Tutter's Grandma Flutter has to go to her dance class, so she drops her little granddaughter, Baby Blotter, off at the Big Blue House for Bear and Tutter to babysit. Tutter learns how to take care of a baby. But, when Blotter starts crying, everyone tries to help her feel better. Nothing works until Treelo comforts her, gives her his baby rattle, and says he loves her. In the Shadow segment, Shadow sings "Rock-a-bye Baby," repeated from A Winter's Nap in different sound effects.
- Baby, Baby (song, music and lyrics by David Yazbek)
- Look At You Now (Music and Lyrics by Brian Woodbury)
[Shadow starts narrating "Baby with the Parachute", repeated from "A Winter's Nap".]
Shadow: (reading) Rockabye baby / In the treetop / When the wind blows / The cradle will rock / When the bough breaks
[The tree branch breaks apart on top of it.]
Shadow: The cradle will fall / And down will come baby / Cradle and all!
Baby: It's a good thing I had a parachute. Heh heh heh.
