Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears

Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears was a cartoon that was aired in the United States and other countries in the mid-to-late-1980s. The show was made by The Walt Disney Company and premiered on NBC on September 14, 1985. There are 65 episodes.

The main characters were seven anthropomorphic bears, although some human characters also featured. The series is set in medieval times in the once populous Gummi Glen; the main Gummies' neighborhood is inhabited only by seven gummies. The world has other gummies. Great Gummies are refugees elsewhere awaiting a signal to return. Other gummies live in Ursalia. Allies of the gummies are the people of Darwin (King Gregor, Princess Cala, Cavin). Their nemesis is Duke Igthorn, who aims, with the aid of ogres to rule Darwin. The theme song, Bouncing here and there and everywhere was written by Michael and Patty Silversher.

The Gummi Bears gained their ability to bounce by drinking Gummiberry Juice. If the juice was consumed by humans, they would (temporarily) gain superhuman strength and for this reason, the bears kept the recipe secret. The drinking of this was always accompanied by the Gummiberry Juice song, which included the line we can bounce like kangaroos with gummiberry juice. A fruit juice drink called Gummiberry juice was for a short while retailed in England, and possibly other places.
