The Gummi Bears is an animated television program that I used to watch when I was a kid. I believe that it started back in the mid 1980s.
I used to love this show.
I remember that of all the cartoons I used to watch, this was one that my dad would actually go out of his way to watch with me. I know he didn’t really care to watch any of my other programs but this one we enjoyed together.
Last week I found out that this series had been released on DVD. The public library had the box set containing all of the episodes from the first three seasons. Of course, I had to borrow it. I wanted to see if the show still held up after all these years. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it still does.
The story is really well done. The characters are likable and I found that I really got back into the series.
My class had been really well-behaved for the past few weeks so I rewarded them by showing a few episodes of the show on Friday. My students loved it.
I wish this show was still on the air. But you can find it on DVD and I also found it on YouTube.
Here is the premiere episode, in three parts.
