Status: Partially Found

Breakfast with Bear was a spin-off of the popular Playhouse Disney show, Bear in the Big Blue House. It aired on the Disney Channel block, Playhouse Disney from June 20, 2005[1] to September 15, 2006.[2] Interestingly, the show was also brought to the regular Disney Channel sometime in 2006; proof can be seen in a bumper down below. Each episode consisted of Bear traveling to different kids' homes and aiding the child "with their daily preparations, hygienical needs, games, songs, breakfast and other daily traditions."

History

On March 12, 2003, the voice actress for Luna of Bear in the Big Blue House, Cherlynne Thigpen had passed away due to a cerebral hemorrhage.[3] As this event occurred during the airing of the fourth season, eight episodes of the main series that were set to air were put on hold until 2006, creating a three year hiatus.[4] During the hiatus, Disney Channel executive, Nancy Kanter called for a spin-off series to be made.[5]

Availability

20 episodes in total were produced. 10 were made in New York, and another 10 were made in California.[5] Currently, less than half of the episodes are available to view on the internet.
