Get ready to fall in love with We Baby Bears, a spin-off of Cartoon Network Studios’ all-time favourite animated series, We Bare Bears. The enchanted journey follows three bear siblings, Grizz, Panda and Ice Bear – as their younger baby selves – travelling up, up and far away in a magical box to fantastic new worlds in search of a place to call home. Along the way, they meet new friends, learn a few lessons, and discover that ‘home’ can be wherever they are, as long as they’re together.
[“From Grizz, the leader and life of the party, to Panda, who’s heart is as big as his love for his phone, and Ice Bear, the mega talented and youngest of the bunch: each of our bear bros has a funny and bold personality, and they are always there for each other when things get… a little crazy.]
We Bare Bears director, Manny Hernandez, returns as executive producer to bring his creative vision to life in the newest iteration of the sibling cubs’ arrival. “Manny’s admiration for anime and music comes to life in this fresh, new expansion of a beloved franchise,” said Tom Ascheim, President, Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics (GKYAC). “The spectacular landscapes and musical inspirations transform this new series into an unforgettable journey for all We Bare Bears’ fans and beyond”.

Meet the Characters!
GRIZZ is the eldest brother. He’s a puppy-like go-getter with a heart of gold and a brain of impulsive choices. He’s a natural-born leader who is totally ready to face any problem head-on, even if it gets him and his brothers into trouble. Grizz is not shy or quiet; he’s a big-time extrovert. Grizz is open, warm, and positive. The only thing he loves more than adventure are his brothers.
PANDA may look cute and soft on the outside, but he’s even MORE cute and soft on the inside, and he knows it! Panda is the middle child, making him a bit of an attention-seeking diva. He loves all things shiny, sparkly, and hip, especially his cell phone. Although he can be a bit melodramatic, he’s always ready to step up and help his brothers when things get rough.
ICE BEAR is the youngest and certifiably the coolest. He can kick butt, speak ten different languages, and cook a gourmet dinner for three. Ice Bear remains modest despite his many skills and doesn’t like to be the centre of attention. He loves his brothers, and he’s always there to get them out of a tricky situation, even if he has to break the rules of animation to do so.
