Bear is excited to receive a Spanish-language teaching tape in the mail, as he is hoping to use some Spanish phrases in his upcoming phone conversation with his friend Ursa. Tutter learns a new way to communicate as well when he gets a case of laryngitis and Bear gives him a bell to ring if he needs anything. Bear shows Treelo how to use his words to communicate during a pretend game with Ojo and as he deals with this and the situation with Tutter, Pip and Pop learn from his Spanish tape, perhaps even more than Bear does. In the Shadow segment, Shadow presents a version of the classic counting rhyme "Over in the Meadow".
Tutter looses his voice in this episode.
This is the 7th time a main character becomes part of Bear's signoff at the end of episodes: Mouse Party, What's in the Mail, Today?, All Connected, Eat, Drink Juice & Be Merry, The Big Little Visitor and Listen Up!.
