Fans have asked, and now it looks like they’re getting their wish!
Disney has announced that Seasons 1-4 of “Bear in the Big Blue House” will release on Disney+ in the United States on Wednesday, October 19, 2022. This beloved show brings so much nostalgia and people have been hoping that it would eventually be on Disney+, including me!
About the show- “Bear in the Big Blue House” is an American children’s television series created by Mitchell Kriegman and produced by Jim Henson Television for Disney Channel’s Playhouse Disney preschool television block. Debuting on October 20, 1997, it aired its last episode on April 28, 2006. Reruns of the program continued to air until May 6, 2007.
The show follows Bear, who lives in the Big Blue House where he is caregiver for his friends bear cub Ojo, mouse Tutter, lemur Treelo, otters Pip, Pop, and narrator Shadow. He and his friends have many adventures together. Those normally include solving problems, sharing, cooperating with each other, and developing social/life skills.
Each episode opens with the welcome song and appearance of the characters. Each show focuses on a theme (ex; “sleep”, “doctors”, “Thanksgiving”) which folds into a lesson at the end. Songs and jokes accompany the episode. The character “Shadow” narrates a segment with shadow puppets in each episode. Most of the segments are in song, while some are simply a short story relating to the episode’s theme. At the end of the program, Bear sings the goodbye song with Luna, the moon.
I know for me, I’m excited to see Bear coming back for a new generation to see! My son loved this show when he was little! What do you think of this addition to Disney+?
