Berenstain Bears: Family and Friendship

New Adventures from the Long-Running PBS KIDS® Series
THE BERENSTAIN BEARS:
FAMILY AND FRIENDSHIP

Based on the Best-selling Children’s Books
Debuts on DVD on August 12, 2008

Culver City, CA (June 9, 2008) –Bear Country’s most loveable family is back, and this time they are learning the secrets of growing up. Mama, Papa, Sister and Brother learn lessons that go along with sharing and caring in THE BERENSTAIN BEARS: FAMILY AND FRIENDSHIP. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release the 12th volume from the popular PBS KIDS® series on DVD on August 12, 2008 with a family-friendly SRP of $12.99.

Take a trip deep into Bear Country to discover where bad dreams come from and how giving is the other end of receiving. Share the cool lessons learned from new neighbors, and understand why growing up should take its own sweet time. Mama, Papa, Brother and Sister invite you to share the bonds of family and friendship in these lively everyday adventures with THE BERENSTAIN BEARS.

Based on the classic children’s book series (over 260 million copies sold to date!) from Stan and Jan Berenstain, THE BERENSTAIN BEARS, a Nelvana Limited Co-Production with Agogo Entertainment Limited in association with PBS and Treehouse, has fascinated children for four decades. Premiering in 2003 on the PBS KIDS® Network, the preschool-targeted animated series THE BERENSTAIN BEARS has proven that their enduring message of love and patience easily translates from the printed page to the small screen. Like all other titles FAMILY AND FRIENDSHIP also contains Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s unique “Quick-Start” auto-play feature.

Adventures Include
The Green Eyed Monster
When Brother gets a brand new three-speed racer, Sister's envious feelings are personified in her dreams by a little green version of herself. This Green Eyed Monster convinces Sister to sneak Brother's new bike out for a ride but when she does, Sister realizes too late that it's too big for her and she can't control it. Fortunately Brother and Papa rescue Sister before Brother's bike can crash, then together they help chase the Green Eyed Monster away by jazzing up Brother's old bike and giving it to Sister.

The Prize Pumpkin
Papa’s longstanding friendship with Farmer Ben becomes strained when winning first place at a pumpkin growing contest becomes far too important. On Thanksgiving Day, after his pumpkin fails to take the blue ribbon, Papa is thankful that Farmer Ben still wants to be his friend in spite his unneighborly behavior during the competition.

The New Neighbors
When the family next door moves away, Papa, Mama and the cubs all hope their new neighbors will be just like their old ones. But when the new neighbors turn out to be nothing at all like the old ones, the Bear Family has trouble adjusting and can’t seem to warm up to them. But, by focusing on who their new neighbors are instead of who they aren’t, the Bear Family learns to appreciate their differences and realizes the new neighbors are just as great as the old ones - in their own way.

Think Of Those In Need
When Brother and Sister have to clean their room, they find they have more things than places to store it all. They decide to donate their extra games, puzzles and books to the Home For Retired Bears. Later, Brother discovers that he has given away a book he wanted to keep. In the process of searching the Retirement Home for his accidental donation, he and Sister visit with some of the elderly residents and learn how rewarding it is to share their time with others.

The Bad Dream
Brother and Sister love the Space Grizzlies TV show, but recently, Sister finds that a new villain character is just a little too scary for her. In fact, it’s becoming harder and harder to avoid him – he’s on the TV, he’s one of Brother’s modelling clay sculptures, and ultimately, the Space Grizzly character ends up in one of her dreams. When Sister tells Mama about her bad dream, Mama reassures her that it is always best to talk to someone about things you find scary because it makes you feel better. Sister does feel better, and like Mama did for her, Sister helps Brother feel better by being there for him to talk to when he has his own bad dream.

Big Bear, Small Bear
When he’s given his very own key to the tree house, Brother feels so ‘all grown up’ that he turns his back on frivolous ‘cub games’ in favour of doing ‘important grown up jobs’ with Papa. But when Papa can’t find a way to help Ms. Grizzle gain access to her accidentally locked house, it’s Brother who shinnies up a nearby tree to an open window like only a cub can. Realizing that cubs can do important jobs too, like taking care of their pets, helping their family and siblings, Brother decides not to be in such a rush to be ‘all grown up’ and rejoins the cub fun with his friends.
