White Water Adventure/Say Please & Thankyou

Season 1, Episode 35 of 40

White Water Adventure - At a weekend cub camp, Too Tall and the gang make a mess out of everything from pitching their tent to tie-dying t- shirts - all because Too Tall is too self-conscious to ask anyone for help. He professes to know everything to the point where he even accepts a canoe race challenge from Cousin Fred. But the night before the race, Too Tall secretly admits to Brother that he has no idea how to paddle a canoe and asks for his help. Brother is more than happy to oblige and gives him a crash course, which not only allows Too Tall to save face the next day at the race, but helps him learn that there's nothing wrong with not knowing something or asking for help. Say Please & Thankyou - Brother and Sister seem to have forgotten some important manners - like saying "please" when they need something, or saying "thank you" when something gets done for them. In fact, a lack of manners seems to be the norm around Bear Country school as well. After a few incidents are relayed to Mama and Papa during dinner, the cubs are reminded about the importance of saying please and thank you, and how much those three little words show appreciation and respect for others, and the things people do for them. Brother and Sister set out on a Please and Thank You mission at school the next day. Before long, the cubs' manners and show of appreciation start rubbing off on everyone, culminating in the school' s presentation of a plaque and big round of thanks to the school's caretaker, Grumpy Grizzly.
