Episode Summary

A Strange Bird
One morning, Bear decides to visit the post office, knowing that Jeremiah can be slow in delivering the mail and wondering if anything's come. At the post office, he finds a two-week old postcard that reveals that a penguin named Puck from the South Pole is paying a visit to the Big Blue House --- today! Bear hurries home to greet Puck. Everyone there is eager to meet him, but the kids begin to worry when they find his food tastes and his behaviors somewhat odd. They try to play with him, but worry that they just don't understand him. Meanwhile, Tutter learns all about diversity at Mouse School.moreless

      Luna: Mmm.
      Bear: And all the interesting things we can learn from one another.

    • Jeremiah: Uh, mail, you said, huh.
      Bear: Well, this is the post office, right?
      Jeremiah: It is? ... Right, you are!

    • The kids of the Big Blue House play the song "I Only Have Ice for You" for Puck. The title of this song is a spoof on the classic lounge song "I Only Have Eyes for You," as performed by Frank Sinatra.
