Jeremy was a stuffed bear. I think he was moved using stop-animotion. Jeremy had friends Mr. Raven (who was a bird) and Hector (who has a rat). Each show lasted 15 minutes - Jeremy went on adventures around the world and to outer space. I think the shows were just sliced up movies.
I recall the showing airing at 6:30 weeknights on TVO, TV Ontario, TVOntario - Monday, Wednesday and sometimes Friday. Afterwards Readalong would air and then Write On.
Some images from the shows opening
Jeremy singing and dancing. He can carry a tune!
And what a dancer - Fred Astaire look out.
Here are some images from the first episode:

Jeremy as I have found out aired thoroughout the entire world. In Poland he was called Kolargol. In french Colargol. Very little was found on him on the Internet, until I was told that he was known as Barnaby the Bear in the UK. There are several sites and images available of him (see below).
Some adventures I recall - Jeremy going into outer space, Jeremy visiting Hectors sick uncle overseas (who can forget the psudeo-ocean - plastic covered barber poles rotated to give it that moving effect). There was also one time Jeremy entered a bull riding contest and somehow he knew the bull he was going to ride - the bull let him stay on him for two minutes and Jeremy won the contest as a result. Woo-hoo!
Thanks to Valerie for some of this information
Here are some more photos sent to me by Peter Kenter - these are images that were included in the TVO study aid that teachers would use along with watching the show
