This being the first episode, Bear's asking of Luna if she'll sing the Goodbye Song is a bit different than other episodes. He asks her if she'll sing a goodbye song with him, rather than the Goodbye Song. A subtle difference in phrasing to note that this a routine that is being established.
This episode, as the premiere, features the first use of the opening theme, "Welcome to the Blue House" and the "Goodbye Song." There are also two other original songs "(It's) Great to Be at Home" and "No Place Like My Bedroom." The first song is Track 11 on the album "Songs from Jim Henson's Bear in the Big Blue House" and is titled simply "Great to Be at Home" on that album. It is Track 4 on the first Playhouse Disney CD and is titled "It's Great to Be at Home" on both that album and the closing credits for this episode.
This episode features two songs --- "Oh, Water, Water, Water" and "Need a Little Help Today." "Need a Little Help Today" is Track 23 on the album "Songs from Bear in the Big Blue House."
Tutter uses various boxes in his attempt to construct something to help him reach the faucet. Although some of the letters are somewhat obscured, one of them is most definitely a box of Kellogg's Apple Jacks.
This episode includes a brief segment in which real kids talk about some of the shapes that water takes on. These include raindrops, drops from a sprinkler and waves.
There are two songs in this episode: "When I'm Older" and "Happy, Happy Birthday." "When I'm Older" is Track 8 on the album More Songs from Bear in the Big Blue House. "Happy, Happy Birthday" is Track 5 on the album Songs from Jim Henson's Bear in the Big Blue House and is listed as "The Birthday Song" in the closing credits for this episode.
This episode is one of three on the DVD "Party Time with Bear."
There are three songs in this episode --- "Me I'm the Shape of Bear" performed by Bear, a reprise performed by Bear and Ojo, and Shadow singing "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star."
Bear goes a step further than usual in acting as if he knows he's on a TV show when he tells viewers that their TV is a rectangle. Of course, some younger viewers may not entirely realize that what they're viewing is a production.
This episode features three songs --- "A Picture of Health," "Quiet Time" and "The Bear Cha-Cha-Cha." "Quiet Time" is Track 16 on the "Songs from Jim Heson's Bear in the Big Blue House" album. There is also a reprise of the song performed a bit later on the episode. "The Bear Cha-Cha-Cha" is Track 3 on the same album.
Schedule listings give the title of the episode without a comma, however, there is a comma in the display at the beginning of the episode.
The closing credits run unusually long. At the end of the closing credits, the dog in the Shadow Projects logo quacks like a duck.
Songs in this episode are "Always Something to Share" and "Clean Up the House."
This episode includes a brief segment in which some real kids talk about who they ike to share with and things that they share.
"Share, Bear" was also released as the first ever book based on the series, titled Two Can Share, Too. Many changes are made from the episode and this book focuses almost exclusively on the story Ojo, Treelo and Snow Bear.
The song in this episode is "Gravity". The melody for this song would later be used for "Listen Up!" in the episode of the same name.
This episode features one song, "Falling for Fall."
This episode includes a brief segment in which real kids discuss what they love best about the fall. Much it involves leaves --- leaves falling, changing color, throwing leaves, jumping in them and making collages with them. Other favorites include wearing sweaters and jackets, it not being so hot and eating apples.
