Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Fabulous
(First: Episode 4186)

SCENE Gina plays with Marco and meets an excited Baby Bear and Curly Bear. Baby Bear explains that tonight, his parents are going out to dinner, leaving them with their favorite babysitter, Grandmama Bear. However, Mama Bear and Papa Bear arrive with bad news: Grandmama Bear came down with a cold and can’t come over. Baby Bear is crushed, but Gina points out Gabi nearby and finds her an excellent babysitter. Gabi accepts the job, but Baby Bear doesn’t think too well of it.
SCENE cont'd As Curly runs around excitedly for Gabi to come, Papa Bear confronts Baby Bear about having any problems. Baby Bear covers up his own fears by claiming Curly’s the one who’s afraid of a new baby sitter. Gabi arrives, which means the parent’s must go, but Baby Bear tries to prolong their departure as much as he can.
SCENE cont'd First, Gabi wants to play a game, but Baby Bear points out that when their grandma is there, they always eat porridge-raisin cookies. Gabi doesn’t know how to make those, but has granola bars instead. Covering his problems again, Baby Bear claims that “Curly” won’t like the bars, but to his surprise, she loves them! Baby Bear tries one and enjoys it as well.

SCENE cont'd Gabi asks the children what they want to do now and Baby Bear claims that Grandma Bear would sing some golden-oldie bear songs, but Gabi doesn’t know any. However, she believes they can make up a new one and she cracks up a beat. She makes up a new song called “Doing the Bear”, which Baby Bear loves. Now, Gabi wants to play a game (which is exactly what Grandma Bear would do now), but she doesn’t know any bear games. Baby Bear finally sees the light and realizes “Curly” doesn’t have to do everything the same way they did it before. They begin playing all sorts of games, such as tag and “Ring Around the Rosie”.
SCENE cont'd Mama Bear and Papa bear arrive back, but the kids don’t want her to leave, but they rejoice at the idea of her coming back again.

Muppets Super Grover 2.0
A squirrel wants to display his giant acorn, but his shelf comes lose. Super Grover 2.0 arrives and tries holding it up, finding that won't work, nor does his sticky tape. The squirrel notices a hole in the shelf and thinks something should go in. Grover plugs a carrot in, which doesn't keep the shelf attached to the tree. The squirrel then notes the hole has ridges, so Grover tries a rigid potato chip that fails too. He finally pulls out a screw, which he thinks is useless. Despite Grover's doubts, the squirrel pulls out his screwdriver and uses the screw to attach his shelf to the tree, keeping it put!
