BUDDY BEAR is a shy, disorganized brown bear who walks with his toes pointed in, partially because he is bashful and partially because his pants force him to move that way. Buddy is aware that he is not on the "best dressed" list. He's very sensitive about the fact that his pants always look like they are falling down. He has to work hard and scratch his head to come up with an idea. He is quite loveable, though, and can be seen hugging kids much of the time. Buddy speaks with a long, slow, Southern drawl.
