The Cinnamon Bear

Our Seasonal Special: The Cinnamon Bear!

The Cinnamon Bear is completely unique in the history of juvenile redio serials, as it was a 26 episode fantasy adventure whose story line took place in real time beginning just after Thanksgiving and concluded on Christmas Eve. As such it hss been presented on the Air somewhere in the world every year since 1937. This year marks the 80th anniversary of The Cinnamon Bear. Please listen to the first episode, “A Note to Parents”, for further insight on this fantastic and unique holiday offering.

The story focuses on Judy and Jimmy Barton who go to the enchanted world of Maybeland to recover the missing Silver Star that belongs on their Christmas tree. Helping on the search is the Cinnamon Bear, a stuffed bear with shoe-button eyes and a green ribbon around his neck.

One the best things about the show is that we get to hear performances by some of the greatest character actors in radio and television history long before they became stars. I’ll introduce you to them in the opening of each episode. The show is offered to you in daily Podcast installments, and like the audiences of the 1930s you’ll experience it in order, with one new show released each day in order to preserve the cliff hanger suspense. Each show is released on it original Air Date from November 29th to December 24th. On Boxing Day December 26th, the entire series will be taken down again until next year.
