We follow a family of bears, known as the Berenstain Bears, as they figure out life together. With friendly neighbors and close friends, the journey is never boring. Inspired by the book series written by Stan and Jan Berenstain.
Each themed season had an opening of its own when they originally aired. In 1977, the kids entering the schoolhouse in "Figure Eight" was used. A few years later, the song including Schoolhouse Rocky seen on the VHS compilations was used. The DVDs exclude it but the 30th Anniversary Edition kept the tune of it for the menu's intro to Disc One and the schoolhouse footage for Disc Two. In video releases recurring series singer, Bob Dorough was the voice of the jukebox announcing each upcoming short while Jack Sheldon's conductor from "Conjunction Junction" was the Chef announcing each special (leading to the title).

I remember growing up watching these animated shorts about education and politics. The one thing I think most people remember was the themes songs to these shorts because we hear them for so many years. At least five to ten years of our life. They were inspirational and especially after the Bugs Bunny cartoons that aired before these shorts were played on ABC network. My friends and I used to sing these songs and now a lot of young parents (ages 24-33) are bringing their kids up on these animated educational toons buy purchasing the home videos. This is something that can never leave that part of lives. Great Memories!!!
