I've read about it several times before. Many on here would love to see Country Bears make a comeback and take up new residence in Redwood Creek. The popularity of the music and the love of the AA's are at the root of the adoration for this beloved attraction. The likely choice would be to replace the theater currently occupied by Brother Bear which is an equally popular show. In a sad twist of irony, Brother Bear uses the same simple AA movements that many felt was the reason for Country Bear's demise.
Thinking about the reasons for the removal of Country Bear I stumbled upon one very interesting fact. A primary reason for the removal was the lack of individuals attending the show. This same phenomenon is seen in Tough to be a Bug, HISTA, Muppets... pretty much everything but Aladdin. But if a theater is smaller like Playhouse Disney, Turtle Talk, Brother Bear, or Tiki then you have a full show even if those in attendance are a fraction of what would fill up a substantially larger theater.
So this brings about several questions the first of which is would an AA style show work in todays modern environment? Would the Country Bears find the same niche in the public of today that they found in the public of the past? Will their music take hold, or be forgotten?
This also brings about another startling revelation. With all the changes that are being done to DCA, nothing appears to be happening to either GRR or Redwood Creek. At a minimum I would think they would remove the modern references and make GRR more of an "abandoned mine" type theme. That could easily be the subject of another thread entirely.
