This is an outstanding show. All people involved in the production, especially the man (Noel MacNeal) who plays Bear, are tremendously talented. I love the everyday issues as well as the social issues the show chooses to deal with. For this parent, the treatment of these issues is the best. Never are kids talked down to, and even homelessness (the Christmas show) is not sugar-coated. The segment with Shadow is great for stimulating the imagination, and the closing of each episode with Bear and Luna is a great way to introduce little ones to contemplation and love for the night skies. I hear this show is no longer in current production. What a loss!
