The Berenstain Bears is a 2003 children's animated television comedy series based on the children's book series of the same name by Stan and Jan Berenstain. This show was a successor the original 1985 series that aired back then.

Summary

The series is set in a world populated only by anthropomorphic bears and primarily centers around the Berenstain Bears. The Berenstain Bears are a family residing in the rural community of Bear Country consisting of Mama Bear, Papa Bear, Brother Bear, and Sister Bear. Albeit numerous episodes are based on the books and promote the same morals as encouraged in the picture books from which their plots originated, the program's faithfulness to the original series is slightly mixed on account of a number of later episodes following original storylines. Nonetheless, they mostly portray the same environment depicted in the original Berenstain Bears storybooks quite accurately and concentrate on the messages and lessons learned by the family through their different experiences, such as generosity and responsibility, as well as the daily lives of the bears.

Why It Rocks

  1. The character personalities are very unique from each-other, yet still work perfect together.
  2. Very faithful to the books, maybe even better than the books, depending on your point of view.
  3. The show doesn't shove morals in your face, like some cartoons tend to do, but rather carefully placed in the good episodes.
  4. The characters are very likable in their own way.
  5. The storytelling is very good and can appeal to kids and adults.
  6. The plots are simple, yet are able to fill the 30 minute time-slot well.
  7. The voice acting and animation is very fitting for the book, and the coloring is pleasant to look at which was a massive improvement from the 1985 series.
  8. The theme song is very pleasant to listen too.

Bad Qualities

  1. Michael Cera, the voice actor for Brother Bear (who would also be later known for playing Scott Pilgrim), had retired shortly from the show due to the fact that his voice was changing and he was replaced with another actor named Michael D'Ascenzo.
  2. Honey Bear wasn't in the show, who is the youngest bear member of the family and who was also one of the main characters in the books later on.
  3. The show had some censorship in which compared to the books, it didn't necessarily cover any serious topics on like tobacco and violence for example.

Reception

The Berenstain Bears got a 7.4 on IMDB.

Dopictures, it seems that you've only come to these wikis to cause nothing but trouble and disruption. First you added false information on TTVSW then you did vandalism on LCW and now you're vandalizing this page all cause you hate this show. You deserve to be blocked and maybe even globally locked for these terrible things you've done.
