I work at home as a freelance writer. I enjoy reading, writing, and television.
Bears are cuddly and cute. Maybe that's why they appear on many popular cartoon shows for kids. Here I have listed several cartoon bear shows, all with "bear" in the title. There are of course others that many know and love, like Winnie the Pooh, Corduroy, etc, but they are not depicted here.
"The Yogi Bear Show"
Yogi gets into trouble a lot by stealing picnic baskets and trying to escape from the park. Ranger Smith is always trying to stop him, and Boo Boo tries to help Yogi by teaching him to do right.
Movies were also made about these characters.
"The Berenstain Bears"
The show is about 4 Bears - Papa, Mama, Brother, and Sister. Papa Bear is a carpenter who loves his family and believes he's an expert on almost everything. Mama Bear is president of the Bear Country Garden Club and is very friendly, kind, and smart. Sister Bear has a lot of energy, loves pink and loves her Bearbie. Brother Bear loves soccer and is a fan of dinosaurs and model airplanes.
The series was featured again in 2003 for 3 seasons. You can currently watch the show on Amazon Prime Video.
The Care Bears look after the children on earth. They live in the sky in a colorful place called Care-A-Lot. Each bear has a special power, related to the symbol on its tummy. When they unite, they can use the Care Bear Stare to beam good energy at their enemies.
This show was one of my favorites as a child. It has since been reimagined in different versions. In 2007, Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot aired for two seasons. Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot aired for one season in 2012. You can watch the 2015 version, Care Bears & Cousins, on Netflix. It has two seasons.
Care Bears: Unlock the Magic, is the current version. It began in 2019 on a streaming service known as Boomerang and then played on Cartoon Network.
There are several Care Bears movies as well that are part of the collection.
"Adventures of the Gummi Bears"
The Gummi Bears meet a boy with a Gummi Bear medallion which unlocks the Great Book of Gummi. The book reveals lost knowledge of their past. Now the bears are trying to rediscover their heritage with the help of a few trusted humans while fighting off enemies like Duke Igthorn.
You can currently watch the Gummi Bears on Disney+.
Little Bear and his other animal friends laugh, play, and explore the way any child would. Sometimes the story shows what they're actually doing, and other times they're in a world of imagination.
"Bear in the Big Blue House"
Bear loves to learn and explore. With help from his friends Luna, Tutter, Shadow, Pip & Pop, Treelo and Ojo, Bear takes us into a world of imagination as we learn about things like music, dancing, and colors.
This was a favorite show of my little sister's. It aired on Playhouse Disney.
"Masha and the Bear"
Masha, a 6 year old girl, lives in a house near a path to Bear's house. He is a retired circus bear. They meet and quickly become best friends. The show was originally created in Russia but has since been made into an English version. It's available on Netflix and can be seen on TV on UniversalKids.
"Goldie & Bear"
Goldie Locks, who's only 11, becomes best friends with baby bear, Jack, who's 8, after the incident at his house. They have many adventures in Fairy Tale Forest with the other friends they meet.
The show aired on Disney Junior and can now be seen on Netflix.
"We Bare Bears"
Three bear siblings - Grizzly, Ice Bear, and Panda, attempt to integrate into the human world. They live around San Francisco.
The show aired on Cartoon Network for four seasons. A potential movie may be in the works for 2020/2021.
