"My son is 11 months old and we started out watching Bear because it gave me 20 minutes of "get-ready" time in the morning. Now Bear is his FAVORITE of all the Playhouse Disney shows. He could care less about Pooh or Jo-Jo, etc.
This DVD gives 3 episodes where dancing is the key! The first episode is about each character playing an instrument (spoons, kazoo, rain-stick, pots & pans) and being a part of an orchestra.
The second episode is about a day that is supposed to be a restfull one in the house, but Treelo wants to dance! He gets everyone into the mood and they dance all day! (They are visited near the end of the show by Tutter's Grandma Flutter).
In the third episode Bear wakes up with the CHA-CHA-CHA song in his head but he can't remember all of the rhythm! OH NO! Throughout the show each character takes a chance at helping him but in the end it's Shadow and Tutter who help Bear find his rhythm.
And if you've never watched Bear before, don't listen to the hype about Shadow...she's just the "shadow" of a classic muppet girl on the wall who sings and jokes with Bear. She offers a story-in-song within each episode which is actually a Nursery Rhyme. Yes, it is black and white and the objects are paper cut-outs...but it's only about a minute and a half of the entire show and my kid loves it anyway. It's a drastic contrast from the bright colors and that really gets his attention. I think Disney did great finding this Bear and his home!! Good luck!"
Not the same.....VERY DIFFERENT!

"Bear is one of the coolest creations from Mouse House & Henson for some time. The episodes are colourful, lively and moral. Each episode begins in a very similar way which has caused the confusion of others, but this groovy DVD is all new and the episodes are musical in content. Okay at 24 years of age I shouldn't confess to liking this, but it 'sure smells good'. I love Luna too!"
We love bear!

"This collection of 2 Bear in the Big Blue House episodes centers on music in the first and dancing in the second. My 3 year old particularly likes the dancing episode, because it has a lot of fun and different music. It has taught him things like what a "trio" and a "clarinet" are, and the fun of making music with ordinary things like wooden spoons and pots when we all get to join Ojo's orchestra down at the otter pond. Good times! I also aprreciate the different styles of music that are presented and how they show that we can enjoy all kinds of music. If your child likes Bear in the Big Blue House, particularly when Bear sings, they are sure to like this one!"
Bear is awesome...and he's in SPANISH, too!

"Bear is so much more enjoyable than some of the other kiddie fare out there. We love the songs, his gentle, caring nature and his silly sniffing! You can not go wrong with bear. This one is great for the little ones that like to "get down"! As a bonus, this one (and quite a few of the others) has a spanish soundtrack for those wishing to raise their children bilingually. I love it! (The only problem there is that while Bear may say "manzanas" the word "apples" shows up on the screen.) Bear is simply the best. We are cuckoo for Bear in this house. :)"
