My sisters and I actually used to watch “Gummi Bears” when we lived overseas. For some baffling reason, I still have neurons devoted to remembering the theme song over 20 years later. (“Gummi Bears! Bouncing here and there and everywhere!”) Now I’ve had a chance to watch it again after all these years with my own kids. I was surprised to see just how well it has held up over time. The animation and character designs still look great. The stories are funny and intriguing. And the whole universe has a fantasy setting which, these days, is having a renaissance thanks to “Lord of the Rings” and “Harry Potter.” It’s better than a lot of cartoons on TV today.
Since my kids got their hands on this DVD, they’ve been methodically going through each episode. So if you need to entertain your kids for 640 minutes and you don’t want to drive yourself insane, I highly recommend picking up “The Adventures of the Gummi Bears.”
