The Amazing Skippy is the 17th episode of Season 5, 177th episode overall.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Treelo invites his squirrel friend Skippy for a visit to The Big Blue House, Bear and the kids are all excited to meet him. They are all surprised to learn that Skippy is blind and have a lot of questions for Bear while Treelo takes Skippy on a tour. They learn from Bear that Skippy has a disability, but isn't sick and that he likes to do many of the same things they do. As Skippy joins the kids during the day, they begin to wonder if he has special powers. He seems to know things that he seemingly couldn't know without some sort of special power. Skippy, however, teaches them that there's a lot one can tell by using all one's senses.
