In "Tooth," Mabel brings Bear-O on Dipper's excursion. Mabel insists that everyone loves Bear-O, though a flashback shows the opposite. After Bear-O is left on the shore by Dipper, Mabel stops rowing for a short time and holds up a sign asking viewers if they want more Bear-O. At the end of the short, she holds up Bear-O again, scaring Dipper.
The animatronic beaver at Hoo-Ha Owl's Pizzamatronic Jamboree resembles Bear-O. Bear-O also makes a minor appearance on the ending slide of "Soos and the Real Girl," and his name is the key for the episode's cipher.
Bear-o is a worn out bear puppet with stuffing peeking out of its various tears, including the sides of its head, arm, and leg. It has brown fur and a pink face, with a long snout. It has one front tooth and eyes that point in different directions. It wears yellow overalls with one pocket in the front. It also wears a brown boater hat.
- Bear-O is based on Billy Bob Brockali of the animatronic band, The Rock-afire Explosion.Template:Citation needed
