This is a list of the various fictional characters that appear in the Berenstain Bears series of books and all associated media.


Main characters

The bear family in The Big Honey Hunt consisted of Mama Bear, Papa Bear, and son Small Bear (later named Brother Bear). They began their own line of books about the bears in 1974 with The Berenstain Bears and the New Baby which added daughter Sister Bear to the family and changed Small Bear's name to Brother Bear. In 2000, baby sister Honey Bear was introduced with The Berenstain Bears and Baby Makes Five, after having dealt with Mama Bear's pregnancy in the previous book The Birds, the Bees, and the Berenstain Bears. Between the two books, there was a contest for readers to name the baby.
