SCENE Baby Bear welcomes the viewer and tells us that he’s taking care of his little sister, Curly. It’s time for her nap and Baby Bear is all prepared for his β€œfool-proof napping system”. He shows off the things he has for her – her blanket, her dolly and finally her favorite book, β€œFind the Bears”. He remarks how well the story works when it comes to her nap and starts reading the book, pointing out the various locations of the bears in the story. Curly slinks off to what Baby Bear thinks is sleep, but she’s really awake. Baby Bear is shocked and tries reading the book again, but with no success. With no other plan, Baby Bear begins begging for her to sleep, but she grabs his ear instead.
SCENE cont'd Maria and Gabi exit 123 Sesame Street and remark how cute Curly looks. Baby Bear tells them of his problem and Maria offers a good solution, singing a lullaby that she used to sing to baby Gabi in Spanish. Curly finally gets to sleep, but not for long. Baby Bear wishes something would put her to sleep.
SCENE cont'd A puff of smoke appears and in comes the Fairy Nap-Mother, who has come to grant his wish. She tries some of her sparkling magic fairy dust and a magic rhyme, but that doesn’t work as well. Seeing how poorly she has done, she decides to take a nap herself.

SCENE cont'd Oscar bursts out of his trash can to tell Baby Bear to tone down the sweetness. Baby Bear explains his predicament, and Oscar makes a deal to put her to sleep in exchange for quiet. Oscar commands his pets to make noise down in his trash can, which (despite Baby Bear’s disbelief) actually succeeds in putting Curly to sleep. Baby Bear complements Oscar and begins trying to thank him as Curly slips off into dreamland.
