"inundated"? I think you're overreacting. There have been 17 baby bear episodes so far. (18 if you include that story from Charlie's Halloween Thing 2) There are 121 episodes in total.

So for every 20 episodes, there are about 3 baby bear episodes and 17 normal episodes. I think that's a nice ratio.
Take it from the perspective of someone who was binge-watching the show's premieres over the past year, whether on TV or the app. Whenever CN releases a new batch of episodes to watch for the week, there are multiple Baby Bear episodes during the batch. Viewers would call it "inundated" because it feels that way.

Okay, I see your point. 2018 had 33 episodes. 9 (or 10) of them featured the baby bears.
2017 only had 5 baby bear episodes. 2016 only 3.

Our CN has yet to air most of season 4 (so far we only got episodes 6-8, 10 and 13-17), so I never realized the amount of baby bear episodes went up that much.

Also, I don't think the creators are trying to make this show cute. This isn't My Little Pony. They're just trying to tell fun stories and want to explore the bears' pasts.
No I see your point, too. Looking at the show as a whole, it doesn't seem like too much. But like @Daikun said, there's almost always at least one Baby Bears episode per batch of new episodes, so it feels like a lot. In addition to this, realize that season 1 of WBB only had two Baby Bears episodes (unless you consider "Burrito" as a Baby Bears episode as well). Season 4 has had six Baby Bears episodes already (8 if you count "Charlie's Halloween Thing" and the upcoming "Christmas Movies"), and it's not even over yet. They are definitely trying to increase the ratio from when the show first started, maybe due to the imminent change in the young voice actors' voices? I don't know.

Also, and this is just my personal opinion, I think that seventeen episodes is already too much. The Baby Bears episodes should be reserved for important moments in the Bears' childhoods, not just cute little fluff stories. In the beginning, I felt that the Baby Bears episodes were a little more meaningful; now a lot of them (but certainly not all) feel like filler just to show off how adorable the characters are. I know some will disagree, but that's just how I feel.

Sooo... why are there no new episode titles? Why is everyone so quiet?

I have this feeling that the show will end after 125 episodes (5x26) or after 130 episodes (like Clarence). We Baby Bare Bears could be season 5... Like Cow and Chicken season 5, which was nothing but I Am Weasel.

Or maybe I'm overreacting. However, once Gumball is over, Steven Universe and We Bare Bears will be the oldest current CN originals...

Is That a Theory? Plus There hadn't been anything new yet.

If Possible, they might be talking renewing the show for 6th (and possibly the last) season.

Only SU is the oldest since it came out in 2013, but it possibly won't be the oldest for that long since they might be finished once after the series film is released.

There have been multiple hints about Steven Universe season 6, including a picture.

Not so much for We Bare Bears season 5... No news about it :( Speculating about a possible sixth season is wishful thinking when we don't even know if there will be a fifth season.

So it's not going away anytime soon, that's good news :)

So much merchandise... I don't see any CN merchandise nowadays.

I don't see any merchandise in Belgium (it has been like this ever since Ben 10 got less popular), but I'm sure there is a lot in the USA. I see lots of stuff on Amazon :D I only dare to ship from the Netherlands and (rarely) the UK, but I would love to buy something with We Bare Bears or Craig of the Creek on it...

In Asia, WBB has become CN's Hello Kitty in terms of merchandising. Everyone (mostly girls) wants WBB plushes, or backpacks, or stickers, or tumblers, etc. Ending it against the creator's wish would be a huge mistake. They have a potential cash cow in their hands.

I really do need to see Unikitty, Puppycorn, Dr. Fox, Hawkodile, and Richard come back for more new adventures this summer!
Happy Father's Day to all dads out there (including my own)!
Homestar Runner was trending yesterday and I didn't notice. Is the series all up ons again?
Amphibia looks pretty deece so far. The premise is like the isekai anime genre, except the main protagonist isn't stuck in a typical fantasy RPG world that most isekai anime take place in.
