Terrified, the cubs lose their balance, and begin to fall from the tree. They are saved from injury, though, by landing in the enormous hand of Bigpaw. Instead of hurting them, Bigpaw gently places them safely upon the ground and the cubs immediately realize that Bigpaw is not a creature to fear. Meanwhile, back at the village square, Papa has gathered members of Bear Country, rallying a group of citizens to seek out Bigpaw and "get him before he gets us".

Brother and Sister try to tell Papa of Bigpaw's kindness, but he doesn't listen. Up on the mountain, Bigpaw was setting in for his nap when he heard the sound of the angry mob approaching.
Afraid of the approaching bears, Bigpaw built a tall stack of boulders to use as weapons against the approaching mob until Sister and Brother intervene, placing themselves between Bigpaw and the angry members of Bear Country. Bigpaw holds back his tower of rock, gently picks up Brother and SIster, who explain how kind the giant is.

Mama interprets this as a sign that the Thanksgiving Legend of Bigpaw is coming to pass.
According to Mama, when bears grow greedy and do not share in the bounties of nature, Bigpaw will come destroy Bear Country. Papa believes the story to be nonsense. Papa considers himself a bear "for all seasons", telling the cubs how he takes care of the Earth and all of its creatures year round - and especially on days like Easter, Christmas, and Arbor Day.
But when it comes to Thanksgiving, Papa seems to care more about eating a feast than giving thanks.
Meanwhile, Mama continues the Thanksgiving preparations at home "Thankfulness". While visiting a pumpkin patch, Papa learn that the terrifying Bigpaw is real and is on the move through Sinister Bog.
