A Young Hare was naughty, he did not want to make friends with anybody, to talk with anybody. All puppets of the theatre ran away because of him. What were they to do? Surely to play! The actors were to play cheerful, instructive performances for Buka, but sometimes the performances were tearful enough. The puppets wanted Buka to understand that his friends were the best in the world.
