Hi, does anyone remember this 80's or early 90's kid's show which has eluded me for the longest time. It had live-action people dressed up in full animal costumes, with the animals living in cottages in a forest. The only animals I can remember are a big goose and possibly a bear. They would visit each others cottages, get into scrapes and try and solve them I think. The forest looked very real to me, it didn't look like one of those fake sets. I think it might've been a Canadian, English or French kid's show. The intro of the show was a wide shot of the forested area, and it would slowly pan closer into the trees and down to the cottages of the animals. There might've been a pond somewhere. Please help! This was my favorite show and for the life of me I can't find it. Only one of my friends remembers it, so I definitely didn't imagine up the whole thing, but I'm assuming it wasn't hugely popular.
Also, I'm very sure it wasn't Zoobilee Zoo, Bananas in Pajamas, Bear in the Big Blue House, Dumbo's Circus, Pooh's Corner, Mother Goose tales, The Banana Splits, or the Elephant Show. I'm pretty sure it wasn't Polka Dot Door/Polka Dot Shorts either.
Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
