Movie Reviews

Repackaged Content Still Pleases
George Buttner | Dayton, Ohio United States | 11/01/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Little Bear: Halloween Stories" is the only "Little Bear" DVD release for 2006. Although it's not immediately evident, this DVD is actually just a rerelease with additional stories of content already released on VHS. The main four featured stories that are part of the Halloween theme were all released on the VHS "Little Goblin Bear" (which I own) way back in 1999.

That said, this is still a great show. There's actually lot of content on this DVD --- around 75 minutes worth. In a smart move, each individual story is accessible from the main menu and the full opening and closing plays for each story --- so you / your kids have the choice of whether to watch it or fast-forward through it. Unfortunately, other than promos for other Nick Jr. releases, there are no special features.

Besides the Halloween-themed stories (which are "Goblin Night," "Moonlight Serenade," "How to Scare Ghosts" and "Thunder Monster"), there are also eight other stories. I'm pretty sure most of these have been released before, but there may be one or two that haven't previously been seen on home video. "Exploring" is a very early and nice "Little Bear" story in which Little Bear heads up an expedition. Two other particularly noteworth ones are "The Campfire Tale" (in which Little's Bear's Uncle Rusty tells a story) and "Duck Loses Her Quack" (in which Duck tries to teach ducklings quacking.) The other stories are "Under the Covers," "Night of the Full Moon," "Up All Night," "Little Sherlock Bear" and "Detective Little Bear."

One bit of warning --- the stories on this are so wonderfully relaxing that you or your kids might end up falling asleep! Not because it's boring --- it's anything but, but just because the overall tone, coloring and characters are very pleasant and relaxing. The only other show like this that I think offers real competition in this category is "Maisy."

Oh, and I didn't notice any changes in the theme music."
They changed the theme music in this one!

"I love Little Bear for my 3 year old. It DOES calm down little boys. But I was disappointed that they changed the theme music. Don't "they" realize that children need routine - my little boy jumps for joy when he hears the old theme music. We put this on today all excited to see the Halloween episodes and he was quite upset the music was different - en is still Little Bear but just a little different."
Wonderful Seasonal DVD

"If I didn't already have a special place in my hear for Little Bear, this DVD would put him there. I have it in the DVD player from September through Thanksgiving. It is worth the price for the segment called "Moonlight Serenade". I get goosebumps every time I hear snippets of the music.
I should also mention that my children like it too. :)"
Sweet, but a bit scary for the little ones
