Sister Bear is one of the main characters of the Berenstain Bears series. She is Papa Bear and Mama Bear's cute and very beautiful second child and Brother Bear's younger sister (by two years); and as of The Berenstain Bears and Baby Makes Five, she is a middle child. Sister Bear is 4 years old (later 6 years old) today. Although, in the 2003 series "The Berenstain Bears", her teacher at school has said that she is only 8. She's voiced by Taija Isen of Atomic Betty fame.
Sister was first introduced in The Berenstain Bears’ New Baby in 1974.
Sister Bear is an excellent jump roper and despite her cuteness and beauty can sometimes be a bit of a show off when she doesn't know it. Sister also constantly hates gym class and once even tried to get Mama Bear to let her NOT go to school, until Brother Bear explained exactly what exersise was. Sister also tries to fit in at school and even goes so far to listening to fourth grade rap music.
Sister's usual outfit consists of a white long-sleeved blouse with pink polka dots, frilly pink overalls, white camisole, white panties and a pink ribbon tied in a bow. The color pink is always used on her outfits, even when she is dressed in costume (e.g. her costume in The Berenstain Bears Get Stage Fright and her costume in The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat). In the animated series, the polka dots on her blouse are omitted, most likely because it helped simplify the animation process.
