Remember Arthur? Based on Marc Browns books, Arthur was PBS's longest running series. It has ended after 25 seasons. The final episode was All Grown Up, Arthur was an author, Buster was a teacher, Francine was a businesswoman, George owned the Sugar Bowl, Binky is a TV Weatherman, Muffy was running for mayor, and DW was a cop.
Why can't The Berenstain Bears do something like that? Brother could be a writer married to Bonnie Brown, Sister could be in collage, Honey in Elementary or Jr. high. Cousin Freddy could be a scientist, Barry could be working cars, Too-Tall and his gang could be (instead of bully related) be cops or something civil.
