When the family next door moves away, Papa, Mama and the cubs all hope their new neighbors will be just like their old ones. But when the new neighbors turn out to be nothing at all like the old ones, the Bear Family has trouble adjusting and can't seem to warm up to them. But, by focusing on who their new neighbors are instead of who they aren't, the Bear Family learns to appreciate their differences and realizes the new neighbors are just as great as the old ones - in their own way.
Differences From the Book
- In the book, the story was about a family of pandas moving next door. In the cartoon, it was only just bears.
- The first sentence at the beginning of the episode was: "Uh-oh, some neighbors have moved away!" But Mama narrated in the cartoon "Uh-oh, some neighbors moved away".
