Dik Trom, Chubby Drums, lives in Roundville, a place where all people are fat and happy, like eating a lot and especially often laugh. Of course, Dik is quite plump and very satisfied with his figure, which helps him to win the Roundville sports competition every year. For no one can better jump off the three-meter tower, thereby displacing almost all the water from the swimming pool. One day his parents receive the offer to open a real restaurant in Thinhaven, instead of their hot dog stand. But the Trom family does not know that Thinhaven is the exact opposite of Roundville. There the people are very busy watching their weight, eating low fat and calorie-consciously and do continuous exercises. Fat people like the Troms are a scandal in Thinhaven! Suddenly, Dik, who was always so popular at home, is teased by the others and for the first time, he has a problem with his figure. But then he makes friends with Lieve, the prettiest girl in class, and shares a secret with her.
