The one show that came completely out of thin air was the Gummi Bears. I remember Michael saying that his kids had just come back from camp and all they could talk about was this new candy called gummy bears, which is the German for “rubber bears.” And I'm always kind of amazed by this, because he didn't know who I was or anything, but he turned to me and he said, "Make me a show called Gummy Bears."

Yeah, Gummi Bears was kinda nuts in so far as it existed and it din't that surprising that it came about due to Eisner basically aaying "make it happen" because his kid liked the candy.

That said, it was less stupid than it should have been and I have fond memories of it. I think I'll avoid going to watch it on YouTube so I can leave my memories that way.

Even as a child, I found that show deeply cynical and phony, probably the most cynical and phony of all the ensemble-characters shows that I watched. It surprises me not at all that it was made for bizarre reasons by Eisner's fiat, and this fact only makes me yearn for, like, expropriating the rich.

Making (reboot) Darkwing Duck into (reboot) Ducktales' Grey Ghost is fine by me, but I will never forgive Tad Stones for refusing to treat (original) Darkwing Duck as a spinoff of (original) Ducktales purely because he didn't want to deal with continuity. Making shows with syndication in mind so nothing ever changes is the worst kind of television.

I can remember nothing about the characters on Gummi Bears, and yet I can still sing most of the theme song. Like yeah, DuckTales was also catchy, but I keep thinking, I'm going to be forty in a couple years and I'm still going too be waking up with the theme songs from Gummi Bears or Rescue Rangers stuck in my head. Bouncing here and there and everywhere. Help.

Do yourselves a favor and read the Wuzzles copyright infringement decision:
Once upon a time, in lands far, far away, lived strange but cuddly creatures that became involved in a struggle for identity. In "Whatland," which is just a few miles north of Fairyland, lived the "Whats." In the "Land of Wuz" lived the "Wuzzles." We don't know where "Wuz" was, but we are told we could get there if we "snuzzle a Wuzzle."

I'm old enough to remember Linus the Lionhearted, the 60s cartoon based on mascots for Post cereals. (Linus king of the Crispy Critters jungle, Sugar Bear for Sugar Crisp, Lovable Truly the Alpha Bits postman, Rory Raccoon for Post Toasties and the solidly racist SoHi for Rice Krinkles) The whole series disappeared when the FCC passed a rule banning direct tie-ins between products and TV content. Filmation's HeMan and SheRa somehow worked their way around the prohibition a decade and a half later and when the Gummi Bears show appeared I was semi-gobsmacked that Disney pulled off the "almost-but-not-quite-sponsored content" trick (I was also impressed by their voicecasting including Bill Scott, the original voice (and co-creator) of Bullwinkle and June Foray, the original Rocky, Lorenzo "Garfield" Music, Jim "Winnie the Pooh" Cummings, Paul "Tigger AND Dick Dastardly" Winchell, and many more... Even more impressive than the Linus cast, which included already-TV-producers Sheldon Leonard and Carl Reiner, and pre-Laugh-In Ruth Buzzi.

My childhood cartoon theme earworms include Linus, Bullwinkle (1961 theme, there have been several since), Yogi Bear, The Jetsons, Magilla Gorilla, Secret Squirrel, George of the Jungle, Thunderbirds and the Anime OG, AstroBoy (again, 60s version, not any since).

There's a fair amount of precedent for that kind of thing in Hollywood. Didn't George Lucas let his kids name some of the characters in the Star Wars prequels? I'm thinking of you, Count Dooku. But yeah, put that kid's brilliant idea through a tester panel at least, ya silly rich dolt.

Heck, Marvel Comics used to have a comic for several years, ROM Spaceknight, that was based on a shitty toy that failed quickly; io9 called the comic one of the best SF comics ever, which is kind of a stretch, but I was a fan for a good long time.

Something else that caught my eye was "Ricky Rat", which reminded me of Robert Armstrong's Mickey Rat. (If Armstrong or any other artist tried putting that comic out today, Disney would probably sue them into a smoking hole in the ground.)

Family legend: My mother claims that her college German club may have helped introduce Gummi Bears to the Midwest US in the mid-1970s. One year, they decided to sell imported German candy as a fundraiser, and one of the selections in the German candy company catalog was something that none of the students or professors had ever heard of called Gummibärs, which they ordered a couple of cases of just to see what they were. They sold out almost instantly, because everybody on campus was curious to try them. Literally seven or eight years later, suddenly these things are in every candy store and grocery checkout line in the US.

It made me yearn to expropriate the rich because it was so mediocre and rich people shouldn't have the freedom to produce garbage on a whim, not because of its specific messaging - which I recall as cynically moralizing in the style of eighties children's cartoons. (If Eisner thinks the rich are irresponsible, destructive parasites, for instance, he is welcome to give away his money. But he won't - he'll just provide empty moral tales for people who are likely to remain largely unaware of just how rich the rich actually are in this country and just how it impoverishes the rest of us.)

Also, say what you will about actually existing communists, they produced some really good animation.

I think people are getting a little carried away here.

Eisner found out about gummi bears because his son liked them, and said "make a show about this," but gave other people creative control. The creators ignored the candy aspect and instead drew on the vaguely Bavarian drawings on the gummi bear packaging for setting and art direction. The end result was a show about little bears who live in slide through tunnels and drink juice that gives them the ability to bounce on their bottoms. They live in a vaguely medieval world, and live in a house based on Gepetto's workshop.

It's not the world's greatest show, but who cares? I was a kid and I loved it for the setting and the art design.

Like, sometimes a children's TV show is just a children's TV show. "Mediocre" is a subjective term. I loved that show, and it made me very happy as a kid.

We went down a rabbit hole of 90's cartoon openings on you tube once, and found out that entire seasons of Gummi Bears are uploaded to the site. After watching most of the first season with Little Purr, it turns out that it holds up surprisingly well for a cartoon of that era, though maybe not as good as some of the other Disney afternoon lineups. They have a multi-season arc, and "mysterious cousins" over the ocean! Little Purr got distracted by other shows (looking at you Puffin Rock), but I'm interested in revising the series at some point. They do a lot of classical music backgrounds, which was getting phased out in that era, and the princess gets to go on adventures, which is nice. It's not a great show, but does not seem to be entirely visited by the suck fairy, like the original My Little Ponies, which is complete dreck.

We're enjoying the new Ducktails, although the character design had to grow on me. I am totally there for the Disney Afternoons universe as canon, though.

I think it's just easy (and fun!) to bag on Gummi Bears because next to Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers, and Tailspin, it was kind of a weak link in the Disney chain. The theme song was written with the help of some kind of mind control necromancy, so its there in your head still, while Goof Troop was allowed to pass gracefully into cartoon history.

As far as kids shows from the period, it was far from bad, but I don't remember there being a whole lot to distinguish it either.

The Gummi Bears were not high art, nor were they particularly edifying, but I had been watching stuff like The Mighty Hercules when I was younger still, so the Gummi Bears was, comparatively, really good animation and perfectly adequate storytelling.

I was worried that I'd rewatch an episode and be severely disappointed, but no, it's fine. The background art is actually pretty great; lush paintings of woodlands and wood or stone buildings, all with a pretty organic feeling (and in TFA the creators mentioned that they wanted the settings to feel "organic"). The animation is about as OK as everything was then, but the character design is good. The voice actors are all the regular cast of Disney pros (like the beloved Lorenzo Music). The plot is whatever, but I'm also not a child. But just to prove I'm not totally biased by nostalgia (because I obviously am), I will not praise the plot of this, a show aimed at children several decades younger than I am.

All in all, I give Gummi Bears an A, because who cares, it's a dumb kid's TV show and I don't know how to review shit. But I do think the background art is great.

Also, ha ha I just realized I always associated the grumpy one with my uncle.

Ok, yeah. I had somehow forgotten I had watched a ton of Gummi Bears episodes when they first aired but seeing the theme song opener jolted open a big section of closed off neurons right at the long "gummi beaaaaaaaaars" high note. Jesus I watched too much TV as a kid.

As I recall, the Disney Afternoon order of operations went like this (or at least it did on WGN in the Chicagoland area):

Gummi Bears was on first at like 3pm, followed by Rescue Rangers at 3:30pm, then Duck Tales, and finally Talespin, which was my favorite because of all the airplanes and vaguely 1940's art design.

Whenever a new show would debut, all the titles would move down and the first in the order would be phased out, which is why I have basically no memory of The Gummi Bears. I had grown out of the Disney Afternoon by the time Goof Troop came on and bumped off Rescue Rangers.

Nothing was better than being home sick from school and getting to see the WHOLE block from start to finish. Nothing was worse then racing home from school in the spring and turning on the TV only to find a Cubs game that had gone into extra innings.

I think this was slightly before my time, but I watched reruns of these (I remember that stupid dog movie, but not the wuzzles). I remember being in 5th or 6th grade and watching gargoyles. One thing I remember about the Gummi bears was that it had a metaplot like Gargoyles did (which I really liked), unlike most shows what happened in previous episodes changed things.

I'm really sad it never got a 7th season.

Yeah, I didn't mean my comment as a counterpoint! Just that watching the first few minutes of a show where two rich people are shown as bumbling idiots abusing others for their own whims and/or comfort was an interesting juxtaposition after just having learned about the genesis of that show. I read it (probably inaccurately, but) as a form of venting on the part of the writers.


That said, I was struck not just by the less-terrible-than-it-had-to-be writing, but also by how much more detailed the animation was than in a lot of cartoons today. High art it wasn't, but you could feel that they put some actual effort into it.

(That said, I was also struck by the terrible capitalization in "Disney's adventures of the Gummi Bears". Either make a show for impressionable kids, or don't.)

Unsubstantiated Fan Theory, but here goes: Gummi Bears was totally going to be a "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves"-based franchise the way "Talespin" was based on the Jungle Book, and the Rescue Rangers based upon the Rescue Rangers with comedic-short superstars Chip and Dale anchoring.

Vast and hidden subterranean empires that ran on clever medieval engineering? Check. Oblivious, primitive human kingdoms living above their undiscovered ruins until one of the humans is in deepest need? Check. Tolkien overtones everywhere? Check.

But the boss' kid comes home excited about a fad candy that hasn't been trademarked in the US, yet, and all of a sudden instead of dwarves, there are bears that bounce and the giant subterranean statue motifs are of bear-people, now.

It's still about a found-family that's the very last flickering ember of an entire advanced culture that once spanned continents, who manage to find at least two children in the aftermath of whatever cataclysm became them. It's their desperate fight for survival against supernaturally strong enemies who know they exist, and want to wring the last ounce of their power from them. It's about my brother replying to my Dad's every request with "Okie-dokie, Dukie!"

Duke Igthorn was a comedic character, because if he was as competent as Sher Khan in Talespin, the kids would never get to sleep.

The reason you don't remember Gummi Bears is that it was dark as fuck on a fundamental level. This awesome mis-matched family is fighting back the apocalyptic darkness that has overwhelmed an empire, and a madman with huge monsters is coming to enslave them and all of their friends.

Kids like plucky underdogs, but they also like it when the heroes have a fighting chance against all comers. The very premise of The Gummi Bears is that the good guys can and do lose, on a massive scale. It's message is of hope, but that can be lost in the gloom of the Gummi Caverns.

I saw it as a teen, so I loved the hell out of it.

fifteen schnitzengruben is my limit: I'm 95% certain that I remember at least one episode that was a smurf/gummi bears crossover. But I might be misremembering that - a quick google isn't showing anything, and I remember that smurfs ran either before of after Gummi Bears.

I can still remember when I first talked about Gummi Bears to my wife. She was sure that I was fucking with her head. Yes, a cartoon called Gummi Bears. But they're not candy, they're brilliantly coloured bears. And their super power is that when they drink a flask of gummi berry juice they can bounce on their butts for about a minute. No, I'm not making this up. Yes it existed. And it ran for years!

I suppose there's not going to be a better time to share the Japanese version of the theme, which I find strangely superior, presumably because the literal translation is more amusing to me:

Haruka tooi fushigi na mori. (Far away mysterious forest)
Mimi wo sumasete goran. (Please hear me)
Yuuki to ai to mahou ni michita (Full of courage, love and magic)
utagoe ga hora kikoeru. (Singing can be heard)

Gummi Bear. (Gummi Bears*)
Bokura no nakama Gummi Bear. (Our friends the Gummi Bears)
Saa kyou mo tobidasou. (Let's fly** again today)
Bouken ga matteru. (Adventure is waiting)

Hokori takaki kuma tachi no (The proud bear's…)
himitsu sore ha Gummi Berry Juice. (…secret; that's Gummi Berry Juice)
Oozora takaku tonde hanete (Big sky fly-bounce high)
seigi no tame ni tatakae. (Fight for the sake of justice)

* Japanese doesn't do plurals by changing noun forms, so sometimes uses singular versions of loan words even in a plural context.

** The same verb is used for jump and fly

Bonus: the theme's chorus in 20 different languages. Curiously some, such as French, also change the orchestration.

Also, Monterey Jack on the Rescue Rangers - as a slim and small pre-teen who was quiet and shy who wound up... uh... not being that at all as a teen, I liked his bombast, and competence while being goofy and friendly with those not as talented, and the fact he was a tiny little mouse in a human world who could and did out-muscle full-grown humans.
