Every week ICTMN is posting a different episode of the Lakota language version of Berenstain Bears, or Mat?ó Waú?šila Thiwáhe—The Compassionate Bear Family. While it is a children's cartoon, the goal of recreating this well-known show in Lakota is to help revitalize the language, so adults can brush up on their Lakota, or learn the language with their children.

In this episode, Mama and Papa allow Sister to attend a slumber party at Lizzy's house after she assures them that she is responsible, but it turns out the party is not being supervised by Lizzy's parents, the Bruins, but a babysitter. When nearly every cub in town shows up the party gets out of hand and the Bruins return to see this. They call all the parents and send the cubs home.
