Teddy Bear

Teddy Bear

Teddy Bear and his extensive family live in Bear Green, tucked away in a big wood where they are hidden from the world. However, their world is not very different to ours except that the bears mostly live in houses hollowed out of trees. Teddy's Russian uncle, Ivan, lives in a Russian-style house to remind him of home and Uncle Fred, who dresses like a tramp but is actually very rich, lives in a mansion. Other family members include Mummy, Daddy, Grandma, Grizzly (Teddy's sister who is always crying), Bookworm (Teddy's scholarly brother), Bare Bear (the baby of the family) and cousins Hill Billy Bear and Snowy.
