''The Little Flying Bears'' (Croatian: ''Leteći medvjedići'') is an animated television series produced by Zagreb Film and [=CinéGroupe=]. It was a Croatian/Canadian co-production which originally aired in 1990.

This cartoon helps children realize the importance of protecting the environment. The series shows the harmful effects of pollution and fires, as well as the important role of the ecosystem.
!!Tropes include:
* BearyFriendly: the flying bears
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Skulk once had a party with fireworks that went out of control. After the fire was put off, Plato said he hoped Skulk learned his lesson. Skulk said next party would be held closer to the river so it'll be easier to get water.
* CoolOldGuy: Plato
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Skulk's plans.
* GangOfCritters
* GiantSpider: Grizelda, the big black spider who lives in the darker parts of the forest.
* GoKartingWithBowser: In one episode, the bears, Sammy and Skulk celebrate a birthday together.
* GreenAesop: The main M.O. of the show.
** Although it sometimes tends to be taken too far, as a -lot- of human inventions in the show are treated as bad or dangerous, even the useful/harmless ones.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Skulk has a real soft side to him, actually.
* TheHermit: Sidney the snowy owl, who prefers to live in solitude in the icy mountains.
* LaughablyEvil: Many villains in the series count.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Sammy. The most notable example was when he not only didn't agree to help Skulk but also warned the flying bears about Skulk's plan.
* MeaningfulName: Creator/{{Plato}}. Wise old mentor who (along with the rest of the bears, if memory serves) lives in a (not necessarily [[PlatonicCave platonic]]) cave.
* ObliviouslyEvil: Skulk and Sammy aren't so much evil as they are greedy and stupid. Any destruction they cause is unintentional, usually because they didn't think through their latest harebrained scheme.
* SoreLoser: The aptly-titled episode "Sore Losers" featured a yearly competition Skulk and Sammy [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption always lose]]. One year, they took it so bad they bullied the winning team into accepting a rematch.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Skulk and Sammy
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Unlike the other villains, Grizelda is shown to be genuinely threatening to the main cast, including Skulk and Sammy. Plato even warns his little bears that she's a monster who'd devour them all when she'd have the chance to, with her webs also being strong enough to effectively hold up to twenty of them.
** The [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant mountain serpent]] counts, too. Once it finally emerges from the mountain, it starts chasing Skulk and ''very nearly eats Slink'' (only to [[TooSpicyForYogSothoth quickly spit him out when it finds the taste awful]]), and basically threatens to devour all of the forest's inhabitants.
* WickedWeasel: Skulk.
