Bernard, known as Backkom in South Korea, is an Spanish-South Korean-French 3-minute CGI-animated children’s comedy television series.

Starring: Tim Whintall, Toyah Willcox.

The show centers on a curious polar bear named Bernard, whose bumbling slapstick antics typically result in the bear being knocked unconscious or being severely injured by the end of an episode. Bernard doesn’t speak, but he does communicate through guttural sounds. Bernard is accompanied by penguins Lloyd and Eva, Zack the lizard, Goliath the chihuahua, Sam the baby, Pilot the dog, Pokey the porcupine and Santa Claus.

The programme ran for five series/seasons/60 episodes between 2007 and 2012.
