We Bare Bears Wiki
Advertisement

Most censorships against We Bare Bears are applied by Turner EMEA & Turner International India (Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa). Censorship of the show has been observed in Europe, Russia, Africa, the Middle East, India and Latin America. These censors mainly occur due to the differences in television guidelines and culture between the United States with other countries. Notably, a lot of the censorship of this show is regarding Ice Bear and his Fridge as many countries have issues with showing persons inside of refrigerators.

Pilot[]

When the Pilot was originally released at the KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival, a couple of scenes had to be censored to follow S&P (Standards and Practices).[1]

  • During the montage sequence where various photos of The Bears wrecking the party are shown, the following two were cut:
    • A photo of Ice Bear holding a dead deer while several children cower in terror and
    • A photo of Grizzly messing with a child in a porta-potty.
  • During the Pilot's international broadcast, many scenes were cut. This censorship included:
    • The scene where Grizzly rides in on a chair and opens the fridge to reveal Ice Bear.
    • The scene where Panda is wallowing in grief and singing an off-key song. It immediately cuts to Grizz banging on the closet door.
    • Most of the conversation between Grizz and Panda through the closet.
    • The scene involving Panda's conversation between Susan and him.
    • The scene when Grizz throws away Panda's phone.
    • A moment when Ice Bear is covered with fruit punch, likely because the punch resembled blood.
    • The portion of the song that was recycled from the beginning when the ice cream cake flies through the air, leaving only the words ice cream cake.
    • The entire scene where Panda's phone is present.
      • His phone doesn't make a single appearance at all in the censored pilot.

Brother Up[]

  • After Panda scares off the wolves, the moment where Charlie came out of the bushes and ran towards him was strangely cut, causing it to look as if he came out of nowhere.

Emergency[]

  • Near the beginning of the episode, the scene with Grizzly and Panda jumping on top of Ice Bear preceding Captain Craboo's introduction was cut.
  • At the end of the episode, Grizzly climbing over Ice Bear one last time for a popsicle was also cut. The episode ends with a zoom-in on Ice Bear's face.

Video Date[]

  • The moment we see Ice Bear go to his fridge with Panda's computer has been cut so the scene begins when Ice Bear is already sitting in the fridge and says wrote poems...
  • Panda opening the fridge was also cut. Instead, the scene begins when he already uses the fire extinguisher.
  • The scene where Panda sees the roof of the fridge has been cut.
  • The release of Ice Bear by the roof of the fridge has also been cut, and begins when he is already out of the fridge by the roof.

Season 2[]

Nom Nom's Entourage[]

  • During a video, the short clip of Andy Bangs popping out of a coffin was cut in Europe, most likely due to the morbid nature of the joke.

Rooms[]

  • The scene where Grizzly first enters the fridge was cut, causing the scene to start with him already inside.
  • The scene entire 35-second segment where Grizzly finds the glow-stick in the fridge was also removed.

Bear Flu[]

  • All of the scenes of Ice Bear's fridge opening and closing were removed.
  • The scene where the now sickly Bears start behaving nonsensically and Chloe is holding her head in frustration was cut. This scene instead begins directly when Chloe yells at the three to stop.

Captain Craboo[]

  • The episode begins with Ice Bear already up.
  • The whole scene where Ice Bear is seen sitting in his fridge was cut in France. In the censored version, he is seen standing. The scene where he locks himself to sleep is cut too.

  • The scene where Yuri taught baby Ice Bear how to hold a knife was censored in India.

Grizz Helps[]

  • The scenes where the Mad Scientist locks himself and then opens the door of the fridge was cut.

Neighbors[]

  • In CN Asia, the only thing mentioned about the suspicious neighbor on TV is just throwing away the cat, leaving the arson incident cut.
  • Much of the neighbors' supposed violent scenes are cut in Asian airings, notably Warren sharpening his knife, the dream sequence (only the attack & Grizz being taken under the bed) & Warren whipping out his knife before confessing.

Season 3[]

$100[]

  • The scene where the three baby bears cross the road without looking was cut.

Planet Bears[]

  • In the scene where Ice Bear gives orange juice to Grizz has been cut, the orange juice is directly teleported into the legs of Grizz.

The Nom Nom Show[]

  • All the scenes where we can see multiple padlocks that close the submerged box were cut off. The scenes where Ice Bear searches for the keys and where he tries to open the padlocks were also cut.
    • The only scenes where we see the padlocks are when Grizz and Panda are trying to free Nom Nom and when Ice Bear breaks the box.

Ice Cave[]

  • The scene where Ice Bear looks in the fridge has been shortened so it starts when Ralph begins to appear in the shadows.
  • The scene where Ralph is touched by the dust of the cheese balls has been cut.

Charlie's Halloween Thing[]

  • The scene where Ice Bear locks the plush in the fridge has been cut.
  • In the scene where Ice Bear lights the oven, we see the plush burn alive with the heart that has melted, this scene was cut so it begins directly when we see the flames.

Bunnies[]

  • In the scene where Panda begins to be cuddled by rabbits saying Embrace my bosom! has been cut. (The scene starts straight when he gets lifted by the rabbits.)

Bear Lift[]

  • One part of the shot where the bears carry the lesbian couple is cut in Russia. To cover this up, the previous shot of the man standing next to the packages was extended. The rest of the bear stack scene is not cut and the audio remains unchanged.

Hurricane Hal[]

  • The scene where Chloe and Ice Bear realize that they are in a subway tunnel is shortened.
  • The scene where we see from back Ice Bear who uses the rollers to flee the subway is cut.

I, Butler[]

  • The scene where the wild animals come out of the Robot Bear’s washing machine has been edited to have the machine empty (but we can still hear the sound of the animals coming out of the washing machine).

The Limo[]

  • In the scene where Panda realizes that he is not on the sidewalk goes directly to the plane where the shadow of the bus appears on him.

El Oso[]

  • The scene where Knives twirls his knife has been replaced by a non-animated image of El Oso, sitting on his chair, his feet on the table (the audio has not been replaced or cut).
  • It's unlikely that episode's skipped in Asian airings, given that it's violent.

Mom App[]

  • The scene where Ice Bear and the bears get locked in the fridge to cancel the first mom was cut.

Baby Orphan Ninja Bears[]

  • In CN Southeast Asia (and eventually the Philippines), the scene where the Baby Bears go over a taxi & into the sewer are both cut from initial airings. (The former indicates being hit by a car & the latter because of plausible imitation).

We Bare Bears: The Movie[]

  • At the start of the movie with the baby bears on the rails of a train, the scene where Panda says he wants to live in a cool place was cut in the French and UK versions.
  • In the European Spanish HBO Max release of the movie, the last ten minutes of the movie were accidentally cut [2], resulting in the movie ending with Trout successfully capturing the bears with a last shot of Grizz trapped in a cage in the reserve alone without his brothers, with the following scene being the credits scene featuring other bears celebrating happily with happy music.
