Is ‘Bear in the Big Blue House’ Coming to Disney+ Soon?

Ever since Disney+ launched in the US, one show was noticeably missing from the library, “Bear in the Big Blue House.”  Fans have been eager to see the beloved series on the streaming service and even started a petition online earlier this year.  Now, according to a new tease from one of the show’s stars, it looks like fans may get their wish soon.

Noel MacNeal, who played Bear in the Disney series, recently joined Defunctland for their annual Charityland live stream fundraiser and hinted that something could be coming to Disney+ soon. You can see what MacNeal said below:

“I think 2021 is going to be a very good year, and if you have Disney+…be patient,” MacNeal said.

While this is not an official announcement by any means, the quote seems to hint that the series could arrive on Disney+ next year,

“Bear in the Big Blue House” is an American children’s television series created by Mitchell Kriegman and produced by Jim Henson Television for Disney Channel’s Playhouse Disney preschool television block. Debuting on October 20, 1997, it aired its last episode on April 28, 2006. Reruns of the program continued to air until May 6, 2007

The show follows Bear, who lives in the Big Blue House where he is caregiver for his friends bear cub Ojo, mouse Tutter, lemur Treelo, otters Pip, Pop, and narrator Shadow. He and his friends have many adventures together. Those normally include solving problems, sharing, cooperating with each other, and developing social/life skills.

Each episode opens with the welcome song and appearance of the characters. Each show focuses on a theme (ex; “sleep”, “doctors”, “Thanksgiving”) which folds into a lesson at the end. Songs and jokes accompany the episode. The character “Shadow” narrates a segment with shadow puppets in each episode. Most of the segments are in song, while some are simply a short story relating to the episode’s theme. At the end of the program, Bear sings the goodbye song with Luna, the moon.

“Bear in the Big Blue House” is currently not available on Disney+ in any country.
