** Brother Bear is also severely grounded by Papa in ''Report Card Trouble'' for a terrible report card, being stripped of basically everything except studying until his grades improve. Mama at first approves of this completely, only putting her foot down when the grounding threatens to get out of hand, but eventualy realizes that they should have been checking his work as parents too.

** The cartoon version of "Too Much Junk Food" gives Papa and the cubs a reason to quit junk food - an annual race is coming up in Bear Country and the three find themselves wearing out after running a few miles. A visit to Dr. Grizzly has them realize they have to start eating healthy in order become fit for the race. One notable difference is that in the book Mama puts the junk food in the freezer so that the family would forget about them, whereas in the cartoon the cubs themselves put the snacks in the freezer after their visit to Dr. Grizzly.

Also, in original book, Mama and Dr. Grizzly manage to take the family clean off junk food, whereas the cartoon is more moderate with Dr. Grizzly stating that it's okay to eat such things from time to time.

* AllBikersAreHellsAngels: In the PBS version of "New Neighbors," one of the reasons is that the mother of the house of the new neighbors rides a motorcycle, and Papa Bear apparently has this stereotype. Things finally come out alright in the end when Mama Bear ends up finding the motorcycle rather helpful for things like errands, and Papa resolves his feelings about the father of the house, whose lawn-mower machine he didn't trust at first.

because that's not the real last names of the creators, duh.
Note the spelling of the name, by the way. It's a common error.[[note]]So why not the surname Berenstein?[[/note]]

** The cartoon version of "The Trouble with Grown Ups" gives an explanation as to Mama & Papa's bad tempers - Papa's jigsaw breaks down, so he needs to use the "for sale" section of the paper (which is why he gets mad at Brother for taking it without asking), and Mama has been expecting an important call, which is why she gets mad at Sister for hogging the phone. Also, Mama and Papa apologize for being hard on the cubs, and point out that while they agree that it isn't always easy being a cub, being a parent isn't easy either, leading to the role reversal when Brother and Sister disagree.

* LighterAndSofter: The 2003 series. The adaption of "Get the Gimmes", along with the moral expansion, takes out the tantrum scene, whilst the adaption of "The Messy Room" has Mama actually tell the cubs ''reasonably'' to clean their room.

* ParentsAsPeople: Papa and Mama Bear are not without their flaws. Papa can be oafish and Mama can be somewhat righteous. And both of them have been shown to lose their temper at times (e.g. Papa in ''Trouble with Money'' or Mama in ''The Messy Room''). Also, ''The Trouble with Grownups'' is a virtual lampshading of part of trope, although it examines the parent-child relationship from both sides of the fence.
