Character Bio

Cub's father. A light brown bear. He is another adult character. Some people refer to him as the stereotypically clueless, bathrobe-wearing, pipe-smoking 1950s style sitcom father. He never appeared in any episode without Cub excluding his BBQ smoochie. Light Brown is a light shade of the color brown. ... In modern usage, a stereotype is a simplified mental picture of an individual or group of people who share a certain characteristic (or stereotypical) qualities. ... Bathrobe A bathrobe is a single-piece garment typically worn after bathing and in the privacy of ones home. ... Youth with pipe by Hendrick Jansz Terbrugghen A pipe is a tool used for smoking. ... A sitcom or situation comedy is a genre of comedy performance originally devised for radio but today typically found on television. ...

His son Cub often dies as a result of both his attention and inattention - although it's clear that he loves him. In the web series he usually didn't know of his son's deaths, but he is more aware of them in the TV series. He isn't very bright (like in "Easy For You To Sleigh", he pulled the fire detector off and later on killed himself and Cub because of the smoke) and when he tries to save his son, he often kills him and sometimes himself, too. Anyway, in both, the Internet shorts and the TV series, he survives almost every episode in which he appears. He survives all 3 TV episodes in which he is starring. It is still unknown whether Cub died or still lives in "A Hole Lotta Love".

Pop does not appear in as many episodes without his son. He originally was going to appear in the second part of "Happy Trails", but many considered it weird for Pop to kill Flaky. Instead Flippy took his place. However, Pop becomes more prominent in the TV shows.

Pop is one of the few characters in the show who has a much more intelligible way of speaking. He almost speaks clear words in some of the episodes he appears in and even reads a story of "The Night Before Christmas" to Cub in one of them.

One question on 'Question Kenn' asked if Disco Bear and Pop could be the same character, though this is certainly not the case as they have been seen as separate characters in episodes in which they both appeared in.

The fun fact of the "Collect Them All" section is that he even smokes in his sleep.

In the Halloween episode "Read 'em and Weep", Pop is a cheapskate as he's seen buying a scary book which is in the cent symbol box.

There is evidence in the recent episode "Can't Stop Coffin" that Pop may very well be a widower, due to the fact that in their cameo in the episode, he and Cub are seen mourning at a gravestone which probably belongs to his dead wife.
