Citizen Tabes Gallery Transcript

Citizen Tabes[2] is the 21th episode of the third season of We Bare Bears and the 73rd episode overall.


After Ranger Tabes accidentally wounds an animal and quits her job, the Bears do what they can to get her to return to work.


The episode begins with Ranger Tabes checking on all the wildlife in the forest, the Bears accompanying her. They soon notice a pair of deer beginning to mate. A pair of beavers near them are gnawing down a tree, which soon begins to fall down on the deer. The female deer leaps out of the way, but the male deer is staying still. Ranger Tabes dives in to save him before it falls. Unfortunately, it results in one of his antlers breaking off, and the female deer to leave him. Ranger Tabes, feeling guilty about "destroying the balance of nature", leaves to think about her actions.




  • The title of the episode is a reference to the classic film, Citizen Kane.
  • This episode reveals Tabes' first name to be Dana.
  • Tabes' online shop is a possible reference to Etsy.
  • It is ironic that during the fight against Homewrecker, Grizzly did not take part, as grizzly bears in real life do hunt deer for food.

Culture References

  • The fight between Little Buck and Homewrecker is similar to the fight between Bambi and Ronno in Bambi, and to a lesser extent, Simba and Scar from The Lion King.
  • The composition of the last scene is similar to the Lion King.
  • This episode is similar to the Regular Show episode, Prankless:
    • Ranger Tabes and Muscle Man from Regular Show quit their passions, (for Ranger Tabes, being a park ranger and for Muscle Man, pranking) after getting a living thing hurt.
    • The Bears and Benson try to get their friends to go back to doing what they do best.
    • Ranger Tabes and Muscle Man come to their friends rescue and return to what they use to do.
