Never has Mr. Cheerful been without a smile. From breakfast in the morning to his bath at night. He was even happy when it rained! When he met Mr. Funny, he was so happy that he pulled off a funnier face than he usually does. One day, he runs into Little Miss Splendid who begins to smile, but then complains about Mr. Cheerful not raising his hat. For the first time in his life, Mr. Cheerful lost his smile - and blushed bright red. Miss Splendid finally talks him into raising his hat, showing the total of only three hairs on his head. Miss Splendid tells Mr. Cheerful that it is his big bright smile that everyone loves, not how many hairs he has on his head. So from that day on, Mr. Cheerful was once again, never without a smile. And everyone he passes leaves with a smile. There's only one thing left to say... hats off to Mr. Cheerful!
