SCENE 1 Mama Bear is pregnant with a new baby, which everyone is excited about, even Baby Bear, until he learns that the new baby is going to be a part of the family. Baby Bear fears that this will ruin what they're all about: the THREE Bears: a storybook-classic, not to mention the fact that he fears that he'll no longer be needed as the "Baby Bear", but Mama and Papa Bear explain to him that the new baby will have it's own name, and that they'll still love him no matter how many children are in the family. Mama Bear is then rushed to the hospital when she feels it's time for the baby to arrive, and Baby Bear is dropped off at Gina's where the two of them and Telly have a sleep-over while Mama Bear is in the hospital.
