On July 4, 1999, the Bear in the Big Blue House Show premiered in the Disney-MGM Studios Park in Walt Disney World. Based on the hit Playhouse Disney show produced by Jim Henson Productions, the show featured the characters of Bear, with his friends Ojo, Treelo, Pip, Pop, Shadow, and Luna. It was housed on Soundstage 5, and the 15-minute show had guests sitting on a carpeted floor. The show ended its run on August 4, 2001, and was replaced with Playhouse Disney – Live on Stage, which included several characters from this show.
