There's an episode of the Simpsons in which the horrid Mr Burns is re-united with his lost teddy bear Booboo, but only after wrestling it from the clutches of baby Maggie.

unexpectedly turns the color blue, it's only with the help of the warm sun that he learns to remember joy and change back to his true color.
