I For-Got Rhythm!? is the 8th episode of season 3, 98th episode overall.


One morning, Bear finds that he can no longer do The Bear Cha-Cha-Cha. It seems that he has simply lost his rhythm. It's so bad that he can't even say "cha-cha-cha". He loaned his records to Doc Hogg, but when he can't get them back, he has to find some other way to regain his rhythm. Pip and Pop attempt to help by providing their services as the "rhythm-masters". In the Shadow Segment, Shadow sings "Tingalayo" during the middle of her song, featuring a donkey learning a Latin beat. Later, Bear finds Treelo dancing to a calypso beat and joins in. Bear found his Cha-Cha-Cha.
