Chubby Drums

Chubby Drums is a cheery boy, honest and a bit fat. Together with his parents he lives in the cosy town of Roundville, where people are outgoing and enjoy eating fatty foods. His happy life changes when the family moves to Thinhaven where his father opens up a new restaurant. In Thinhaven no one is outgoing or fat, and the locals don’t want the Drums or their new restaurant in their city. For the first time in his life Chubby is becoming aware of his body, especially when he falls in love with Lieve, the most beautiful and skinny girl in Thinhaven. Now Chubby is determined to try and win Lieve’s heart, and at the same time, show the people of Thinhaven that true beauty lies within.
