List of Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears episodes
This is a list of Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears episodes.
Background on episodes
In the fall of 1990, the series became a part of Disney's weekday afternoon syndicated cartoon block, The Disney Afternoon. Season 6 premiered as part of TDA, with new episodes interspersed with reruns of previous ones.
In total, there are 95 individual 11-minute and 22-minute episodes, which make up 65 half hours.
Seasons 1–5 are listed here in their original U.S. network episode order. In the original network run from season 2 onward, some 11-minute segments originally aired mixed with repeats; when the show was distributed internationally, the segments were combined into standardized half-hour combinations. (Season 5 had an odd number of 11-minute segments; "Never Give a Gummi an Even Break" is coupled with the season 6 segment "Friar Tum" in the "international" order.)
(The episode arrangements for the Disney Afternoon airings were completely different, with half-length segments from different seasons mixed together. These versions subsequently aired on The Disney Channel, Toon Disney, and the Family Channel in Canada.)
Season 6 premiered as part of The Disney Afternoon. The order and airdates presented here correspond to the first airings of the new episodes on TDA. Three of these were 11-minute episodes, "Friar Tum", "Zummi in Slumberland", and "A Recipe for Trouble", which each aired in the U.S. coupled with a segment from a previous season; here, each of them is listed by itself. However, in international markets, season 6 was presented in a different order than in the U.S., and these segments were grouped together into two half-hours (with "Friar Tum" being coupled with the leftover season 5 segment "Never Give a Gummi an Even Break"). This is why some episode guides list "Friar Tum/Never Give a Gummi an Even Break" and "Zummi in Slumberland/A Recipe for Trouble", which is how the episodes were presented internationally. (Also, though most consider the two-part "King Igthorn" story to be the series finale, and it comes last in the international episode order, six more episodes premiered after it in the U.S., over a two-week period in February 1991.)
Two numbers are given for each episode: One number corresponding to the order in which it premiered in the U.S., and a second corresponding to Disney's official "international" order (with the 11-minute segments marked "a" or "b" to denote the first or second segment).
