Meet Mr. Bean and his daughter Julie Bean, who run a little grocery store that brings out the silly in people. But when Jesύs Ironhands the Fire Lion (a character invented by patron Teddy) brings his own brand of “humor” to the store, things start to heat up! Lessons include: humor should feel like a friendly trick, not a personal attack; if you don’t know how to joke with a new friend, joking about yourself first can help break the ice.
