The Canadian show was produced for Nickelodeon from 1995 to 2001 and was originally based on the Little Bears books by Else Holmelund Minarik and illustrated by Maurice Sendak.
The show features “characters (that) are moderately anthropomorphic animals, exhibiting both animal and human behaviors, but generally dealing with human problems and concerns. However, Little Bear’s friend, Emily, and her grandmother are human and Tutu, their dog, is mostly a normal pet.” Yes, an interesting mix indeed.
