Single Brown Grizzly Bear seeking some new bear icons for possible long term relationship and maybe more. Ursus.

Yes, I am getting a tad tired of my icon for the time being so I thought I would put out the call to my fellow GC iconsmiths and denizens of the web.

    This is a cute little drawing I found on the web.

   But Perhaps this one with a bloody muzzle is more how you wish to view yourself.

   Last Night I learned this flame technique. Now I don't know why a grizzly would be on fire but I'd assume it's his personal fashion statement.

I like this one. He's posing perfectly.

Whereas this one is on a movie theme, but I think too scary...

But if Ursus likes to burn things as much as I do, he might like this "Never mess with a bad-ass bear with super-powers, bitch" attitude of this:

He's Bear from Bear in the Big Blue House, a Henson (Muppet) production now owned by Disney. It is by far my favorite kids show with really fun music (at least during the first 3 or so seasons). I even listen to the CDs while driving.

Your very lucky you have someone in your life. :P

Hey, so Bear in the big blue house has someone named Ojo! Is he/she lucky? I had a good friend named Ojo who used to feed me cheese. He lived in a blue house. Oh and my neighbor had a blue bear rug...

What do mean? For years, I had shared Bear in the Big Blue House with practically everybody I knew who had a kid from 1 to 5 years of age. I told my friends and coworkers. Lots of their kids received Bear tapes, books, videos, glow-in-the-dark books, etc. from me.

The show was brought to my attention from my cousin who was attending Berkeley at the time. We even went to the Bear in the Big Blue House stage show a while back (sure, we were the only grownups in the place without a kid in tow, but so what?).

Ojo is the only female main character and she's a spunky, tomboyish (but girly, too) little bear cub. She didn't live in the Big Blue House until the 4th season (I think). In the beginning, only Bear and Tutter (the blue mouse) lived in the Big Blue House while Pip and Pop (the purple otters) lived by the otter pond and Treelo (the ringtailed lemur) lived in the trees . Ojo lived in a house somewhere close (her bedroom was seen during the song "Shadow's Lullaby").

Oh, I'm just friendily razing you. My comment can be either taken as a) listening to "Bear in the big blue house" on CD in a car will scare potentially normal mates away or b) you sure are lucky to have someone to share your unique and idiosynchratic taste with.

> For years, I had shared Bear in the Big Blue House with practically everybody I knew who had a kid from 1 to 5 years of age.

I hadn't heard of it when my niece was young enough, alas. I did like to share zaboomafoo and tellitubby moments with her though.

Neat. When I made my literary debut back in 1913 the hero of my story was a boy named Ojo the (un)Lucky. He lived in a blue house (he was a Munchkin after all) with his Unc Nunkie.

Underdog- How cute, the bear is posing. And, I believe the other guy in the photo has shat himself ;)

IronS- Bear has long been a favorite (besides Blue's Clues) when I eat breakfast in the morning before leaving for school. Sadly, as secure in my masculinity as I am, I don't think people would take me that seriously (as if they do now ;p)if I were to change to Bear as my icon.

Artifex- Ain't nothin' funny about a bear getting kicked in the crotch... sadly, what they don't show in that commercial is the bear chasing him down a few seconds later to maul the crap out of the guy :)

Woozy- no more fire.

For a long time I had Buster Rabbit as my icon. In a pink and mint green shirt, too. :) I'm thinking about putting him back, again.

It'd be fun if we all went to our favorite kiddie icons. Time to brush off my Tinky-winky outfit. Or if we go back to my childhood, my Donkey Hodie outfit.

If we did that, I'd go back to Robby Rabbit. When Sanrio stores hit our local malls, he was the only boy character, except for Tuxedo Sam, who was only on baby stuff :) So since my mom dragged me along to find stuff for my sister there, often...

Ah, I didn't mean the icons we nescessarily liked as kids but the icons from kiddy culture that we identify with. e.g. Buster (is it Buster Rabbit or Buster Bunny?) and Bear and Tinky-winky (or am I more a Dipsy; Po is my favorite Teletubbie but I do think I'm much like her; Dipsy maybe but he might be a bit too hip for me to pull off). So just think how ... interesting ... these boards would be if suddenly Ursus appeared as Bear in the big blue house and you appeared as Buster Rabbit, I as Tinky-winky, IronS as Kermit the frog or Ojo, etc.

I did do Big the Cat, Pogo Possum, Urania the Muse, and, of course, the Woozy of Oz, but those aren't nescessarily "kiddie", are they?

I knew you were a bear of excellent taste! "Blue's Clues", although not in the same league as "Bear in the Big Blue House" (whose music encompassed rock, pop, hip-hop, R&B, cha-cha, mambo, gospel, latin-infused jazz, C&W and even bossa nova), is fun. How can a show that has a song with "chartreuse" in it be otherwise?

So, who do you prefer, Steve or Joe? I think I prefer Steve because he's the original and I haven't seen enough episodes with Joe.

Oh, I'm sure you'll be taken as seriously as ever even if you were to use Ursa or Ojo as your icon. :)

I absolutely abhor Teletubbies (I saw one episode and it totally freaked me out) so if your icon is one of them things, I promise never to talk/write to you again.
