Set in the rolling hills of Bear Country, this animated comedy stars a fun loving family of honey Bears, Mamma, Pappa, Brother and Sister, whose love, loyalty and humour allow them to overcome any obstacle that finds its way down to their sunny dirt road. The funny, familiar experiences of this bear family are easy for kids to identify with and learn from.
Includes the folowing episodes:
- The Wishing Star- When Mama casually mentions the 'Star light, star bright' principle, Sister takes it to heart and wishes for a certain birthday gift and a better grade on her next math quiz. She gets both. However when the pony she wishes for doesn't materialize, Papa helps Sister understand that she really got her first two wishes all by herself - her special birthday gift because she'd been so helpful around the house and the better math mark because she studied really hard for the quiz. Bolstered by this, Sister makes her pony wish come true by making a deal with Farmer Ben to help him pick his peas in exchange for being allowed to spend time with his retired farm horse Princess.
- The Talent Show- Convinced that he doesn't have any talent to offer for the upcoming school talent show, Brother is recruited to be the talent scout. Guided by Teacher Bob's conviction that everyone has talent, Brother helps the other cubs discover their own special talents, and in so doing, discovers he also has a talent just as Teacher Bob suspected - a talent for finding talent.
- Too Much Junk Food- Papa and the cubs decide to train together for the Annual Bear Country Run, but find their performance level isn’t increasing the way that it should. Dr. Grizzly informs them that exercise is important, but so is a healthy diet. When Papa and the cubs put away the junk food and eat more nutritious foods, their energy level is given the boost it needs to run the big race.
- The Baby Chipmunk- When she adopts a baby chipmunk, Sister learns the hard way about trying to keep a non-domestic animal as a house pet. As a baby, all the chipmunk does is eat and sleep. However, the bigger it grows, the more active it gets, and the more mess it makes, and the more trouble it causes. Of course none of it's intentional. That's just the creature's nature. But when it accidentally bites Papa, Sister finally realizes that if she really loves Little Brown Eyes, she'll do what's best for the chipmunk and return him to the outdoors where he belongs.
