The Berenstain Bears and the Trouble with Pets is the third episode of season 1 in The Berenstain Bears based on the 1990 book of the same name, which first aired on January 8, 2003.


Brother and Sister adopt one of Farmer Ben’s new puppies and soon discover that having a pet is a big responsibility. When the two pet owners leave to play with friends, the puppy stays behind and destroys the living room. As a result, the puppy is banished to the backyard. Brother and Sister apologize for neglecting their duties and Mama and Papa decide to give the cubs and the puppy a second chance. 

Differences From the Book

  • Brother and Sister were arguing more in the cartoon. They did it in one page in the book.
