* In the ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' episode "Turkey in a Can", Bob is MistakenForGay by the deli counter clerk, who tries to hook him up with a friend of his who's into "sloppy bears", i.e, Bears who are both overweight and not overly concerned with their hygiene.

However, given that Bob replies that he's [[AmbiguouslyBi mostly straight]], that might not be so much of a mistake.

* On ''Series/{{Glee}}'', this trope is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] and discussed by [[spoiler:Kurt and David Karofsky,]] who we find out in season three has taken to hanging out at a local gay bar and been dubbed a bear cub because of his youth and rather burly stature. Kurt, apparently not knowing anything about the term, jokingly asks if he's a cub because he [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "looks like Yogi."]]

* Referenced in ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'' Artie (hairy, rotund, and middle aged) was about to admit that he loved someone (a girl) when he figured out which artifact was causing this week's trouble. He uses the Jewish name, which sounds like a man's name. The (older) man with him responds. [[CrowningMomentofFunny "I didn't know you were homosexual. Are you what they call a Bear?"]]

''Usually'' a subtrope of ManlyGay, and the aesthetic opposite of TheTwink, though cubs are similar in disposition. Frequently overlaps with {{Badass}}, BigBeautifulMan, CoolOldGuy, LeatherMan or PettingZooPeople. In fact this trope overlaps with BigBeautifulMan ''so often'' that some people would consider them the same trope--except that technically this trope is about body hair and the other trope is about body fat.
