Everyone likes Bear, especially when he gives them big hugs. Nobody like Skunk, who gives free slugs. Bear tries to convince Skunk to let him give him a hug, but Skunk says nobody ever hugs a skunk. Skunk decides to make Bear smell bad so that nobody wants to hug him. The plan backfires, making Skunk smell instead, but Bear still offers to give him a hug. After trying and failing to make Bear unhugable, Skunk finally accepts a hug and decides that he likes them after all, if Bear is still willing to hug him.
