The Big Sleep is the 3rd episode of the Second Season.


It's nighttime at the Big Blue House and Bear is all set to sit on his swing and read a good book. Then, Ojo shows up, it turns out that there's a sleepover scheduled tonight that Bear completely forgot about. Before he knows it, Tutter, Ojo, Treelo, Pip and Pop are all there and ready for the big sleepover, despite his protests that they're not ready. He tries to settle back down to his book, but there's a lot to do during a sleepover. He prepares the kids a snack, reads them a story and supervises as they all brush their teeth. Finally, everyone is ready to go to bed, after some final, special good-night touches. Ojo has difficulty getting to sleep, but eventually dozes, only to be awakened by a bad dream. Bear soothes her back to sleep and then finds Shadow. Shadow sings her own special version of the lullaby "Hush, Little Baby."




  • The theme for this episode is about bedtime.
  • The title of this episode is a reference to Raymond Chandler's 1939 novel The Big Sleep. In the novel, the phrase refers to death, not sleep itself.
  • Tutter holds a sleepover of his own in the fourth season episode "Tutter's First Big Sleepover Bash."
  • This marks the second episode of Luna at the Otter Pond. This also marks the first episode of Luna is seen sleeping or taking a little nap.
