PBS Kids released many Ready to Learn bumpers in 1999. 8 are PBS Kids programming related while 8 are early learning oriented. They are all live-action, with some animation and puppetry. Many people claimed to have been freaked out by these bumpers while others feel nostalgic for them. Some of the bumpers, such as Bear and Friends, are really rare and extremely hard to find recordings of. The bumpers include:
Alphabet: Children reveal letters on their shirts.
Stomach Dance Party: A boy eats ice cream, then invites other foods to his stomach.
Beginning Middle End: Three long creatures show their beginnings, middles, and ends.
