Bear lives next door to Duck, who always wants to be busy doing something fun with Bear. Bear, on the other hand, needs some time to relax alone. Duck insists that the two of them go out together and have some quality time because Duck wants bear to like him! With all of Duck's demands, Bear insists that he likes Duck just like family. Duck has quite a few questions to ask Bear and usually Bear responds patiently. The two have a nice day together and are still pals, even if Duck has a incessant personality!
