Top 5 Bears – Biff, Winnie, and Yogi Bear

With the recent bear sightings in the Albany Area, I thought it would be fun to remember some of my favorite bears. From the imaginary Biff, The Friendly Purple Bear to the iconic Winnie The Pooh, I hope you'll find one of your favorite bears on the list.





Yogi debuts in 1958 as the supporting character in the Huckleberry Hound Show. In 1961, he lands his own TV show. The Hanna-Barbera star introduced us to a cast of characters like Boo-Boo, Ranger Smith, Snagglepuss, and Yakky Doodle.


Fozzie Bear



Wocka! Wocka! Frank Oz voiced this Muppet Show favorite who was often booed or yanked off the stage because of his bad jokes. Even with his aweful jokes, Fozzie always lands a major role in any Muppet film.


Winnie The Pooh



Winnie The Pooh may be the oldest bear on our list! The first collection of Pooh stories came to life in 1926 from the creative mind of A.A.Milne. In 1961, as his image evolved, he was licensed to Walt Disney Productions, where he became the child hood star we all still love today.


Biff, The Friendly Purple Bear



Biff is a fictional furry friend created by songwriter Dick Feller. Feller penned the hits 'East Bound and Down' and 'Lord Mr. Ford' for Jerry Reed. In 1973, he released the story of 'Biff, The Friendly Purple Bear' as a single which surprisingly charted at No. 22.


The Country Bears



The stars of Disney's popular theme park attraction, The Country Bear Jamboree, hit the big screen in 2002. Western dressed Bears singing Country Music go together like tea and honey!
