DEBUT 1998
Bertha the bug

Tutter meets Bertha (from the storybook).

Bertha appears in the Bear in the Big Blue House episode "Buggin'" and in the 2001 storybook, Bugged by Bugs.

Tutter is having a bad bug day, which started when he was picking tomatoes from his garden. Startled by a bee, he decides to bunk down in the Big Blue House. After hearing a noise he thinks is Bear, he goes outside and makes friends with Bertha, who is eating a weed from his garden. Tutter learns that bugs do great things in nature, and together with Bertha the friends go and explore more bugs in the yard.

Bertha lives in a log at the Otter Pond. In "Buggin'," she accidentally wanders into the Big Blue House. Tutter is actually able to understand a bit of Bertha's language. She tells him her name and that she misses her home.
