Words, Words, Words is the nineteenth episode of the third season.


Bear wakes up early on a sunny day and finds himself thinking about words. He enjoys reading the words in the Woodland Valley Gazette, as it helps him to keep-up-to-date on what's happening in Woodland Valley. While reading the paper, he hears a comotionn in the kitchen and finds Harry and Tutter playing there. Tutter wanted to play knights and shining armor, but something about what he's saying is causing Harry to quack up a storm. He told Harry that he could be "Big Beaky the Dragon" and now every time he says "big beak", Harry goes "all quacky". Bear has the two talk things and Tutter finds that Harry is sensitive about the big size of the beak. He apologizes, saying that he likes his beak. Next, Bear helps Pip and Pop when they can't find the "whatchamacallit" that stops the water from draining out of the bathtub --- the plug. Pip and Pop find that they're good with words, and rhyming. Later on, Ojo and the others hold a tea party in the attic. Harry's shy and afraid to join in, but Bear tells him that if he uses his words, the others will let him join in. In the Shadow Segment, Shadow tells the story of Peter Piper, who picked a peck of pickled peppers.
