''Paw Paws'' (refered to as such on screen despite what the theme song calls them) is a Creator/HannaBarbera cartoon from TheEighties, shown as part of ''The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera'', a syndicated Sunday morning block[[note]]Although some stations showed it on Saturdays.[[/note]] with ''WesternAnimation/YogisTreasureHunt'' and ''WesternAnimation/GaltarAndTheGoldenLance''. Basically ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' + Pacific Northwest Indians as anthropomorphic bears, with their totem doubling as a sort of CombiningMecha.
!!''Paw Paw Bears'' contains examples of:
%%* {{Adorkable}}: Trembly Paw
%%* BigBad: Dark Paw
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Princess Paw Paw is a blonde; Brave Paw, Trembly Paw, and Laughing Paw are brunettes, and Mighty Paw is a redhead.
%%* BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins
%%* DeadpanSnarker: Trembly Paw. So very much.
* FurryFemaleMane: Princess Paw Paw has one down to her hips. So does Dark Paw's Aunt Pruney.
%%* GangOfCritters
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: The tribe is governed by Princess Paw Paw, who uses her pendant to awaken the totem.
* {{Lilliputians}}: The eponymous bears are extremely small, roughly comparable to Smurfs in size.
%%* LovableCoward: Trembly Paw
* MrFanservice: Trembly Paw. WalkingShirtlessScene? Check. {{Adorkable}}? Check. TheWoobie? Check. Lets face it, if the show were more popular he'd be a fangirl magnet.
* MundaneUtility: Averted when the Paw Paws try to call Totem Bear to take a thorn out of a giant's foot and the totem animals, apparently deciding this falls under the heading of "taking the piss'', promptly cease responding to summons for most of the episode, until the Paw Paws learn AnAesop and become more able to handle things by themselves.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Totem Turtle. As the bottom of the totem animals, it's always the last one to respond to any trouble; and because of its place in the LandSeaSky trio, it's prone to falling into ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman. That said, it's the only one of the totems with any skill in the water and is still a giant turtle effigy charged with protecting the Paw Paws.
* PrincessesPreferPink: Princess Paw Paw wears a pink outfit trimmed [[PrettyInMink with white fur]].
%%* StupidEvil: Dark Paw, so very much.
%%* TerribleTrio: Dark Paw and his two henchbears.
%%* ThemeTuneRap
%%* BlackBeadEyes: Papooch
%%* GirlishPigtails: Laughing Paw
%%* HairDecorations: Everybody
* SquashedFlat: in the episode "S'no Business," Dark Paw and the Meanos become this when the Totem Bear falls on them.
