This animated series was the first animated production by Walt Disney Animation Television. The series premiered on NBC on September 14, 1985, airing in that channel for 4 seasons. Then in season 5 (1989-1990) it was moved to ABC for one season, and concluded on September 6, 1991 as part of the Disney Afternoon television syndication package. It featured 67 shows, 30 of which were double-features, consisting of two 11-minute cartoons, thereby bringing the series to a total of 97 distinct episodes. The show is well-remembered for its theme music, written by Michael and Patty Silversher.

The Gummi Bears are a family of small bears living secretly in their forest home in Gummi Glen in the kingdom of Dunwyn. They are the last ones of an ancient civilization of Gummis. When they are in problems, they use their magical gummi berry juice, which gives them incredible jumping abilities.

Evil Duke Igthorn is trying to learn the secret recipe of gummi berry juice so he can take over the kingdom. The allies of the Gummis include young humans Cavin and Princess Calla.

Some of the main characters of the story include:

Zummi Gummi, an aged and clumsy bear who is the Gummi's "Keeper of Gummi Wisdom" and later the holder of the Gummi-Medallion which he uses to read his magic book to become the group's magician and whose spells tend to back-fire.

Gruffi Gummi, an old-fashioned bear who prefers to do things "the Gummi way".

Grammi Gummi is something like the mother of the group, she cooks, cleans, and is the Gummi who prepares the Gummiberry Juice; she holds the secret recipe, and will pass it down only to Sunni when she is of age.

Tummi Gummi is the overweight teenager Gummi who is rather lazy and easygoing and spends more time eating the gummiberries than picking them.
