Mr. Bumble is tired and would like to take a midday nap. It comes to nothing, his friends don´t give quiet. So he retires to a lonely and quiet place. But there, on the top of a mountain, the silence is to quiet, that he can´t fall asleep as well. He decides to return and is glad to be at his friends again. And noises will become music for him. Will he finally find his well-deserved sleep?
