NEW NEIGHBORS/THE BIG ELECTION
The Bear family must adjust to their new and different neighbors. Papa decides to run for Mayor.
NEW NEIGHBORS: When the family next door moves away, Papa, Mama and the cubs all hope their new neighbors will be just like their old ones. But when the new neighbors turn out to be nothing at all like the old ones, the Bear Family has trouble adjusting and can't seem to warm up to them. But, by focusing on who their new neighbors are instead of who they aren't, the Bear Family learns to appreciate their differences and realizes the new neighbors are just as great as the old ones - in their own way. THE BIG ELECTION: When Papa's complaints to City Hall about all the potholes around town seem to be falling on deaf ears, he decides to take matters into his own hands and run for Mayor. While trying to take care of everyone's concerns, Papa ends up promising everything to everyone and soon discovers that Mayor Honeypot's job is no easy task. In the end, Papa decides he can fulfill his civic responsibility much better by being part of the solution instead of part of the problem, so he helps lighten the Mayor's load by organizing a group of volunteers to repair the potholes themselves.
