Berenstain Bears

House Of Mirrors/Too Much Pressure

Season 1, Episode 22 of 40

HOUSE OF MIRRORS: When something she overhears mistakenly leads Sister to believe she has "big ears", nothing Mama can do will convince her otherwise. So instead Mama takes Sister to the carnival and to the House of Mirrors where their mirror images distort them in every way, shape and form imaginable - fat, thin, stretched, squished, until finally Sister finds herself staring at a mirror that makes her ears look truly elephantine. By comparison, Sister realizes that her ears are not big and that bears come in all shapes and sizes. The important thing is that our inner goodness speaks to who we are much more than our outward appearance does. TOO MUCH PRESSURE: Between Brother's baseball, soccer and karate, Sister's gymnastics, art and swimming, Mama's quilting club and PTA and Papa's furniture orders and town council reforestation committee, The Bear Family can hardly squeeze in a visit to Gran and Gramps'. Devising a huge schedule board to try to keep track of who' s coming and who's going where and when, they're surprised to discover it's completely filled. Ultimately things come to a head as Mama finds herself in a situation where she and the cubs are supposed to be in three places at once. At the same time, the car breaks down...and so does Mama. Realizing that they just have too much pressure, the Bear Family decide to cut down on the number of their activities. That way, with the pressure off, they all now have the time to truly enjoy the things they do.
