The complete “Cinnamon Bear” is here!

December 13th, 2013 § 0

The CINNAMON BEAR is the classic story of Judy and Jimmy Barton who search for the family’s Silver Star which goes on top of their Christmas tree.  They discover the star has disappeared from the attic.  Then they meet The Cinnamon Bear, and fly to Maybeland in his Soda Pop Airplane in pursuit of the Crazy Quilt Dragon, whom they believe took the ornament.  They meet a host of characters, including Crazy Quilt Dragon, The Wintergreen Witch, Fe Fo the Giant, and even Santa Claus.

Each 15 minute adventure in this 26 episode radio series is a cliffhanger.  Several times they recover the star, only to lose it again.  Eventually the star is found for good and they return home just in time for Christmas.

This classic story was written by Glan Heisch, inspired by the stuffed bear of his boyhood, for his daughter, Catherine.  Radio historians differ on the year of the first broadcast.  Some say 1937, others say 1938.  It would seem that it was “heard” several years before it was transcribed for broadcast.  Airplay would start just after Thanksgiving and run until Christmas Eve. But you can listen to these at your own pace all through the holiday season! (Warning: Your kids WILL beg for more, so use ‘em as an incentive reward to get things like schoolwork and chores done around the house! ha ha)

Content Note: In this 26 part series, the characters do encounter a witch and some magical creatures. These are not “Harry Potter” type realistic characters, but old fashioned cartoony 1930′s versions. However, because some parents wish us to let them know if there are elements of magic in a program in any shape or form, we’re letting you know that now.

If you like this series, we Highly Recommend you pick up our delightful CINNAMON BEAR COMPANION bundle to go along with these programs!  This downloadable resource package includes a terrific LAPBOOK with activities for EVERY episode of the series, 2 fun BOARD GAMES, 2 COLORING BOOKS and an MP3 “album” of all the great songs from the series… all for just $7 (we’ve decided to keep it at this discounted price for the rest of this season).

Paul Revere, famous American revolution patriot, is most remembered today for his night-time ride sounding the alert before the battles of Lexington and Concord. His famous “Midnight ride” took place on the night of April 18, 1775. William Dawes and Revere were instructed by Dr. Joseph Warren to ride from Boston to Lexington to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams of the movements of the British Army.
