Storyline

It's breakfast time, and Pa finds the honeypot empty. Literally risking life and limb, he has Junyer help him raid a nearby beehive. In the end, he finds he should have listened to Ma in the first place, rather than telling her to "Shaddap!" Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

honey practices the right to "bear" arms
14 December 2008 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Chuck Jones debuted this dysfunctional ursine brood in 1944's "Bugs Bunny and the Three Bears" and then turned them into recurring characters before retiring them after "A Bear for Punishment" (I guess that he wanted to focus more on Pepe Le Pew and Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote). In one of their funniest outings, the Three Bears run out of honey after the brain-dead Junyer eats the entire jar. So, the eternally angry Pa tries everything possible to retrieve honey out of a beehive, so guess what happens! He should have listened to Ma!

The Three Bears were a total parody of the notion of the nuclear family. Chuck Jones once asserted that they predicted "All in the Family" by about twenty years: the grouchy father, the mousy mother, and the next generation doesn't belong. Whatever they were, the bears always represented the hilarity that the Warner Bros. cartoons constituted during their prime, and "The Bee-Deviled Bruin" is a hoot. You're sure to love it.
