"With those tiny wings of yours you will never ever be able to fly!" Once again the other insect kids laugh at the little bumblebee Bobbles. Maybe they are right? His wings are really very small! How are they supposed to carry his tubby body?

All the way back home, he is tormented by this question: Why are his wings so different? He poses this question to the dragonfly, the ladybug, the minister fly and his friend the caterpillar Ricardo. Only when the cricket sings the song "You are who you are" for him, the little bumblebee Boobles finally recognizes that he doesn't need bigger wings for flying but a greater amount of courage. Maybe Doctor Harvestman can help him with that?

When Bobbles closes his eyes and beats his wings really fast, he suddenly hears a loud buzz. The little bumblebee can hardly believe it: He is flying!
