YMMV / Bear in the Big Blue House

  • Ear Worm: The Bear Cha Cha Cha. Just reading the song's name is enough.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Tutter, for certain.
    • Ojo also counts to a smaller extent, due to being the only girl of the group.
  • Fridge Logic: How is it that a group of kids that all or most apparently have no parents never feel a need to talk about that?
  • Memetic Mutation: The now seemingly Lost Forever Bear in The Big Brown Poop (as it's name suggests, it's a YouTube Poop), which also contains a purposely done Mondegreen (Tomorrow just died Today..., from The Goodbye Song). Granted though, many of the fans felt this way when Disney cancelled the show.
  • Moe: Ojo is just plain adorable.
  • Name's the Same: Luna shares her name with an NPC Tapir from Animal Crossing, the protagonist's cat from Sailor Moon, a young witch from Harry Potter and a winged unicorn (that was ironically imprisoned for 1000 years on the moon) from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Some of the Shadow segments can be Grade A nightmare fuel, such as one involving an alligator eating a pair of blue-suede shoes. Utterly bizarre.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: Predictably, the UbiSoft games got critically panned, even though they're half-decent titles.
  • 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.
    • A Beary Bear Christmas has one song where Tutter sings about what if there is no Big Blue House. A real tearjerker if you're watching in 2015. As an added irony, according to Word of God, the writer of the song originally intended for the song to be mainly performed by Bear and not Tutter.
  • 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.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Ojo's a girl?
    • Treelo's a boy?
  • The Woobie: Ojo, at times, especially in the episodes "Lost Thing" and "Why Bears Can't Fly"
