Product Description

Pre-schoolers, along with their parents, laugh and learn with Bear in the Big Blue House, the hit pre-school show from The Jim Henson Company. Featuring an insatiably curious seven-foot bear and his house full of lovable friends, Bear in the Big Blue House threads together imagination, music, exploration and creativity. Included on this DVD are three great shows that will help children overcome their fears about visiting the doctor and show the importance of being healthy:

The Big Blue House Call
It's check up day in the Big Blue House and everyone's getting ready for the arrival of Doc Hogg. Tutter, Pip, Pop and Ojo have lots of questions about their bodies, but Bear reassures them that there's no need to worry.

Picture of Health
Bear persuades Tutter and Pip & Pop that it's not only food and exercise that makes us feel healthy--he explains that when you are tired, a rest can refresh you and make you feel stronger.

That Healing Feeling
Tutter has hurt his tail so Bear takes him to Doc Hogg's office to make him feel better. Tutter is frightened to start with but after a song and some time in Doc Hogg's toy-filled waiting room, Bear congratulates him on being brave.

Running time: 72 minutes approximately.


Bear in the Big Blue House, Happy and Healthy is a cheerful and lively 48-minute video packed with songs, stories and information for two to seven year olds. Produced by The Jim Henson Company, this two-episode video features Disney Channel's favourite seven foot Bear and his colourful muppet friends.

The first episode "The Big Blue House Call" attempts to tackle children's fear of the doctor. When Doc Hogg pays a visit, Bear explains to his friends the importance of check-ups and with a song he coaxes Ojo the frightened bear cub from under the bedclothes for his vaccination. The second show "Picture of Health" emphasises that rest is as important to good health as a balanced diet and exercise. Bear successfully advises exhausted mouse Tutter that he will feel stronger and refreshed if he takes a short sleep.

Youngsters will quickly warm to Bear who is friendly, confident, curious and cuddly. He encourages a participatory mood with his young audience by moving very close to the camera and talking directly to them. He even claims he can smell his healthy young viewers! Songs play an important part in setting the pace. Each episode starts with the cast belting out "Welcome to the Blue House" and finishes with the striking image of Bear on the balcony and the moon character Luna singing a harmonious duet. There are three additional original songs per episode, many with funny and memorable lyrics.

Visually stimulating and mentally engaging, youngsters will find this educational video lots of fun.--Tracy Hogan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This DVD contains 3 episodes of the show. It tackles issues that can be difficult to explain to pre-schoolers: such as how to cope with the apprehension of any medical examination/treatment, why we suffer the short-lived pain of an innoculation, etc. All of the issues are explored by the Bear and his little friends in a very gentle and caring way. There's plenty to learn for adults too and lots of music and humour for adults and children to enjoy together - making it a very entertaining experience. Full marks to this product!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't have asked for a better Bear dvd!! 1 Oct 2005
By A Customer
My daughter is obsessed with this dvd. Understandable though as it is fun, educational, and a really good watch. It includes a number of sing-a-long songs which are so catchy that we know them off by heart! It is a must buy!
