breaks Squirrel's favorite mug.
Finally, Squirrel has had enough. He tells Bear he needs his space — only to realize he has much more fun with his best friend around. Funny and poignant in equal measure, I'm Sticking with You shows that friendship always finds a way.
