Before Bear in the Big Blue House began regular production, a test pilot was produced to demonstrate the characters, style and feel of the show. It featured Bear, Tutter and brown versions of Pip and Pop (performed by Joey Mazzarino and David Rudman, and here called Pummel and Pop)[1] in a kitchen singing an original musical number.

The pilot was directed by David Gumpel.
