According to his label, Mr Bear is a "tangible representation" of the "rugged, determined and proud history" of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, but Mr Monkey thinks he's a little too fluffy to be totally rugged. Mr Bear was sent from Toronto by Mr Monkey's friend Patricia when Mr Monkey claimed he needed a Mountie's hat. Patricia had felt bad about separating a bear from its hat, and had both bear and headgear flown over. It turned out that while Mr Bear was willing to share his hat with Mr Monkey, his hat was just a little too large for Mr Monkey. So Mr Bear kept his hat.
