In this episode, clams are used as the official Woodland Valley currency. However, in the third-season episode "The Yard Sale," dollars and cents were used.
Jeremiah Tortoise is the sole proprietor of the Woodland Valley General Store.
Two rabbit characters are introduced in this episode --- a little boy named Billy and his mother Bonnie. Their home was flooded in the storm that wrecked the library in "Welcome to Woodland Valley."
To make money, Ojo, Treelo and Tutter create a lemonade stand. Sales are slow, but they sell Bear cookies and lemonade for a total of four clams. The lemonade was made from salt instead of sugar and Bear gets a horrified look on his face after he gulps down an entire pitcher full. Pip and Pop make money by gathering clams, which they sell to Lois, who says that she'll make jewelry out of them. They receive two Woodland Valley clams for their sale.
This episode features the original song "General Store."
Bear: Hey, everybody, listen. It's okay want things. Everybody wants things. But the important thing to remember is the difference between wanting something and really needing it.
Tutter: I went with the domestic. More cheese for your clam.
Ojo: Oh, but Bear...
Ojo: You bought it, don't you want to, um, drink it? It's delicious.
Bear: Um... I had a feeling you'd ask that.
Tutter: The whole money thing, um, how does that work, exactly?
Pip: We wanna buy stuff.
Pop: Um, how do you buy stuff, Bear?
Tutter: Yeah, you know we see you go into the General Store then --- then you come out and you've got all this stuff.
Pip and Pop: Yeah. How does that work, Bear?
