Recap / We Bare Bears S 4 E 21 Adopted

Go To

The Baby Bears get adopted by an eccentric millionaire and get to live in his mansion. Unfortunately, their dream home has a big downside in their room mate, the millionaire's brutish pet gorilla.


  • Astonishingly Appropriate Interruption: When the bears crash the auction.
    Auctioneer: May I introduce you to the king's priceless collection of...
    Grizzly: (popping out of a golden chest with his brothers) Bears!

  • Auction: The episode opens with the Baby Bears crashing an auction and putting themselves up for bid.
  • Catch a Falling Star: Grizz manages to catch Panda as he falls from Carl the gorilla's grip. Carl returns the favor when it looks like Grizz and Panda are going to crash.
  • Cool Pet: Charles' pet gorilla Carl.
  • Eccentric Millionaire: Charles Worthington fits this trope to a T, a Manchild with a bizarre fashion sense (old sneakers with a pinstriped purple suit) who has toys all over his mansion and describes himself as "the fun kind of millionaire".
  • Killer Gorilla: Carl appears as one to the Baby Bears, with his room littered with torn-apart teddy bears (implying that he might do the same to the baby bears). Later subverted when he turns out to be a Gentle Giant instead.
  • "King Kong" Climb: With poor Panda in his front pocket, Carl climbs to the top of Charles' mansion, whose spire just happens to resemble the one in the Empire State Building. Grizz tries to save Panda by flying Charles' model plane, with Ice Bear working the remote.

  • Shout-Out: Beside the reference to King Kong, Carl the gorilla wears a propeller beanie exactly like Tracy the gorilla does in the live-action version of Filmation's Ghostbusters.
  • Stating the Simple Solution: While Grizz tries to come up with a plan for sneaking back into the mansion and save Panda, Ice Bear simply walks through the front gate bars.
  • When He Smiles: Carl smiles after saving the Baby Bears from falling, which Charles points out he hasn't seen him do that for a long time.

How well does it match the trope?
