HUMPHREY B. BEAR
Humphrey B. Bear is a honey-loving bear who, like every kid (and many a grown up), loves exploring, creating, playing, learning and giving anything a go. Humphrey is a friend to everyone and everyone is Humphrey’s friend. He’s a magical bear who lives in the magical forest where anything can happen.
Humphrey magically came into our lives in 1965 where he wandered across the set of a kids TV program unannounced, and from that point onwards won the hearts of kids and grownups alike. Originally known as Bear Bear, Australia was quick to adopt him as one of our own and give him a new name, as voted by the people – Humphrey B Bear which quickly led to his own highly successful TV show.
Humphrey’s TV program, “Here’s Humphrey”, is one of the longest running children’s television shows in the world. Humphrey B Bear has received numerous national awards and commendations including the “Citizen of the Year” Award at Australia Day celebrations and two Logies for “Best Children’s Series”. He has appeared on the Nine Network in Australia, PBS Network in the USA, Spanish language cable network GalaVision to Hispanic countries, across Asia on the ABC’s Australia Network spanning 46 countries with an estimated audience of 144 million in the Asia Pacific region. He has also aired in the Middle East, South Africa, the Mediterranean, UK, Singapore and Malaysia, and entertained and educated children in 55 languages worldwide.
