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 20th, 2005[1] to September 15th, 2006.[2] Each episode had Bear travelling to different kids' homes and aiding the child "with their daily preparations, hygienical needs, games, songs, breakfast and other daily traditions."


On March 12th, 2003, the voice actress for Luna of Bear in the Big Blue House, Cherlynne Thigpen 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]


Twenty episodes in total were produced. Ten were made in New York, and another ten were made in California.[5] Currently, less than half of the episodes are available on the internet. In March of 2023, user YoshiKiller2S discovered that every episode of Breakfast with Bear was encoded and shared on file-sharing platforms in the mid-2000s. Yoshi was not able to 100% confirm the group responsible, but believes it to be the former encoding group "W4F."
