Heartwarming / Little Bear

Go To

On a long-running Nick Jr. show about cute talking animals living a happy country life in the olden days, you can expect these moments to happen a lot.

  • Little Bear: Stop fooling! You're my Mother Bear, and I'm your Little Bear, and we're on earth, and you know it!
  • Little Bear thinks Mother Bear has forgotten his birthday. She surprises him with a cake that took longer than she expected to make and assures him she never forgot and never will.
  • Emily saying good-bye to Little Bear because she has to go to school in town. Doubles as a Tearjerker.
  • Mother Bear's friendship with the baby robin as a child. She offers to let the robin live with her when she can't find her nest and can't fly, and they grow up together. Later, the robin is depressed and Mother Bear tells her to go be with the other robins, even though it makes her sad. The robin tells her not to be, and that she'll visit every year. True to her word, she does, and even her descendants still visit Grandmother and Grandfather Bear's home.

  • Mother Bear's treasured maracas Father Bear brought her years ago seem to be lost, but it turns out Cat had them and brought them back, and the group has a dance/pirate party.
  • The whole winter solstice celebration is quite heartwarming in general. You and your friends hang up snacks on string on the trees for snow angels to eat when they come, you sing songs, play in the snow, enjoy a big meal together, everything most would want to do with their loved ones during the holidays.
    • Little Bear helping the "snow angel" deer get the last cookie before the little fawn returns to his family. He even stops for a glance at Little Bear before following them.
  • The entirety of "Happy Anniversary". In the episode, Mother and Father Bear celebrate their wedding anniversary. Little Bear also celebrates by secretly making a present for them: a picture frame. Because Father Bear spent the day fishing, Little Bear suggests to join Mother Bear in celebrating by helping her dress up in her fanciest outfit: her wedding dress. The two (Little Bear donning a top hat) later dance away to Mother and Father's wedding song and enjoy the evening together. The night gets even sweeter when Father Bear returns home early from his fishing trip to surprise Mother Bear with a bouquet of flowers, and appears in his fanciest outfit: his tuxedo. The evening was then revealed to have been planned by Father and son. The happy, loving couple thank their kind son for celebrating their wedding anniversary with them and he returns the favor with his picture frame present, which he later filled with his parents' wedding picture. The episode ends with Bears celebrating the anniversary together as a family. This episode will definitely put a smile on your face and bring tears to your eyes.
