David's always getting in trouble. Whether he's tracking in mud, banging on pans, jumping on his bed, or playing with his food, he hears, 'No, David!' Here, we see David misbehaving again and again, in colorful, comic glory, like when he opens his mouth and we see a gaping hole like the night sky filled with half-chewed food. Won't David be hurt that the only words he hears are scolding? At the end, David's mom surrounds him in a warm hug.
