Maurice Sendak's Little Bear

Show Summary

Little Bear is the story of, what else, than a little bear (voice of Kristin Fairlie). He has many adventures with all his friends, including Duck, Cat, Owl, Hen, Emily, Emily's doll - Lucy, No Feet the Snake, Mitzi the monkey and Tutu the Dog! Little Bear is always getting into trouble and adventure! He has emotional feelings - he is sad, bold, mad, etc. The show is a nice way to teach children about feelings of life. It will give them courage, pride, honor and more in their life. For nearly the last decade this delightful show has entertained children of all ages including their parents. This animated series is based on the popular children's books illustrated by Maurice Sendak and written by Else Holmelund Minarik. Little Bear is about the spirited adventures of a curious young cub and his animal friends. Written from a child's point of view, the series celebrates the playful and sometimes enchanted aspects of the everyday activities and important moments in a pre-schooler's life. Though often rooted in the everyday, other stories are based on elements of Little Bear's imagination. At times, Little Bear may be seen flying, or even exploring the moon. Each episode consists of 3 seven-and-a-half minute stories. Each story follows an adventure, a game or an act of imagination in Little Bear's day. Little Bear once aired on Nick Jr. in the United States. You can now catch it twice daily on Noggin. Morning timeslots tend to vary, but the afternoon timeslot has remained the same --- 5:30 P.M. eastern.

    Little Bear is not just for young children, but it is a show that is just about for anyone. The show is about 20 years old, and it still feels like it's so new and interesting. This might be my favorite cartoon show ever. I watched this show when I was five or six, and watching it again, nearing 20 years of age, I almost cried when I watched the theme song on YouTube. This show does not shove lessons into your face like most of the preschool-oriented programming of nowadays. Little Bear is a much simpler show that relies on simple, to-the-point storytelling in order for the viewers to sympathize with what is going on, and to learn valuable lessons. Even the film that was made in 2001 is just as awesome (albeit extremely faithful) as the show. I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend this show for anyone to watch, whether you're 2 years old or you're 100 years old.

    Little Bear is one of those old Nick Jr. shows that I almost forgot how dear it was to me. I watched it a few weeks back late at night once, & feel in love with it all over again. And as I said above, it is still a magical show to this day, no matter what it does. Kids from today can watch this show & learn to be creative & imaginative with themselves, & learn plenty of morals that the shit on Disney Channel doesn't show.



    It is also one of the very few shows that thankfully hasn't been redone using any of that CGI animation shit, like Franklin, & Angelina Ballerina (which look awful).moreless
  • One of Nick jr's Finest shows on the 1990's made by Nelvana. Much better then Franklin and Rupert.

    My 59th review after: Rupert



    This is one of Nelvana's most finest shows I have ever seen in my life. It's very cute and Charming and it's a Classic. Originally Based on the books eariler, and This cartoon sets place around in the Late 1800's Early 1900's, I think. It's about a Brown bear named Little Bear. But what kind of name is THAT?! If he grown, They would STILL call him Little bear?!?! crazy!!! There are also common Animal chracther names bascilly there are his friends all but 2 of his friends of his which one is a Girl and she has a Common Human name like Pam, Jill, Nancy, Her name is Emily, she ,ives with her Grandmother and her dog, Tutu. He has animal friends like: Cat, (does he have an owner and lives with someone? Is he like an Orphan Cat?) Duck, Hen, Owl, and the second one is animal which is a Monkey named Mitzi. *Buzzer sound* That sound means it's time for me to give this here show a Grade. I'll give this show, *Drumroll* An B! That's right. I'm gonna give it a B. Here the results:



    Voice-acting: B+ 8.5/10.0 Terrfic Voice-acting. It should win an Emmy Award.



    Animation: B 7.0/10.0 Cute, Colorful, but a little dirty and Charming.



    Graphics: C 6.0/10.0 Average. Sound: D+ 4.9/10.0 The music's good but the Sound effects are very Annoying.



    Dialouge: A 9.0/10.0 "Umm... Interesting." That cracks me the *beep* Up.



    Eductional Value: A++ 10.0/10.0 PERFECT!!!!!!



    Lasting Appeal: A+ 9.5/10.0 Superb.



    Overall: B 8.0/10.0 One of Nelvana's Finest. They have to bring it back and make new epiosdes on Noggin. One of Nick jr's Cancelled Gems.moreless

    This little bear does stuff with his friends that's a cat,a duck,a owl,a chicken and a girl name Emily.This show is not terrible,it's just that I don't like it.I mean,I've seen it sometimes at 12:00 and it comes on right before I go to bed.Well,I don't do that anymore and I say this show looks a lot like Franklin.I mean,Little Bear is Franklin.I don't know about that but might I say that this show is not that horrible on Noggin.The only shows that are terrible on Noggin is Oobi,Wow Wow Wubbzy,The Upside Down Show,and Ni-ho Kilan and those are the shows that are really terrible on Noggin.moreless
