In "The Sky Is Falling," Mother Bear gives Little Bear a "special hat" (a flowerpot) that completely covers his head, including his ears. Still, he continues to carry on a conversation with her as if he can hear her just fine.
Duck: Being very, very quiet is making me very, very hungry.
Hen: It's Father's Day. And Little Bear and Father Bear are going fishing, just the two of them --- and I'm going too.
Mother Bear: (reciting poem) The sun is sleeping / The clouds are creeping / The wind is calling / The sky is falling!
Little Bear: But Hen, we're going fishing: just the two of us.
Hen: Just the two of you are going fishing and we'll all have a wonderful time.
Fisherman Bear was created by Little Bear as friend for Emily's doll Lucy back in "Lucy Needs a Friend."
