My World
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 presumably 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. Supposedly the main character was a little brown bear wearing a purple shirt, green overalls and shoes. It is also believed that the bear's parents looked nothing like their son. They were possibly human-colored with a German-sounding name, with a long snout.

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.

I haven't had any time to work on the picture because of university.
