Playhouse Disney brought families around the country several popular shows, including Rolie Polie Olie, PB&J Otter, Out of the Box, Higglytown Heroes, and, of course, the fan-favorite Bear in the Big Blue House.
Once Disney+ debuted in 2019, subscribers were disappointed to see that some of these shows were not included. In fact, several petitions were made to urge Disney+ to add some of these Playhouse Disney shows to the service.
Now, after two years of Disney+, we may finally be seeing one of these Playhouse Disney shows hit the streaming service!
Recently, during a live stream to raise money for “Give Kids the World Village”, a nonprofit that provides critically ill children and their families with wish vacations, Disney theme park YouTuber, Defunctland, was joined by Bear in the Big Blue House star Noel MacNeal, who hinted that the show may finally be hitting Disney+!
“I think 2021 is going to be a very good year, and if you have Disney+…be patient,” MacNeal said during the live stream.
Now, MacNeal could have been talking about bringing the the fan-favorite Bear in the Big Blue House to Disney+, but he also could have been hinting that a revamped version of the Playhouse Disney show could also be in the works. We have already seen The Proud Family and The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers hit Disney+, both as reboot versions of their originals, so it is possible that Disney is working on reviving Bear in the Big Blue House as well.
Inside the Magic will update you as we get more information.
