Mean Bear is an episode of Taz-Mania. It first aired 8 Nov 1994.
A bear is playing goofy tricks on The Bushrats, but to them it's frightening, so they leave their village. Meanwhile, Taz loses a battle with the tide and washes up on shore. The Bushrats stumble across him and think he will save them from the bear. They bring him food and treat him like a king. Taz develops a kind of friendship with the baby bushrat. The bear arrives and starts playing his goofy tricks on Taz. Taz falls for them all, but when the bear picks up the baby bushrat like a hot dog, Taz and the rest of The Bushrats work together to trip the bear. It drops the little one as it falls on its butt, then starts crying and runs away.
