"The Big Sleep" is the twenty-ninth episode of Bear in the Big Blue House. It aired on January 13, 1998.

Summary

It's nighttime at the Big Blue House. Bear takes out the trash. Then, 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 over scheduled tonight that Bear completely forgot about it. 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 his friends some snacks, 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 helps her feel better while helping her get back to sleep by singing the song, "Go to Bed, Sleepy Head", and then finds Shadow. In the Shadow Segment, Shadow sings her own special version of the lullaby "Hush, Little Baby," while trying not to disturb the sleeping characters.
