Based on an attraction at Disneyland, the Country Bear Jamboree, this movie is one in a long line of live action Disney family films. The movie is a satire of "Behind the Music" rock and roll bands. Beary, a young bear raised by a human family in a world where humans and talking bears coexist, attempts to trace his roots. He meets up with the Country Bears, a long-since broken-up band, a parody of bands like the Eagles. Beary helps the Country Bears reunite for one final concert, while searching for who he truly is.Written by
When Henry gives Beary a tour of Country Bear Hall, he names a few performers who had played there back in the day, including Liver Lips McGrowl and Gomer, two of the bears featured in the "Country Bear Jamboree" in Walt Disney World, on which the movie was based. See more »
When the phone tracing is being set up in the Barrington house, Officer Cheets hangs up the handset on a phone. In the next shot it is still in his hand. See more »
This was a far better movie than I expected. Although simple in plot and substance, the presence of both past and present music stars lends to the credibility of the "Bears" as a musical force from the 70's. It was funny, and a great film for the whole family!
