This Little Light of Mine is the first story from the 23rd episode of Season 2 and the 69th story overall of PB&J Otter. In this story, Peanut and Jelly capture a lightning bug one evening. When Butter notices how sad the bug appears to be stuck in a small jar on the window sill, she decides to set him free. It was based on the traditional children's folk song of the same name released as a single from the Rise and Shine album by Raffi.
