Status Lost/Existence Unconfirmed

My World was a short approximately 5-minute cartoon that was aired on a Los Angeles PBS station circa 1998. It was produced by Porchlight Entertainment or Lakewood Productions with scroll-down credits. The short was possibly distributed by American Public Television. It should not be confused with the Nick Jr. interstitials from the 2000's.

The short has not surfaced since its original airing. No info is available online, and no footage is known to exist. As of right now there is no proof of its existence, and thus the short's existence is questionable. The main character was a little brown bear wearing a purple shirt, green overalls and shoes. The bear's parents looked nothing like their son. They were human-colored with a long snout, with a possibly German-sounding name

The short took place inside the bear's house, where he showed the audience around, and in one scene, the parents were seated at a table and waving.

The Search for My World

A Lost Media Wiki contributor posted a few search threads other forums in 2011-2012 under a number of user names. The users on those forums suggested cartoons like "Corduroy", "The Ant and the Aardvark", "Babar", "Arthur", "Little Bear", "Rupert", "Petit Ours Brun", and "The Berenstain Bears". However, the description of the short did not perfectly match up with any of these series, and it most likely didn't come from any TV show. Corduroy came the closest, but the contributor specified that there were no humans in My World as far as he could remember (Corduroy's owner was a human girl).

That same contributor also contacted the PBS station (which is no longer affiliated with that network) that he believes aired My World, but the station had no records of that cartoon. Lakewood Productions later sold its catalogue to Amberwood Entertainment. The closest match in Porchlight's and Amberwood's catalogues is The Secret World of Benjamin Bear, a 2003 animated series. Benjamin had already appeared in a few TV movies in the 1990's, which might have caused the user's confusion. APT's website does not show any close matches because all its current cartoons were created after 2004. My World, if it exists, has yet to see the light of day.

I, the writer of this article, have spent 18 years looking for this short and will try to do a rough drawing of the main character and his parents.

I took a look at Benjamin (Amberwood and Porchlight's bear), but he didn't look anything like my vision. I might check out the "Teddy Bears' Scare" and "Teddy Bears' Picnic" movies though.

Sadly, no. I've been extremely busy with my university work this semester.

This is starting to start like a hoax, honestly.

Then how come every time anyone has asked you if you have finished the "rough drawing" you say you haven't gotten to it? Hasn't there been multiple breaks in between semesters (for example, Christmas, Easter/Spring, etc.)? If it truly is a hoax, then please, for the love of god, just admit to it...

However, if you still think that it is real, I would like to ask you how old you think you were when you saw the short? Do you remember any specific plot to the short? Anything else that you haven't put in the wiki entry yet?

Okay, I've uploaded a drawing of the main character. I was four/five years old when I first saw the short, and all I remember about the plot was that it took place inside the kid's house.
