I'm scared!

Don't lag behind!

Come on, Tylo!

Mother! We're back!

Oh, my goodness...

Where have you been?

Go wash yourself!

Look at you, you're soaking wet!

You're covered in mud!

I see you were not in a hurry to get

home.

But we ran all the way home!

Even across the bridge.

Oh, God!

- Go to bed now!

- I'm hungry!

You're having no supper tonight!

Go on, go to bed!

Hurry up!

Where are the children?

I sent them to bed.

To bed? So early?

- They misbehaved today.

- Misbehaved?

Yes. They went to the bridge.

And I have told them time and time

again never to cross that thing!

Little rascals!

They have gotten out of hand.

Children are all the same.

They keep forgetting.

Will you stop defending them!

Mytyl?

Tyltyl?

Are you asleep?

Are you?

How can I be asleep

when I'm talking to you?

You mustn't get up!

Mommy will be angry again.

What's all that?

I'm going down to look.

They're going to punish us, Tyltyl.

They won't if they don't hear us.

- Why are they making such a noise?

- They're musicians.

- Are they angry?

- No, it's just their work.

What's all that on the tables?

Cakes, and fruit and tarts...

- Are they going to eat them?

- What else would they do with them?

Why don't they eat them at once?

They're not hungry.

Not hungry? Strange people.

They eat whenever they want to.

- Every day?

- So I'm told.

Will they eat them all?

Perhaps they'll give some to us?

They don't know us.

Look, Tyltyl, they're eating them.

The girls have got two cakes each.

- The boys have got three!

- I've got twelve.

- I've got two times twelve.

- Give me some.

What's the matter?

We better go home.

We don't belong here.

It's cold.

Tyltyl, I'm cold.

So am I.

They're asleep. Come on.

Where is the bird

that is blue?

I must have it.

Give me the bird that is blue!

- Tyltyl has a bird.

- Yes, but I can't give it away.

- What? Why not?

- Because it's mine.

Well, that's a good reason, I suppose.

Where is this bird?

In the cage.

No, no, no...

It's not blue enough.

You must find me the one I want.

- We don't know where it is.

- No more do I!

That's why you must find it for me.

I must have the bluebird.

It's for a little girl

who's very ill.

What's the matter with her?

Well, we're not quite sure.

She wants to be happy.

Don't lose time, go at once!

- At once?

- Yes, why not?

We're supposed to be in bed.

In bed? Then what were you

doing outside?

Playing at eating cakes.

Where are these cakes?

Tell me, where are you hiding them?

I want cakes very much.

Where are they?

In the rich children's house.

And they invited you

to try their cakes?

No, we were just looking.

It was so beautiful over there...
