The page Beary Funny appears to be confused about which trope it is. The title and page image suggest it's about funny bears; the description suggests it's about bears who eat a lot; and the examples on the page boil down to an arbitrary list of bears in fiction.
I suggest we define this page as "comedic bears", and split off a different page for "friendly bears". We already have a trope for creatures that eat a lot, I don't see how that needs a subpage specific to bears. The page has 57 wicks, 27 inbounds.
Also in agreement with the split, where Beary Funny would refer to funny bears, with another trope formed in relation to friendly bears. I could suggest The Gentle Ben, but it could possibly fall under Trope Namer Syndrome, because although the book had been part of my grade school curriculum, not everybody would know about it.

Bears, unlike lizards, are so commonly made friendly characters that it's really misleading to call a friendly bear an aversion of another trope. Reptiles, on the other hand, are so commonly villainous that making a friendly one is an aversion.
