Storyline

While eating breakfast, Papa Bear reads a newspaper advertisement for a trick bear act and decides his family will audition for said act. The bear family practices each act, but Junior Bear continuously ruins the rehearsal (usually through his stupidity or weight). In the end, a frustrated Papa Bear discovers the ad in question came from a April 1928 newspaper. He tries to commit suicide but is saved by Junior, who gets clocked for his trouble!

ah, family life...
28 October 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

When I see what happens to the Three Bears in Chuck Jones's cartoons, it's easy to see this ursine brood as a possible inspiration for "All in the Family" (Jones in fact often compared the two series). In this case, they try to form a vaudeville act, but Pa always suffers due to Junyer's incompetence (and body mass)! And finally, Ma reveals something that would have helped earlier!

Jones retired the Three Bears in 1951 (I guess that he wanted to concentrate on Pepe Le Pew and Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote). Even in the few years that they were one of his personal groups of stars, they sure did some hilarious stuff. "Bear Feat" is definitely a classic. Bea Benaderet, Billy Bletcher and Stan Freberg were great voice artists just like Mel Blanc was.
