"Dashing and daring, courageous and caring,Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears was an animated TV series by Disney. Although The Wuzzles was Disney's first original animated TV series, that was really a trial run for this series, which almost immediately made the company a dominant force in television animation. It had a total of 94 episodes, lasting from September, 1985 to February, 1991.The series takes place in The Theme Park Version of medieval time, five-hundred years after the last of the Great Gummis fled across the ocean, while a small caretaker colony stayed behind the Kingdom of Dunwyn to maintain the civilization's extremely sophisticated infrastructure on the off-chance the Gummis could return to live with humans in peace someday.Unfortunately, at the start of the story, Gummi Glen has declined to only six descendants who have forgotten most of their heritage. They come across a friendly human boy named Cavin who happens to own an ancient Gummi Medallion; the key that unlocks their library's Great Book of Gummi and all the knowledge contained inside.The Gummis fight against Duke Igthorn of Drekmore and his army of ogres. He is out to conquer Dunwyn and upon discovering that the supposedly mythological Gummi Bears exist, he will stop at nothing to exploit their secrets and steal the recipe for their powerful Gummiberry juice.And yes, the inspiration for the show did come from the candy, as you were probably wondering.
Faithful and friendly with stories to share,
All through the forest they sing out in chorus,
Marching along as their song fills the air..."
