Welcome to Woodland Valley (1) is the 1st episode of the fourth season.
In the first part of "Welcome to Woodland Valley," viewers learn that a tragic event has happened in Woodland Valley. A tree has fallen and ruined part of the village library. Everyone's upset about it, but the entire Woodland Valley community is pulling together to help out. When the kids of the Big Blue House, including Harry, find out, they decide to help in their own way. Viewers explore more of Woodland Valley than they've ever seen before, visiting the library, the post office, the general store and the mouse school that Tutter will be attending, among other locations.

- The theme for this episode is about community.
- This episode was created partly as a response to the World Trade Center attacks of September 11, 2001. Though there is no reference to the specific events, the episode uses the theme of a building being destroyed and a community coming together.
- Beginning with this episode, the opening sequence, theme, and closing sequence are changed. The opening sequence and theme now take viewers on a short tour of Woodland Valley before finishing at the Big Blue House.
- In a DVD version, Bear doesn't say to sing the Goodbye Song with Luna. Instead he tells her that whatever is going to happen, he's sure it will happen soon, then the camera fades to the Big Blue House night scene, and again to Bear turning the attic light off for the first time.
- Shadow does not appear in this part of the special, but at the beginning of Part 2.
- This is the last episode that Bear turns off the attic light when the camera is in the attic. In the later episodes, the camera will be outside the attic balcony when he turns off the attic light once.
- This is the first episode that Jennifer Barnhart is credited. It's also the first that Deborah Mayer is Line Producer and to have tape at Silver Screen Studios at Chelsea Piers NY.
