This is my all-time favorite Disney nature documentary
28 July 2000 | by tomhullSee all my reviews

It's been approx. 25 years since I have seen this fine film, and my memory is somewhat faded. I do remember the excellent narration. The narrator obviously cared very much about the bears that starred in the film; and also about the people who would be watching it. I can still recall a few real cute scenes that must have required a lot of patience on the part of the photographers. And I vividly remember that poignant final scene where the mother bear left her cubs, "never to return" as the narrator said.
