Lois is Woodland Valley's telephone operator. She handles the operation by means of an old-fashioned switchboard. Being a bird, Lois fancies herself a singer. Her singing, however, is loud and off-key. When it comes to child-care, Lois seems to have a rather laissez-faire attitude. In "To Clean or Not to Clean," Bear asks her to watch over the kids of the Big Blue House, but she seems fine with letting them make decisions entirely on their own with no guidance.
