Call It a Day is the thirty-sixth episode of the second season.


Bear and his friends have had a fun day. They had a fun time at the Otter Pond, and now it's night time and they are all ready for Bear's super-duper bedtime story all about "the time they came to the castle to meet a dragon", before sleeping. But when Bear starts to tidy the house, he notices Pip and Pop's beach ball and recalls the time they had fun at the Otter Pond. When he finished cleaning up, he has some warm milk to help give energy for what he will do the next day. Even Tutter has some milk too, after Bear sees a carrot recalls the time he has some bread and carrots with a conversation about how he had to go to the doctor.

After Shadow tells "a Day in a Life of a Dog", Bear brushes his teeth, and then sees Snow Bear and recalls the time Ojo had fun playing Pretend Mummy with Snow Bear. After thinking she also had mushed yams and honey ("sounds good to my tummy," he says), he gives both her and Snow Bear a kiss before she goes back to sleep.

Then he has a friendly conversation with Luna. He says that his friends are having a goodnight sleep, so they can do the same thing all again tomorrow (which is another day). Luna says that each and every day is a new beginning and it's like an adventure of doing things you have never done before each time you wake up, and he says agreeingly that there's always more fun to have. Then he says that the day wouldn't be complete without singing the goodbye song with Luna. "He always loves spending his day with you", he says and turns the attic light off the second time.
