The Early Bear Gets the... Worm?

(4 out of 5 stars)
""Early to Bed, Early to Rise" is another in a series of "Bear in the Big Blue House" video releases ported to DVD. This DVD includes two episodes from the video release --- "Go to Sleep" and "Morning Glory" and adds in "A Winter's Nap."
"Go to Sleep"
Ojo stays over for the night at the Big Blue House. Bear helps her to get to sleep and then decides to turn in himself, when the doorbell rings. It turns out that his friends Jeremiah and Doc Hog have shown up for a card game, which Bear completely forgot about. Now Bear has to take care of them, while also seeing that Ojo isn't disturbed, as well as Tutter, who's sleeping in his mousehole. Featuring a great song from Shadow, "Rockabye," about how shadows watch over you at night.
Bear helps everybody in the Big Blue House to get up in the morning after a sleepover, but some have more trouble rising than others. Once everybody is up, though, they're ready and raring for morning activities --- but not before enjoying a nice breakfast. Treelo just wants to play, play, play, but Bear and everyone else manage to convince him that it would be better to have some breakfast first. Featuring an old-favorite "Bear in the Big Blue House" song --- "Brush Brush Bree."
"A Winter's Nap"
Winter has come to Woodland Valley and Bear would like nothing more than a nice nap. However, he never quite seems to make it to the nap, as he has to help out his friends in the Big Blue House. Sleep evades Bear, but his friends have a nice surprise for him.
Like all of the other "Bear in the Big Blue House" DVDs, there aren't really any good special features on this. You only get the option to jump to songs from the episodes and previews for other Disney TV Shows and movies."
Safety in the Shadows

"I watch this video almost every day with my 10 month old - it's part of her bedtime routime to watch the nightime episode - and I love to sing Shadow's song to her as we watch it - it is such a beautiful song... and my husband loves to sing "Good Morning" with her when we wake up... this is by far our favorite Bear video - and we have many! :)"
Some of Bear's Best
Alicia Jeffrey | 07/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Of the eight Bear videos we have purchased, this is our favorite!I would recommend this tape solely on the basis of the character variety (we get to meet some of Bear's other friends like Ray the sun, Doc Hogg, and Jeremiah the turtle), but that's not what made me want to buy the tape. The most compelling reason to purchase this tape is the beautiful song Shadow sings in the first episode "Go To Sleep". Shadow's stories are usually corny and funny twists on nursery rhymes, but never until now have I been so moved emotionally by any of her scenes. This entirely beautiful song teaches children to be comforted by shadows when they try to go to sleep, not to be frightened by them.Our 23-month old loves watching Bear, and this is one of his 2 favorite Bear tapes along with volume 1 of the series. We as parents loved this tape as the best of the bunch."
20-month old son loves Ray

"My son loves Bear and the Big Blue House. Previous videos did not include his favorite character, Ray, enough. This one has a lot of the characters involved in the segments that aren't normally seen. I would recommend Bear to all parents. Each segment usually tries to convey an important lesson to the children."
