Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Bear in the Big Blue House
Ear Worm: The Bear Cha Cha Cha. Just reading the song's name is enough.
She Really Can Sing: Lynne Thigpen as Luna. It's especially poignant if you knew her best as The Chief, who never sang.
Tastes Like Diabetes: The show occasionally veer towards this with things like the "Dear Grandma" song. It never quite seems to get there, though, possibly because it's just too sincere.
Tear Jerker and Harsher in Hindsight: Listen to The Goodbye Song. Then ponder upon the fact that Lynne Thigpen, the VA of Luna, has passed on. More than 10 years ago. After that, wipe those tears off your eyes, listen to Bear's ending speech, and when he ends with a "see you soon", realize in horror that the show has been off the air for 6 years and has not been in production for 11 years.
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: There were a number of regular guests that they probably could have developed more or even become regulars, but on the whole they generally stuck with focusing for the most part on the main cast.
