Gummi Bears Cartoon

I don’t know what made me think of this the other day, but does everyone remember the Gummi Bears cartoon? It was a bunch of lovable Gummi Bears living in medieval times and trying to thwart Duke Igthorn and his ogres’ evil attempts at capturing the Gummis and their magic. Drinking GummiBerry Juice made them into super-bouncers, and if their trusted human friends drank it, they got super-human strength (temporarily). My favorite line from the show is “Okie-dokie, Dukie” said by one of the Duke’s little ogres. I still say that every now and then (yes, I’m weird).

The Gummi Bears was created by Disney and originally aired on NBC from 1985-1991. The Gummi Bears was Disney’s first foray into television animation so it is therefore significant in cartoon history. I think it is the best TV show ever based on a candy (I think it’s the only one).

UPDATE: The Gummi Bears DVD is now available!

    Yes! That was such a cute cartoon. There was also an associated ride at Disneyland where you got to drive motorboats. It was great fun.

    I Love the Gummi Bears and everyone I talk to never know what i’m talking about until they see the picture of them. I wish it still came on tv & I want the DVDs. I think they need to bring back the Gummi Bears, Fraggle Rock…all the good shows from back in the 80s.

    I woke up thinking about this cartoon I watched with glee as a kid – I could not for the life of me remember what it was called. All I could think of was the theme song “Gummi Bears, jumping here and there and everywhere…” Thanks heaps Google and Candy Addict! Now I’m going to Google another cartoon, the Snorks.

    The Gummi Bears was a great era for Disney TV cartoons, alongside hits like Darkwing Duck, Duck Tales…I even give credit to Rescue Rangers. All these had a good, clean approach to the animation, storylines were adventurous without getting too dark, great entertainment for kids.
