The Plot and Episode Format

Little Bear

The characters are chiefly anthropomorphic animals that show both human and animal behaviors. But in the episodes, human concerns and problems are generally addressed and dealt with using these characters. The episodes have no fixed recurring format but revolve around these characters presenting some story.

People can learn what it would be like to play outside like Little Bear and his friends always do instead of representing the robotic life that we lead. The rest of the time goes by when having picnics and go-outs. Playing croquet and swimming in the local pools are a part of daily life and probably the most beautiful aspect of this series-Little Bear.
