Dancin' the Day Away is the tenth episode of the first season.

Plot[]

Bear is feeling great, so great that he rather wants to dance. His favorite dance is the Cha-Cha-Cha, but he finds that the kids of the Big Blue House are dancing as well. Bear finds Ojo dancing a dance that she created herself which is a variation of a famous Spanish dance called "the flamenco" called "the flamingo." When Bear turns on the radio to a channel called WCHA in his room, but leaves to go find his maracas, Treelo comes in and dances. Bear's search leads him to the kitchen, where he finds Tutter taking a nap in the dish rack. Tutter tells Bear that he has "no rhythm, no beat," but Pip and Pop arrive to school him in dancing. Shadow sings a song about a dancing teddy bear.
