Bear in the Big Blue House

Show Summary

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Bear in the Big Blue House guide at!
Bear in the Big Blue House recently returned to Playhouse Disney with a new episode week, airing from April 24-28, 2006. The new episodes have ended now, but you can still catch repeats of the fourth season of the program (including the new episodes) on weekends.
This guide is in the process of being updated! Keep watching for more episode summaries and other details.
Bear in the Big Blue House is a very popular children's show based on a bear that learns and explores through the lessons of each episode! With help from his friends Luna, Tutter, Shadow, Pip & Pop, Treelo and Ojo, Bear takes us into a world of imagination as we learn new things like music, dancing, and colors!

In each episode of Bear in the Big Blue House, Bear welcomes viewers in and tells them that he thinks they smell good! Viewers then join Bear as he helps out his friends in the Big Blue House and joins them in fun-and-games. Tutter loves cheese and can sometimes be very opinionated and fussy, but he's also ready with a cheerful "Thank you, Bear!" when Bear helps him out. Ojo's a bear cub who definitely looks up to Bear. She can be a bit shy and nervous at times, but Bear and all of her friends help her to learn new things. Pip and Pop are otters who just *love* a good time. Whether they're hanging out at the otter pond or playing in the bathtub, these two are always ready for fun. Treelo, a lemur, swings from vine-to-vine, but enjoys popping into the Big Blue House as well. Shadow's hard to find, but if you help Bear to sing her song ("Where-o, where-o, where is Shadow?"), she might just appear with a story! These stories are sometimes completely zany, sometimes very musical, but always great fun. Finally, late at night, Bear always visits the attic to talk with his long-time friend, Luna. Luna and Bear reflect on the events of the day and then join each other in singing "The Goodbye Song."

The fourth season of the show saw great changes, as Bear in the Big Blue House branched out a bit. Tutter began attending mouse school and the characters began exploring the neighborhood of Woodland Valley more. Ojo began riding her bike and went on journeys. Viewers met many new friends, but many of the same familiar elements of the show remained as well.
Bear in the Big Blue House was a part of Playhouse Disney's daytime line-up for many years. Currently, repeats can only be seen on weekends at 6:30 A.M., usually of the fourth season of the show (generally excepting holiday episodes.) However, you can still catch Bear himself weekday mornings at 6:30 A.M. on Playhouse Disney's "Breakfast With Bear" --- as he joins preschoolers in their morning routines.

Bear in the Big Blue House is also available on video and DVD. Look for a number of releases, most containing three episodes, with more possibly to come. You can also find Bear in the Big Blue House books --- both original stories and some based on TV episodes. Check your local bookstore, library, or online merchants. Three Bear in the Big Blue House albums have been released --- the third being a compilation of songs from the first two. A few other songs are available on Playhouse Disney compilation albums. Other merchandise is available as well --- check secondhand merchants and eBay.

  • Bring back the humanity

    I agree with the user "bringbearback". Bring back the show. My childhood went straight down the void after the episodes ended. My spirit has to be lighten up again by this show. Please.
  • Best Playhouse Disney Show.

    Bear In The Big Blue House is easily one of the greatest educational shows to show a child in my opinion. It's fun, and quirky while teaching kids the ups and downs of everyday life. Bear is the ideal main character for a kids show. He is kind, easy-going, and fun shows characters now-a-day should take a lesson from the Big Bear. And the music and puppeteering just are perfect. Bear is one of the best educational productions to come out of a channel.moreless
  • use to like it when i was young... now it just scares me.

  • Bring Bear In The Big Blue House, BACK PLEASE!!

    I loved this show! I've seen all of the episodes since I was a little baby, and now since I'm 13 it is no longer on tv. I feel like my whole childhood has been washed away by a hurricane. All I ask for someone to do is just allow the shows that have already been aired back on to tv. Will someone please put Bear In The Big Blue House back on the air again, and you don't have to make new ones just rerun the old ones, please.moreless
  • Wonderful, beautiful show

    I absolutely loved this show for my children. It played at just the right time in the morning when my eldest daughter was due to go for her morning nap. We would watch the last bit together and I would sing along with the goodbye song which was the signal for her nap. I loved, loved, loved those few moments together and it will remain one of my fondest memories. I also adored Shadow's lullaby and recently acquired it after searching for it for years (my daughter is 10 now). I loved Bear (and I loved his house!) and the simple wholesome storylines, probably more than my kids did!moreless
