I don't watch Bear in the Big Blue House regularly, but I still enjoy it. Especially Tutter. So, he's a manic little mouse. He cracks me up. However, there are a few characters I don't particularly care for. Ojo is one of them. She kind of irritates me, but I guess it's a personality thing. I also find the puppet to be kind of nondescript. Pip and Pop aren't my faves either. I think it has to do with the Barney purple coloring. Shadow isn't high on my list either. But I absolutely love Bear, Treelo, Luna and Tutter. Wonderful puppetry and loads of personality. The puppets are very attractive as well. I wish the show had more complexity, but it's a kid's program. Nonetheless nobody should be shunned for being passionate about it - especially not on a Muppet forum. Bear is a charming program. Henson should be very proud of it. I have read somewhere that the concept was actually created by Jim Henson. Is that correct or is that a mistake?
