We all know that the internet can be a pretty horrible place, but every now and again something comes along and reminds you that, yeah, people do have emotions.

Sometimes it's an act of goodwill or the heartfelt words of a celebrity to a fan but a touch of nostalgia can also do the trick.

Recently the Twitter user The Milan Tooner shared the final scene of the popular Disney children's TV show Bear in the Big Blue House online.

The show which ran for five seasons from 1997 to 2006 was produced by the Jim Henson Television, and broadcast on the Playhouse Disney preschool channel.

During it's time on air it was an incredibly popular show with children and adults alike and went on to win three Daytime Emmy awards and a Director's Guild award.

The scene, which actually comes from the final episode of the fourth season (the show made a brief comeback in 2006 but only for eight episodes) sees Bear talking to the moon, aptly named Luna.

He tells her about his day and how nice everyone has been to him, but just before she has to leave he asks her if she'd like to sing 'The Goodbye Song' one last time, which was sung at the end of every episode and she duly obliges.

After they finish the song Bear says:

By the way, I hope I've been one of the nicest parts of your life because you've been one of the nicest parts of mine.

This is all a bit too much.

At the time of writing, this tweet has been shared more than 93,000 times, liked more than 270,000 and viewed more than 3.5 million times.

For some people, just this scene alone has stirred something inside of them and they are struggling to hold back the tears.

The Milan Tooner then added another tweet about the scene from an article where the Bear's voice actor Noel MacNeal explains that the scene was used at the memorial service for Lynne Thigpen, who voiced Luna.

Now, we could provide a critical analysis of why people are sharing this scene as it relates to some deep-seated longing to return to our childhoods, but - let's be honest - some things are just nice and that's OK.
