  • Episode Description
  • Bear returns to the Big Blue House from a business trip for Bearcraft Tools to find that everything's a mess. He left Lois in charge while he was away and it seems she was perfectly willing to go along with the kids' idea of not cleaning up so that they'd have more time to play. Now Ojo and Treelo are missing their toys --- Snow Bear and Rockboy, Pip and Pop have been stuck in one spot playing an increasingly boring game of tag and Tutter's trapped in the cheese drawer. Bear talks things over with everyone and they begin to see that maybe their time-saving idea is actually wasting time. They then have the same sort of idea about taking a bath, but Bear helps them by getting them to visualize what would happen if they stopped taking baths. In the Shadow segment, Shadow sings a song about how to make doing chores fun.moreless

    • Bear: Well, Luna, there's something else that makes me very happy. Luna: If you mean the Goodbye Song, Bear, I can't imagine a more pleasant chore.

    • Ojo: Oh. It's just nicer when things are neat.

    • Tutter: Hey, I just had a great idea, guys. Why don't we clean up the house? Bear: Phew. I thought you'd never ask.

    • Ojo: I see, Bear. It was the mess that made us lose our toys and that really cut into our playtime.

    • Bear: Tutter. Where are you? Tutter: I'm here. Where are you? Bear: Well, I'm here. Where are... Nevermind. Um, just keep talking, Tutter, and I'll find you. Tutter: Okay. What should I talk about? Bear: I don't know. Why don't you mention some of your favorite cheeses?

    Trivia (2)

    • This episode features the same set of songs heard in "Woodland House Wonderful" --- "Clean Up the House," "Everybody in the Tub" and "Brush Brush Bree." It was also written by the same writer, P. Kevin Strader.

    • This episode appears in some online listings with a production number of 218. However, this does not make sense, given that this episode is part of the fourth season and there is already an existing episode with this production number. Therefore, the number is likely actually 418.
