We Bare Bears Wiki
The Island Gallery Transcript

The Island is the 10th episode of the second season of We Bare Bears and the 36th episode overall. It premiered during a Back-to-Back Bear Stack event.[2]


While trying to sail to Japan, The Baby Bears get stranded on an island. Luckily, they meet Dave and Karla, who help with survival on the island while looking for an escape.


The episode starts with the Baby Bears lost at sea. As they float along the waters, Baby Grizzly is watching their surroundings through his hand-made binocular while Baby Ice Bear is attempting to guide their box that has been left adrift. Baby Panda attempts to savor some crumbs from a granola box, but can't eat much as they're trying to preserve it as long as possible.

Suddenly, a massive wave comes, and the Baby Bears are washed up on an island. Baby Grizzly believes that they are in Japan, but claims that there were less buildings then he expected. They decide to explore the island, but they are chased by a large reptile. The Baby Bears finally escape, but find themselves stuck in quicksand. Dave and Karla come to the rescue by using a vine to pull the Baby Bears out.

Karla is glad to know that the Baby Bears are okay, and Dave asks if a rescue team is coming. Baby Grizzly explains that they were washed up in their box, and asks if they are in Japan. Dave tells them that they aren't at their destination, but Karla reassures them. Baby Panda tells Karla that she is lucky to be stranded with Dave, believing that he is Karla's husband. However, Dave explains that they were shipwrecked separately.

As Baby Panda introduces himself and his brothers, Dave starts to write in a journal. Baby Grizzly wants to see what he is writing. Dave claims that he was a travel blogger, and nervously takes his journal back. Karla offers to let the bears stay with her and Dave, and Baby Panda says that he will go if they have food.

At Dave and Karla's home, everyone is relaxing and the Baby Bears are telling stories. Dave says that he is going to sleep, and Karla tries to get the Baby Bears to sleep as well. Baby Grizzly says that they will sleep if Karla sings them a song. After she finishes singing, Baby Grizzly asks if she is missing home, to which Karla replies that she does and tells them that they will get off the island.

The next morning, Baby Ice Bear goes to help Dave get coconuts from the tree. At the top of the tree, Baby Ice Bear is surprised to spot a helicopter in the distance. He races down the tree and gets Dave to follow him. Meanwhile, Baby Grizzly wakes up and asks Baby Panda where Baby Ice Bear is. Baby Panda says that he must be out for a jog. Karla offers them fruit for breakfast. Baby Ice Bear takes Dave to the hut and tries to act out what he wants to tell them. Baby Grizzly says that he really needs to teach Baby Ice Bear how to talk. Baby Ice Bear runs away, and Baby Grizzly says that they are supposed to follow him. Baby Ice Bear leads everyone to the abandoned helicopter. Baby Grizzly suggests to go inside, but Dave says that it may not be safe inside. Karla says that they may be able to get the engine to work. Dave does not seem to want the helicopter to fix. Baby Panda says that there may be emergency supplies in the back, but they find nothing. Dave says that they should leave.

Karla is upset because she believes it was her last chance. Dave tries to comfort her, but Karla says that she needs to be alone. Dave follows after her. Baby Grizzly feels sorry for Karla, and Panda suggests that they collected some food from the forest to surprise her. Baby Grizzly agrees, saying that Karla will explode with happiness. They set out to find food, and Baby Ice Bear sees a box. Baby Grizzly and Baby Panda follow him, and discover that it contains emergency supplies. Baby Grizzly opens it and sees an inflatable raft. Baby Grizzly and Baby Panda are excited to use it to get Karla off the island. Dave finds the Baby Bears and asks what they are doing. Baby Grizzly explains that they will be able to escape, but Dave runs away with the box. Baby Panda says that Dave is taking it for himself, and the Baby Bears chase after him.

Dave is stopped at a cliff and says to forget about the box, but the Baby Bears try to take it from him anyways. Furious, Dave throws the Baby Bears and the box off the edge and into the quicksand. He says that Karla can't know how to get off the island since it is the only way to win her heart. He says that she will be as madly in love with him as he is with her, and he will stay on the island as long as he has to. Baby Grizzly says that his love is about "lies and deceit". Baby Panda calls Dave a "weird creeper", and says that they will escape and tell Karla about Dave's plan. They continue to sink. Baby Grizzly dives under and opens the raft, and all the Baby Bears land on it. Baby Grizzly says that they are free, and that they need to save Karla.

Karla is sitting by herself. Dave comes and brings water to her, and then asks if she is okay. Karla says that she worries that they will never get off the island. Dave says that it isn't that bad since they have food, shelter, and each other. Baby Grizzly and Baby Ice Bear are standing on a branch, and start to throw coconuts at Dave. Baby Grizzly tells Karla to get away, and explains that Dave only wants Karla to fall in love with him. Dave tries to prove innocence by saying that he has been helpful, but Baby Panda comes in with Dave's journal. Dave tries to attack the Baby Bears, saying that they have messed everything up. Karla says that if it wasn't for him, they could be at home.

The Baby Bears help Karla run away, and Baby Ice Bear throws one last coconut at Dave. Enraged, Dave chases after them. Karla, Baby Grizzly, and Baby Panda board the raft, but Dave grabs Baby Ice Bear. Karla tells him to let go of Baby Ice Bear, and Dave says that he won't unless Karla promises to love him. Baby Ice Bear grabs a starfish and throws it at Dave, then he boards the raft with his brothers.

That night, Karla and the Baby Bears are on the raft far into the ocean. The Baby Bears are asleep and shivering, so Karla puts her blanket over them. Karla then goes to sleep, and a rescue boat comes. They bring Karla on to the boat, but they don't see the Baby Bears since they are under the blanket.

The next morning, the Baby Bears are washed up somewhere else. They wake up, and Baby Grizzly asks where they are. Baby Panda asks where Karla went, but Baby Grizzly interrupts him. He excitedly points and says that they had made it to Japan, to which Panda replies, "Oh, isn't that peachy?"




  • The Island
  • Japan



  • In this episode, along with other ones that feature the Baby Bears during infancy, Baby Ice Bear has been shown to speak nothing at all, which makes it hard for Baby Grizzly and Baby Panda to understand what he tries to express. Baby Grizzly mentions that they've got to teach Baby Ice Bear how to talk some time. This may hint that Baby Ice Bear's brothers taught him how to speak as they grew.
  • When the Baby Bears introduce themselves to Karla and Dave, Baby Panda tells them his brothers names and was almost about to say Baby Ice Bear's name until Baby Grizzly interrupted him saying to Dave "Hey, what are you doing?"
  • When Dave says that if he's ever been helpful to Karla and the Baby Bears, Baby Grizzly also mentions that twice to his brothers Baby Panda and Baby Ice Bear in the very first episode "Pilot".
  • When the Baby Bears are gathering fruit for Karla, Baby Panda picks up a durian and suggests against adding it. This may be in reference to Daniel Chong's Singaporean heritage, where the fruit is considered a delicacy. However, its foul smell makes the fruit undesirable to foreigners.
  • When Dave grabs Baby Ice Bear by his feet, this is the first episode Karla calls him a little jellybean.
  • When Baby Ice Bear had ninja stars in the past episodes, this is the first episode he uses a starfish to throw in Dave's face and this episode shows how he first learns to throw and use stars as he grew up and wanted to learn karate.

Cultural References[]

  • Dave saying "So long and thanks for all the fruit" was possibly a reference to Douglas Adams' book So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish.
  • The way Dave was trying to keep Karla on the island is reminiscent of a method a person can do to give their soon-to-be victim Stockholm Syndrome, a condition that causes the one who's held hostage to grow feelings of loyalty, sympathy, or even affection towards their captor.

  • During the ending sequence, as the boat sails off, it's slightly above the water rather than on it, leaving a gap between the ship and the water.
  • In some scene, Karla is shown with either three or four toes.
