  • Episode Description
  • Available on VHS and DVD, Bear in the Big Blue House Live! Surprise Party toured across North America (United States and Canada) and was based on the episode "Mouse Party." It's Tutter's birthday and viewers are invited to join Bear and the kids in the Big Blue House as they work together to plan a surprise party for Tutter. This stage production features many of the voices from the show and many of its songs as well, such as "The Bear Cha-Cha-Cha," "Baby, Baby" and "Otter Love." On his birthday, Tutter finds himself missing his friends, not knowing that they're in the process of planning an elaborate surprise party. While he laments being all alone, the preparations are in full-swing. Ojo gets to work on making the cake, Pip and Pop are placed in charge of the decorations and Treelo is given the task of wrapping Tutter's present. Pip and Pop get literally wrapped up in the decorations, but Bear helps them to break free. And Treelo finds himself wanting a present, but Bear helps him to see that even when it's not your birthday, there's a lot of fun to be had at a birthday party. The VHS / DVD recording features cuts at appropriate times for audience reactions. Additionally, a couple of lucky kids with birthdays get to come on-stage for a special presentation of "Happy, Happy Birthday." The Shadow segment, recycled from "Bear's Birthday Bash" features the children of the week.moreless
