Count Their Blessings is the second episode of season 1 in The Berenstain Bears, which aired on January 7, 2003. In this episode, Brother and Sister grow jealous of what their friends have and asks Mama and Papa to get them the same things. They then learn to be grateful for what they have as a thunderstorm rolls in.


Brother and Sister often complain that their friends have more things than they do. Mama and Papa tell them they should be thankful for all the things they do have. When a big thunderstorm rages outside and the power goes out, the cubs are reminded of how fortunate they are to have loving parents and a cozy home to live in. It’s a good time to count their blessings.
