Storyline

The Bear That Wasn't is a ten minute animated short about a bear that settles down for his long winter nap. While he is asleep the progress of man continues. He wakes up to find himself in the middle of an industrial complex. He then gets confused by the foreman as a worker and is told to work. To this he responds, "but I'm not a man, I'm a Bear." He is taken to each of his successive bosses, who try to convince him that he is just a very hairy man that needs a shave... Written by <kendel@livenet.net>

Excellent cartoon about being who (or what) you are, whatever others believe you are

Every time I see this cartoon, I remember what Anatole France once reportedly said: "If a thousand people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing." This cartoon is about a bear and the nightmare his life becomes when others persist in believing a foolish thing and manage to briefly convince him that it's the truth. Remember wht Shakespeare said: "To thine own self be true". This runs occasionally on Cartoon Network. Most recommended
