Five little monkeys jumping on the bed, but what happens when they all fall off and bump their heads in this fairytale mashup featuring characters from "Five Little Monkeys" and Goldilocks and the Three Bears?

Sleeping over at the home of Goldilocks and the three bears, these silly monkeys just can't seem to stop jumping and falling off the bed. Luckily, Mama Bear is a doctor and knows just what to do in this reimagined version of the classic nursery rhyme song.
