Ojo and Treelo Pretend Flying to the moonEdit

Bear: I know, the rocket will take off, let's countdown. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 ,1, Ignition! And lift off.

Gravity (word), Gravity and What Do You Think?Edit

Bear: Have you ever wondered why you and I can't fly for real? Well, it's all because of gravity. {The word "Gravity" appears below.} See? Gravity. Yeah. Gravity is what makes us all stay on the ground. You can't see it, but it's there. In fact, it's what makes things fall.

♪ Take a leap, off the ground. ♪

♪ Pretty soon, you come down ♪

♪ Jump again real high. ♪

♪ You can't stay up no matter how hard you try ♪

♪ Now if you're sad you can't fly, ♪

♪ Well, neither can I ♪

♪ But we can have fun singing 'bout the reason why ♪

♪ It's Gravity, Gravity ♪

♪ Gravity, what are you doin' to me? ♪

♪ Cause every time I come up, I always come down. ♪

♪ And I can feel Gravity when I hit the ground ♪

♪ Rubber ball, let it drop ♪

♪ It'll bounce, but it won't stay up ♪

♪ Something pulls it to Earth ♪

♪ And it's pulling us too, for what it's worth

♪ That table, that chair, this house, this Bear are all on the ground instead of up in the air because of Gravity, Gravity ♪

♪ Gravity, what are you doin' to me? ♪

♪ Cause every time I come up, I always come down ♪

♪ And I remember Gravity when I hit the ground ♪

♪ Gravity, Gravity ♪

♪ You can't see it, but you feel it, Gravity ♪

♪ So when I wonder "What's Up?" or "What's Going Down?" ♪

♪ I remember what's keeping me on the ground... ♪ 

♪ Gravity! ♪♪

I'm sure glad we had Gravity.

What Do You Think?

Tutter's EggsEdit

(Cut to: Downstairs Hallway)

Bear: Wow. You guys know a lot about Gravity and falling down.

Tutter: [when his egg drops] Oh, No! My egg! Oh, hickory dickory, my egg!

Ojo Can't Fly and Can BounceEdit

Bear: Well, I don't want to keep Pip and Pop waiting too long.

Ojo: Ouch! Bear! Bear!

Bear: Did you hear that? That sounds like Ojo and it Sounds like it's coming from upstairs. Come on, let's see if she's okay.

(Cut to: Bear's Bedroom)

Ojo: Ouch! Bear!

Bear: What happened? What happened?

Treelo: Bear, Bear, Ojo fell down. Ojo fell down. Ojo fell down.

Bear: She fell? Are you okay, Ojo?

Ojo: (crying) Yeah. We were having so much fun pretending to fly, I thought maybe, just maybe, I really could fly, and... and... I... CAN'T!!!! (crying)

Treelo: Poor Ojo.

Bear: Well, Ojo, there's something I wanted to tell you. Bears can't fly.

Ojo: Bears can't fly?

Bear: Nope, not even if you really wanted to.

Ojo: I can't fly? But how come?

Bear: Well, Bears and children aren't like birds. Birds have wings which are special for flying. When Bears and children jump from high places, we fall. And when you fall from a high place, you can get hurt.

Ojo: I know, I know. I can't fly.

Bear: Aw, Ojo.

Treelo: Ojo, Ojo, we can bounce.

Bear: You two have fun. Meanwhile, I have a serious game of catch to get too.

Shadow's StoryEdit

Bear: Hey. You know what? I just remembered. We haven't seen Shadow today. But maybe if we look real hard and sing a song together, she'll appear. (starts to sing) ♪ Oh! Where-oh-where oh where is Shadow? ♪ ♪ Where-oh-where oh where is Shadow? ♪ (to the screen's lens) ♪ Where-oh-where oh where is Shadow? ♪ (touches his forehead and camera pans) ♪ Where could Shadow be? ♪♪ {looks and hollers} Shadow!

Shadow: Hey, Bear, your ears are showing.

Bear: What? But they always are. Shadow.

Shadow: (laughs) I gotcha, Bear!

Bear: (laughs) You sure did. It's so nice to see you. What have you been doing today?

Shadow: Oh, I was just flying around in the forest playing with the lights at the top of the trees.

Bear: Ooh! That sounds like fun. Well, Shadow, I was wondering could you tell us a story?

Shadow: Why, Certainly, Bear. Let me see what I can think up for you today. Just watch.

(glitter shines with flute)

Shadow: (narrating) Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.

Humpty Dumpty: Yeah, man. It's pretty cool up here! Hanging out, checking out the scenery, Playing the bongos!

*plays the bongos*

Shadow: Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

Humpty Dumpty: Well man I can see my house from up here-- uh oh, I slipped!

*screams as he falls and breaks into pieces*

Shadow: All the King's horses,

*Horse neighs*

Shadow: And all the King's men could not put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

Knight: Well of course we can't put him back together again! Have you ever seen a horse try to glue anything back together?! It's absolutely ridiculous! Why they can't even hold on to the glue pot!

*horse picks up the Glue pot but drops it*

Knight: That's it! I am leaving! I am not going to be held responsible for this mess!

*horse picks up a lump of sugar and neighs*

Knight: No I will not come back to work for a lump of sugar! Goodbye!

*The knight leaves as the horse tries to fix Humpty Dumpty*

Horse: Oh, Humpty *sad mood*

(glitter shines)

Bear: Wow. What a great story. Poor Humpty Dumpty though.

Shadow: Hmm.

Bear: Uh, Shadow, I was wondering have you ever fallen?

Shadow: Sure, Bear. I've fallen across the floor, across the ground, up the walls, I'm a Shadow after all.

Bear: Hmm. Interesting.

Shadow: Well, I'm off, Bear. But when you need another story, just try and catch me. (laughing)

Bear: (laughing) Bye-bye, Shadow.

Pip and Pop Play Ball with BearEdit

Bear: Ah, What a Day.

Pip and Pop: Bear!

Bear: Ah, I almost forgot. I have my game of catch with Pip and Pop. Coming!

Bear: This is going to take a while I'll meet you back at the House.

Luna Plots About Gravity and The Goodbye SongEdit

(Night falls in)

Pip and Pop: Bye, Bear. Thanks for the catch.

(Cut to The Attic)

Bear: Ah, The Attic. Isn't it Great? Sometimes I just like to come out here and look out at the stars. It's also where I come up to talk to a special friend. Let's go see if we can find her. (enters his Gravity balcony) Ah, there she is. It's Luna, my friend, the Moon. Hello, Luna.

Luna: Why, Hello, Bear. Nice seeing you. I was just getting ready to glow across the night sky. Tell me, how was your Day in The Big Blue House?

Bear: Well, it was a really good Day. Ojo and Treelo and I pretended to fly. and countdown from ten
