BURBANK, Calif., October 12, 2006 – For the first time, the fan-favorite animated series Adventures Of The Gummi Bears will be available to own on DVD November 14.
Volume One, a three-disc DVD set, features the first three seasons of the show.
The Gummi Bears were stars of the first Saturday morning network cartoon series produced by
Walt Disney Productions, and the show enjoyed a very popular run from 1985 to 1991. This
pivotal series helped kick start the television animation boom in the 1980’s, and formed the
anchor for Disney’s successful weekday afternoon block.
Inspired by the Gummi Bears candy, the animated series follows the adventures of a family of
lovable Bears with a long history of extraordinary super powers. With several human friends by
their side, the Bears protect themselves and the world from evil-doers. Adventures Of The
Gummi Bears includes sterling voice talent contributions from a cast that includes the
legendary June Foray (“Mulan,” TV’s “Rocky & Bullwinkle” and many more), Corey Burton
(“Cars,” TV’s “The Boondocks”) and the late, great Paul Winchell (voice of Tigger from the
“Winnie The Pooh” series).
The three-disc set includes the entire collection of 47 fun-loving episodes from the first three
seasons – the perfect DVD for holiday gift giving. Adventures Of The Gummi Bears is
available for U.S. $34.99 (SRP), Canada $37.99 (SRP) from Walt Disney Home Entertainment.
