Bear in the Big Blue House was a puppet TV series made by the Jim Henson Company for Playhouse Disney. The show debuted in 1997 and ended in 2006.

The show aired episodes regularly until 2003, when the actress for the character Luna, Lynne Thigpen, had suddenly died, and the show was put on hiatus. In the meantime, Breakfast with Bear aired in its place.

The show returned in 2006 and aired its last 8 episodes. Despite airing in 2006, only one of these episodes has been found in English.


The show focused on the adventures of Bear and his friends as they explored the town of Woodland Valley. They would encounter a problem in each episode which would often be solved with the help of family members and friends.

The show was very similar in style to Mister Roger's Neighborhood. Each episode had a different theme, with segments flowing from one to another, and each episode usually having at least one unique song. Every episode had a segment with Shadow, a living shadow girl played by Tara Mooney, and a segment with Luna, the Moon, played by Lynne Thigpen.


Many episodes are found in other languages, but 32 of the show's original English episodes are currently missing.
