Some Sneetches have stars on their bellies and other do not. The star-bellied Sneetches exclude the Sceetches who have no stars from everything they do. One a "fix-it-up" chapie named Sylvestor McMonkey McBean brings a machine that puts stars on those Sneetches. The Star-bellies get jealous and decide they don't want stars, so McBean gets an other machine that removes stars. Then it becomes an almost never ending cycle with groups of Sneetches removing and adding stars until "no knew which one was what or what one was whom." McBean drives away with his money taken from the Sneetches mocks the events that occurred; You can't teach a Sneetch." The Sneetches, however, did learn their lesson and treated each other equally from then on.
