Junyer Bear

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Another standout Jones creation, this overgrown, underbrained bruin is the bane of the existence of his short-fused father. Voiced with endearing idiocy by Stan Freberg -- his work on Bugs Bunny and the Three Bears in 1944 being some of his earliest professional work -- Junyer manages to make life miserable for his father, even when he tries, with great love, to do good things for his Pa. He reaches his high point in A Bear for Punishment (1951), with all sorts of tortures in store for his beloved Pa on Fathers Day.
