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 traveling to different kids' homes and aiding the child "with their daily preparations, hygienical needs, games, songs, breakfast and other daily traditions."

History[edit | edit source]

On March 12th, 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[edit | edit source]

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 to view on the internet.
