Thomas J. Bear LOVES chocolate. Audiences love chocolate and Thomas J. Bear. Here's a typical comment: "His eyes....he seems to be looking at me. He is so expressive!" Here is a picture of Thomas and me at a 2001 Christmas performance. See my red nose? It was cold and damp in California that day, but the audience was very warm.
HO HO HO...As you know Steve, I’m dedicated to bringing my unique all-year Santa humanity, wit, and charm into as many households, social groups, charities, VIP galas, and even to Hollywood. Pierre’s personality is quickly helping me achieve these goals!
In these 3 short weeks, Pierre and I have charmed 4 area chambers of commerce gatherings as I worked the crowd in these networking sessions. I’ve also had Pierre help entertain while I was interviewed for a local newspaper article! Yes, Pierre has already made the newspapers here in Columbus! He’s also appearing with me in a December magazine called “Columbus Parent”. We entertained the editors and staff children. The kids and adults loved Pierre’s silly ways.
Golly Steve, he’s wonderful. People everywhere love him. He’s not just for kids. Grown men and women bust out laughing when I engage them! Frankly, he’s stealing my show, but I suppose that’s true with all your clients! I’m DELIGHTED when I realize they don’t “watch me” they engage Piere in discussions!

POLAR BEAR !
Big Bear can be made into a polar bear for an additional charge of $50.
CHILL OUT DUDE!
What's with this hibernation thing? You get paid for doing nothing? Not a bad job. When you hibernate, do you do it with your eyes open or closed, or does it matter at all in the dark? Or do you leave a light on?
Where do they list caves for rent?
Do you prefer to eat in or take out?
Have you got a rug in your cave, or is that a sore point?
You spend a lot of time in the zoo, is that because the forest is a jungle?
Do you know Smokey personally or doesn't he ever get to your neck of the woods?
I was wondering -- If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound, or does it just pretend to?
Do polar bears go south for the winter? Do South Polar bears go north for the winter?
Were you ever a Cub Scout? If so, did you earn a badger badge?
What is your opinion of that whiner Pooh?
What do you think of Goldilocks? Should she have been arrested? Why are they letting her get away with it? Have you considered a class action suit? Do you even like porridge?
Speaking of Three Bears, who were your forebears?
What I'm about to share has happened to me a few time before, but it lways seems to awe me when this tiny miracle does present itself.
Gary Koepke: I'd use him as a middle aged athlete who's always talking sports... naturally he's from Chicago.
Bobo: Explaining humans to this bear could open up a whole world of funny.
Of course he never quite understands us.
James "Mike" Gerstenecker: I'd call him Sleeping Bear, my nickname, he always wants to fall asleep on me because it's hibernation time.
Glenn B. Holmes:He is the story telling bear of course. He can spin a yarn around the camp fire about the other woodland critters educating youngsters about how the forest is "home" to many. Reminding them that it is important to practice safe and responsible habits when on outings and camping. He is not above spreading a little juicy gossip about those naughty raccoons either.
Bobo: Because I do mission work, a big dumb bear that you have to explain everything to would go over big. And the audience would just happen to get the point as well. I think I would call him Jeepers, as in Jeepers Creepers.
Bobo: The bugs bunny character that was a big dumb guy. He always said things like, "Which way did he go George, which way did he go, Huh?"
This bear would be perfect for that. I have wanted to get into vent and this is just the character I could go with. The big dumb bear that calls everyone George.
Sharon: Right now I am at a blank on how I would use a giant bear. But, doing a health and nutrition show, I may just think of something.
:big bears cousin bruno outta Chi-town, runs a little joint called Da Bear Cave, featuring "Blues for Bruins"
Steve Axtell: Smokey Bear's Cousin Pyro!
Following are Bear Ideas from customers....
Bill DeMar -- This is how we tell it up here in Alaska, "How to tell what kind of bear is chasing you". If you're running, and you're running, and you run up a tree, and the bear follows you, its a black bear. If you're running, and you're running, and you run up a tree, and the bear shakes you out of the tree, it's a brown bear. If you're running, and you're running, and you can't find a tree, it's a polar bear.
Introduction - When I was a little girl I had a TeddyBear and I'd like to show you my Teddy Bear today. He grew up with me.
P.S. I'm not off my rocker!!! I'm a children's entertainer, who's goal is to inspire elementary school age children to read. This character is based on a popular children's book called "The Adventures of Captain Underpants". It's not my fault if the bear is impressionable.
Wacky ? Yes!!! Entertaining? Very!!!
Duane Smith: I would be using him to teach that Christians should bear one anothers burdens. The Lord is strong like the bear and longsuffering where our short comings are concerned and children of God need to be be big enough to forgive and forget wrongs done. Our crew will be on a jungle voyage when everything that can does go wrong. While everyone is on edge and at odds with one another. We encounter Bearly Able. Who helps each one to be patient and courteous regarding others before yourself.
Paul Stebelton / : Barney is quite the bear. He is a gentle giant. He loves children, but no not like he loves Ice Cream. And if the kids are real good, he loves to have them hug him after the presentation.
Tom Miehl / Elmo Higgins: Hi, I would use the bear for a parody of hunter´s season. Me and the bear would both talk about hunting hunters, andd how different they taste, and so on.... okay, it´s not kindergarten stuff, but I guess older kids will like that cynic fun, too
Paul Stebelton, : This bear fears baring it all. He is shy and even though very large he is gentle and quiet. But does he have some big ideas on how we should treat each other with respect. He has protected several forest creatures from harm.
Kelley Jarvis email: : I would call him "Manfred" aka "Man's friend" and use him as a spokes animal for a local Nature program to teach children and adults the importants of taking care of our world and the animals we share it with.
Douglas C. James Party Time Magic & Entertainment: Big Bear will talk to young ones about how appearances are deceiving. He could share with the children that even though he is big and strong he still has feelings and needs kindness as we all do. "I just can't 'bear' rude folks, as a matter of fact I have a politeness 'claws' in my contract."
