Bear begins 3rd season production

Courtesy of the Jim Henson Company
April 23, 1999

Production has started in New York at Lifetime Studios on the third season of Bear in the Big Blue House, the critically acclaimed, Emmy-nominated pre-school program created by Jim Henson Television. The third season episodes will begin airing July 1999 on Disney Channel.

Brimming with creativity, learning and music, Bear in the Big Blue House is hosted by a seven-foot bear who exudes warmth, comfort and understanding. Along with his friends - Tutter (the industrious mouse), Treelo (the curious lemur), Pip and Pop (playful twin otters), Ojo (the little girl bear cub) and Luna (the wise moon), Bear teaches young children a real world curriculum. All the action takes place in the Big Blue House where songs are sung, stories are told and imagination and adventure reign. Through creative play, Bear provides a role model for caregivers to stimulate learning in their own houses.

Bear in the Big Blue House is the creation of Mitchell Kriegman, who also directs and executive produces the series. Brian Henson and Alex Rockwell also serve as executive producers.

Bear in the Big Blue House currently airs weekdays at 10:00 a.m. (ET/PT) and 1:00 p.m. (ET/PT) and Saturdays and Sundays at 8:00 a.m. (ET/PT) only on Disney Channel. For additional information on Bear in the Big Blue House, go to www.playhousedisney.com and www.henson.com.
