Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Telly quickly tells Dylan and a Honker to tell their families about Sesame Street's newest baby - Curly Bear. Then, he hears moaning and Baby Bear arrives, who is a "wee-little wreck" because of the new baby. As they walk down the street, he tells Telly that the moment she got home, he hasn't received much attention from Mama Bear and Papa Bear and the attention he has gotten has been less than useful (in brushing his teeth and putting on his PJs). He is even upset by the fact that his family bedtime song has been altered to include Curly.

SCENE 1 cont'd The two have now reached the park, where Telly admits he'd love to have a baby sister. Baby Bear continues that he hasn't even gotten to spend some father-and-son time with Papa Bear because of Curly and his new job to help support her. Just then, Papa Bear shows up to spend time with him. Baby Bear confesses his problems to him and Papa Bear assures he will always have time and love for both his children, singing "Different People, Different Ways."
SCENE 1 cont'd Mama Bear arrives with Curly Bear, who grabs hold of Baby Bear's ear. He takes this as a sign of her love and begins to warm up to having her around.
