Baby Bear and Curly Bear

Baby Bear originally appeared as a generic bear on Sesame Street in 1990. He made his first appearance as Baby Bear in a 1991 episode, hiding from his nemesis Goldilocks, who kept annoying him.

Around the time that Baby Bear became a regular character, he was paired with Telly Monster, and the two became best friends. Later, his parents, Papa Bear and Mama Bear, were introduced on the show. In 2003, his baby sister Curly Bear was born, turning the Three Bears into four.

In Season 31, Baby Bear created an imaginary friend, Hero Guy.

Baby Bear speaks with a speech impediment; more specifically, he pronounces his Rs as Ws. For example, "Super Hero" is pronounced by Baby Bear as "Supo Hewo". He likes to eat porridge.

In the 2002 special Elmo's World: Happy Holidays!, it was revealed that Baby Bear's family is Jewish. However, Baby Bear is seen participating happily in the Sesame Street Easter picnic in the 2007 book Rosita's Easter on Sesame Street; he brings Easter Braided Bread to the party. His birthday is May 12th.

In season 36 and 37, he was seen attending Storybook Community School.
