SCENE 1 At Gina's Day Care center, she welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and reveals that Baby Bear will be spending the night at her place after daycare today, while his Mama Bear and Papa Bear go on an overnight business trip. Right now, he's going over everything in his suitcase, making sure he has his special porridge bowl and spoon, his comb and brush, and his stuffed dog Ralph. When he remembers they're going away, he starts to cry. To make him feel better, his parents also gave him a family portrait to look at while they're away tonight.
