Small, young and extremely curious, Masha is the main character of the series. Although she's only three years old, she's incredibly good at doing things unusual for her age. Much to Bear's chagrin, she often gets in trouble because of her sheer curiosity, and he must always repair the damage afterwards.

  • Airplane Arms: In the "First day of school" with authentic sound.
  • And Call Him "George"
  • Big Eater: Played with. She still is a little child with an average stomach, but as soon as she gets hungry, it's almost guaranteed she'll istantly eat whatever Bear is carefully picking or cooking.
  • Deadly Doctor: Although she just wants to have fun, this is what the two wolves think of her since their first traumatic meeting.
  • Kids Are Cruel: Averted. Even though she never gets tired of wreaking havoc, she's never malicious. Anyway, she often acts like a Troll.
  • Friend to All Living Things: If Bear is in trouble, she often gathers the animals of the forest to solve his problems. Somewhat averted with her animals, since she doesn't know they fear her.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Hilariously played straight. Despite her age, she's fast enough to outspeed a wolf and drag Bear upstairs and downstairs with her hand.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Masha and her cousin Dasha look like twins. Played for Laughs when the latter temporary wears the former's Russian traditional dress.
  • Token Human: Technically speaking, she is the only recurring human character in the series.

Also known as "Mishka", Bear is a former circus star and a happily retired dweller of the forest. Although he may look serious and reserved, he acts as a paternal figure to Masha, and he's always prone to save her from any potential danger.

  • The Ace: In addition to his tricks as a former circus performer, the Bear is skilled in cooking, sewing, gardening, chemistry, is a capable artist in own right and is handy with tools. He even won an Academy Award and created his own time portal for crying sake!
  • A Dog Named "Dog": His name is simply Bear.
  • Beary Friendly: He's a nice and gentle bear and the protector of Masha.
  • Beary Funny: Bear's hapless reactions to Masha's antics provide much of the humor in the series.
  • Big Eater: He really loves to eat.
  • Butt-Monkey: And how. Several episodes have Masha relentlessly trying his patience whenever he takes a nap or has fun with his favourite pastimes.
  • Easy Amnesia: One episode has Bear temporary losing his memory and wandering in the forest screaming and acting like a madman. Fortunately, Masha saves the day with an Injury Bookend.
  • No Flow in CGI: Averted. His fur is extremely detailed.
