Will Disney ever focus on Bear in the Big Blue House again?

    It would probably be a cartoon though. :sympathy:

    Thread bump, but to be honest, I was just thinking.

    Considering so many shows have gotten reboots for nostalgia.... I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we get one in the future, whether Noel performs the bear again or not.

    Noel is still in enough shape to perform Bear, he still performs Big Bird whenever Matt or Peter cannot do it.

    Why don't they just put the old episodes on the air again? They're well produced, and still very relevant to modern society. Bear still does well in other countries anyway.

    Probably cause most shows that get syndicated for nostalgia just get dumped straight online now. :smirk:

    @LittleJerry92 That'd be fine too, really. Maybe for Disney's upcoming streaming service. They might not do it right off the bat, but if what they come out with is enough to gain a good membership base, then they should definitely consider pulling Bear out of hibernation.

    No it wont happen.

    The show has done it's job with production that if Disney needed to rerun episodes they can. And the fact that they wanted to move forward with other Playhouse Disney shows (with the hugely popular Mickey Mouse Clubhouse airing a year after Bear ended in 2007)

    Loosing Lynn Thigpen probably cost the show at least another season.

    But the show still makes a fair profit from DVD sales. So you never know but I wouldn't hold your breath

    However WE NEED A SHOW LIKE THIS



    WE NEED A SHOW THAT RESPECTS ALL CHILDREN. THAT IS GENTLE AND DOESN'T PATRONISE THEM.


    We need a show that can be loved by children and parents so that they can watch it together. We need a show that everyone can feel welcomed in the world.
    And if bear is not the answer anymore. SOMEBODY PLEASE PICK UP THE SHOW ME SHOW! GIVE NOEL THE CHANCE TO REVIVE CHILDRENS TV AGAIN

    I kind of question if this was an actual reason the show ended. I mean, yes Luna was in every episode (give or take), but Lynne just did the voice, as far as I know she wasn't doing the voice physically on set and working alongside the rest of the cast on a regular basis. And even so, I don't think she was a major part of the production of the show, like a producer or a writer, so I don't think production would've taken a significant hit. I doubt it would've been totally out of the question to just recast Luna.

    I'm pretty sure all of Lynn's lines for Luna were dubbed over via voice-overs.

    Yeah Peter Linz performed the puppet, Luna.

    I'm a huge fan of Bear in the Big Blue House ever since I was a little kid. I really hope Disney brings back this amazing show either on Disney plus or Disney JR. I also recently emailed the awesome Noel MacNeal and he said its a very likely scenario Disney brings back Bear.

    Yes, we've heard that Bear in the Big Blue House may be returning on the new Disney+ streaming service. It would be great to see all the episodes available again, especially those never released on DVD or VHS.

    It would be really nice to see the show return again.

    It would be great if it went onto Disney plus but...

    There is nothing like this on children's tv anymore. Air the show again. They have 4 years worth of content to air. And if not make a completly new show. With the same values and warm feeling. Something that isn't forced down childrens throats. Something that is gentle and generally an nice show

    I was just thinking - if this series gets a complete series DVD release, it’d probably be through Shout Factory.

    That’s assuming they give them permission to release it.

    Bear Dvds still sells very well on Amazon. So releasing the full series isn't a crazy idea

    The issue with Disney is just how unpredictable (but also predictable too, in some cases) when it comes to how they feel with their own media.

    Disney to me is pretty much like Toei Animation in Japan - being very cautious of certain movies/shows but not caring about what they would do at all with others (and in this case, the muppets).

    But, hey. Maybe we could he surprised in the future.
