What or indeed who, is your favourite bear?

Asked by ucme (39514 points ) December 20th, 2010

Now you may of course answer however you see fit, as always. More so as this is a pretty open forum as far as bears are concerned. Let me explain, your favourite bear could include a real life bear, grizzly, kodiak etc. Or maybe a cartoon bear, Winnie, Baloo & so forth. A bear from a movie tv show or a book. Hell, perhaps even a favourite cuddly cute little teddy bear that you own. So you see, any bear will do. You may begin…. the bear necessity being, have fun with it =)

Fozzie the bear, hands down! With Yogi second.
As for reality, Polar bears are so cute… I want to hug them and squeeze them and call them my best friend.

I like the bear that steals picnic baskets…..But I can’t remember his name…..
and the bear I use as my little picture thing

Leanne1986's avatar

I agree with @thekoukoureport Fozzie Bear rocks even had a dog named after him followed by Paddington.

Yogi stole the baskets. But fozzie could never get the joke out. Sooo funny

Grolar bears. You know, the grizzly/polar mix. I think they’re supposed to be super dangerous, but I like saying “grolar”. Although I’ve heard people call them “pizzly” bears before too, and I think that just sounds gross.
As for fictional bears, I used to like watching the Bear in the Big Blue House with my little brother. It was cute…

Fictional bear: Pooh, but only the Shepherd illustration version, NOT the Disney one. Real life: Panda

My teddy bear is named “Edward ther Bear” after an exchange of dialogue from Milne’s Winnie-The-Pooh (“Don’t you know what a ther is?”). Fozzie the Bear, Paddington, and Rupert Bear aren’t too far behind.

Pandas are not bears, though. Just so you know .

Hard to choose. Pooh and Yogi are up there at the top for me.

That’s a kinkajou.

I am being a bio snob today :>), but also not a bear; it’s a member of the raccoon family.

Whab. Or Wahb. I forget how it was spelled.

@crisw
Wikipedia classifies panda’s as bears: source”:Classification
For many decades the precise taxonomic classification of the Giant Panda was under debate because it shares characteristics of both bears and raccoons.[36] However, molecular studies suggest that the Giant Panda is a true bear and part of the Ursidae family,[37][38] though it differentiated early in history from the main ursine stock. The Giant Panda’s closest ursine relative is the Spectacled Bear of South America.[39] The Giant Panda has been referred to as a living fossil.[40]

The magnificent pedobear.

ucme's avatar

Thanks all! My fave real bear would be of the polar variety, I guess they’re just soooo cool. Tv bear would have to be this cool dude. My favourite cartoon bear vote goes to Nsfw Yogi! Just because ;¬}

This is the tune for the bears that can waltz: they are very photogenic, of course.

All the polar bear comments made me think of this clip from the quiz show QI. I love the vocal reaction to the comment made about polar bears.

I think Polar Bears are very majestic and awe inspiring because of their enormous size and rugged handsomeness.

Bear skin rugs

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Paddington or Yogi, but don’t like bear skin rugs.
My mother had a picture of me bare on a bear skin rug at age one. It got into the high school year book some how ! !

Trillian's avatar

This bear however, takes the biscuit.

Smokey Bear. When I see him I know I’m near a state forest. State forests are my favorite spots to visit here in the states.

Also, Little Bear. He reminds me of cuddle time with my children.

Paddington. He was the first bear that came to mind when I saw the question.
