|Bear in the Big Blue House|
|Premiere||January 9, 1999|
|Written by||P. Kevin Strader|
The annual Tutter Family Reunion is held at the Big Blue House. However, the good-natured invasion of Tutter's huge family around the Big Blue House causes problems for Bear, Ojo, Pip and Pop, and Treelo, while also gradually unnerving Tutter himself when they keep interrupting his toast at the family dinner in his mouse hole.
As the other House occupants discuss their problems, Tutter, driven out of his hole by his anxieties and family's constant difficulties, joins and commiserates with them. However, an empathetic Grandma Flutter expresses her thanks to the rest of the House for dealing with the Tutter family, and helps Tutter realize that as difficult as his family may be, they all still love him and want to see him.
- Tutter's relatives include Grandma Flutter, Baby Blotter (first seen in "Ooh Baby, Baby") and his mother Juner, Yukker, Uncle Fez, Grandpa Highland McTutter, Jet Setter Tutter, Shouter, Whiner, Jitter, Jim, Tito, Billy (who wants to play baseball), Hopper (always on a pogo stick), and Tardy, among many others.
- This episode was adapted in book form under the same name.
- During the closing credits, the dog in the Shadow Projects logo says "thank you" instead of barking.
