Bossy Bear (TV-Y)
Streaming Age 5+
Fun, lively animated show highlights friendship, culture.
“Bossy Bear” is an animated series about a bear and his friends and family. Bossy (voiced by Jayden Ham) and his bestie, Turtle (Jaba Keh), have all kinds of adventures, from raising a chrysalis to become a butterfly to meeting Bts-esque K-pop group Superflock. They also learn a lot of lessons together, like how to wait
(thanks to Turtle’s Gran Gran), how to deal with embarrassment and what it’s like to let something go. The buddies are also different — Bossy’s an extrovert, while Turtle is more introverted — but they always find ways to get along. Expect lots of nods to Korean culture in the series. Families looking for a lively, “Bluey”-style show for the slightly older set will find a great choice in “Bossy” (who, as it turns out, really isn’t that bossy). (30 half-hour episodes) Available on Nick Jr.
