Storyline

Long ago, there was a thriving civilization of small humanoid bears called Gummi Bears. Possessing powerful magic and advanced technology, this race coexisted with humans until the growing rivalry forced the Gummies to flee across the sea, leaving only a small caretaker colony to prepare for a possible return. However, generations passed and the colony forgot their purpose even as human knowledge of the race faded into mere legend. All that changes when the colony meets a boy with a Gummi Bear medallion which unlocks the Great Book of Gummi which reveals lost knowledge of their past. Now the colony has dedicated themselves to the new goal to rediscover their heritage with the help of a few trusted humans while preventing new enemies like Duke Igthorn from exploiting that heritage to their own ends.

Trivia

This was the first Saturday morning network cartoon series produced by Walt Disney Productions. To finance this series, Disney Television Animation was able to draw upon financial resources supplied by the corporation in anticipation of profiting when the series entered syndication, as opposed to established TV animation competitors, like Hanna-Barbera, who had to depend primarily on network TV license fees to finance their content. This allowed the series to be produced on a comparatively lavish budget for higher quality writing and animation for television. With this series becoming a major success because of these production values, it made Disney Television Animation immediately a major force in the medium. See more »

Excellent series
31 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I agree with the other comments, this was great entertainment. I have some episodes on videotape. Seeing them again recently reminded me of what a cool cartoon it is. The characters were all cleverly created and fun. We have the matriarch, the smart one, the greedy one, the grumpy one... And a villain, Duke Igthorn, for good measure. The stories were varied and original, with both Gummis and human characters. Action was often centered around the castle. One of the best episodes was the one with the magical hat and escape from the castle. Excellent theme music also. Loads of magic and adventure with few dull moments! It's a shame this isn't seen much anymore, as it easily beats all those spin off series Disney made in the 90's.
