Papa Bear accepts the prestigious job of making a one-of-a-kind chair for the Squire, but then learns the order must be filled by the next day for Mrs. Squire's birthday. Racing against time, Papa breaks from work only to eat, gobbling down his food as fast as he can. Unfortunately, a recurring case of the hiccups hinders Papa from meeting his deadline. Consulting Dr. Bear, Papa learns his problem is caused from eating too quickly. With his hiccups under control, Papa is able to complete the Squire's chair with a steady hand and a healthier digestive system.
