The Berenstain Bears is a 2003 animated television series based on Stan and Jan Berenstain's Berenstain Bears children's book series.

The show was produced by Agogo Entertainment and the Canadian animation company Nelvana for the PBS Kids Channel. Eighty 15 minute episodes were produced. Not all of the episodes were based on Berenstain Bears books, though most books got their own episodes.


Differences from The Berenstain Bears Show from 1985

One complaint associated with the 1985 CBS animated series was that Papa Bear had often acted in an antagonistic manner; doing such things as conspiring to steal honey from talking bees or catch a talking catfish which Brother and Sister were friendly with. Many fans of the books felt that although Papa did occasionally act goofy in the books, the 1985 series was making him appear much too self-centered for the sake of creating a "villain". The 2003 series focused almost solely on the stories and had Papa in much more of a role as a proper father figure, usually offering helpful advice or commending Brother when he helped out Sister Bear, though Papa would still act goofy sometimes throughout this series.

The program can currently be seen on YTV in Canada. The series was also seen on Treehouse TV (Canada) (and often fluctuates between the two channels), Knowledge (British Columbia), Tiny Pop (UK), and PBS Kids Sprout (U.S).
