Positive Role Models
Bears are generally kindhearted though fairly hapless. They do try to see the good in others and help others when possible.
Main characters are male bears, though they do show some diversity through counter-stereotypical behavior. Minimal human characters in series.

Violence & Scariness
Slapstick cartoon violence, including weapons like spears that are used but never cause injury. Injuries and violence often played for laughs. Mild verbal hostility from mean characters, including threats. Fantastical creatures that put the baby bears in peril, though it always seems like they'll escape unscathed (and they do).

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that We Baby Bears is a prequel spin-off of the series We Bare Bears. While the bears themselves are babies, the show is intended for older grade school kids. There's some slapstick cartoon violence, including weapons like spears that are used but never cause injury. Verbal hostility and mild injuries caused by mean characters are often played for laughs. Fantastical creatures put the baby bears in peril, though it always seems like they'll escape unscathed (and they do). Language in the show is clean but with some cursing-adjacent words like "heck." Otherwise, the show is whimsical and fun, and the adorable bears display an incredible amount of perseverance as their attempts to find a new home are continually thwarted.
Is It Any Good?
Fans of We Bare Bears will enjoy this much-anticipated prequel. The characters and voice performances in We Baby Bears are over the top adorable (like one scene where a bear falls and says "I'm covered in boo boos" and proceeds to smother his own arm in kisses). Kids familiar with the grown-up versions of the bears will like seeing them as little kids. Since the bears visit a new potential home in each episode, it's also fun to see them interact with all kinds of creatures and worlds. The unfailingly optimistic bears model positive attitudes, though that is counterbalanced by a lot of mean characters who seem unnecessarily violent at times. There's nothing super new or transcendent in this spin-off, but it's a treat for kid and grown-up fans of the original series to spend more time with these characters.
