Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Angela welcomes the viewer to daycare and is about to take attendance of her six visitors (including Baby Bear, Nathan, Rosita, Telly, Lonnell and baby Kayla). Baby Bear opts out of helping to count, as he can only count as high as 3 (because of his family). Angela believes he can learn and starts counting the kids at daycare, as Baby Bear repeats the numbers 4 through 6. He's rejoices over his accomplishment (underscored by a pastiche of the classic Rocky theme).
