Three fun stories in the classic Bear format with all your favorite characters and songs. This is not the screwy new version of the newer Bear shows on Disney, which do not center so much on the house itself. Disney seems to be a company that can't resist messing up a successful show or movie format (like all the lame followups to the original Pooh movie, among many other examples.) Again, this disk is from 1997 and it has the original Big Blue House format, with the Goodbye Song ending each episode, etc. Anyway these three stories all relate to cleaning or other chores, one way or another, but are much more fun than that topic would suggest. Also, they are different enough to provide varied entertainment and the DVD navigation allows separate viewing of each episode so you can pace yourself. We had the disk for a while before realizing that we could listen to the songs separately. When we did, our child insisted on repeating them over and over, singing and dancing along and pretty much memorizing them. That was a plus, and the songs are well-done so we didn't mind listening, too. Navigating between individual songs is not as easy as one would expect, but that's not a big deal. The song section was a smart feature for them to add to the DVD. Definitely one of the better additions we've made to our collection, and recommended for any fans of the Big Blue House.
