Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Rosita and Ruthie come across Baby Bear, who is lost in his own wee little world drawing. He tells them he prefers keeping his art from the public eye until it's completed, and Rosita can barely contain herself waiting to see what he's making. Baby Bear believes he'll be finished by the end of the theme song...

SCENE 1 Baby Bear finishes his drawing - a stylized letter D. Rosita loves it so much and showers him with hugs and kisses ("I hug you and your talent."), then wishes she could draw a D just like him. She asks to borrow his crayons and gets to work, while Baby Bear remarks how much more cooperative she is than Goldilocks. Rosita finishes her letter D, but is upset that it doesn't look anything like Baby Bear's. She keeps drawing until she gets it right.
