"Our five year old son is a huge fan of the Berenstain Bears tv show and has been for the past few years, so when I saw this dvd was being released I went ahead and ordered it for him. He was thrilled to receive it, but not so thrilled when he watched it. He's used to the newer BB shows that you see on pbs/sprout in the evenings, and this one is not really like them at all. There are seven 'episodes' over the 84 minute dvd, and so far we've watched the first four - - not impressed at all! I'll be surprised if my son ever asks to watch this one again.
Papa Bear acts like a total fool most of the time and Mama Bear keeps saying "Oh Papa!" more out of frustration and disappointment than affection. The adults come across as being (shall I say it?) IDIOTS. In the very first episode there's a scam artist in the town that's clearly up to no good and the cubs are the only ones to see it so they have to step into action to save all the adults. Who wants to buy a show for their kids that portrays any adult as a fool? In another episode Papa Bear is acting almost neurotic about carving a pumpkin for a contest and then treats everyone with major suspicion and distrust - even his neighbors and his own family. The biggest problem - they never truly resolve those issues or show anyone learning their lesson like they do in the newer BB shows.
I could go on further, but the bottom line is: If you were a fan of the older BB shows then you may like this. If you're a fan of the newer ones, skip this one altogether. Trust me."
