Old Bear Stories now available to watch for free on our website!


Here's a treat for the end of the week: we're pleased to announce that 39 episodes, plus the Christmas special, of the BAFTA award-winning television show Old Bear Stories are now available to watch through our website, courtesy of author Jane Hissey's official Youtube channel.

What's more, all of the Old Bear books are also available via our website, and you'll find links to the related books on each video page – or you can explore the entire Jane Hissey collection here.

The stop-frame animation series was produced by Ealing Animation and was originally broadcast on ITV between September 1993 and December 1997. It has been shown throughout the world, including the United States, Canada and Australia. But now it's available direct to your laptop/smart phone! Today's children are sure to enjoy the charming animation and gentle storytelling magic just like their parents once did. Of course, if you're already a grown-up but want to revisit the shows from your childhood, feel free to dive in also. So what are you waiting for? Settle back with a cup of tea and get watching!
