A Wonderful Show
21 January 2003 | by (north carolina) – See all my reviews

Growing up in the 80's I loved to look at The Berenstain Bears on Saturday mornings.It's such a cute and priceless cartoon. Now PBS is airing the Berenstain Bears weekday mornings at 7:00 eastern time.It's perfect for children to watch before they go to school and for adults who remember this from childhood as I do.
