The Buddy Bears (Namely Billy, Bobby, and Bertie) are a trio of singing bears and occasional antagonists in Garfield and Friends. In "Roy Gets Sacked", they are shown to have a sister named Betty.

Physical Appearances

Billy is short, Bobby is tall, Bertie is fat.


They are known on television for their educational and harmonizing content. They also shun freethinking, once stating that "if you disagree, then you're just a troublemaker". Garfield often tells them that their "message" is wrong, although they never listen to him. Their television show once replaced Binky the Clown's, and Roy Rooster sometimes gets stuck as the fall guy for their routines (in this case, the person who thinks for himself). The only time they fought with each other is when Garfield tricked them into arguing about pizza toppings.

  • The Buddy Bears are a spoof of cartoon shows such The Get Along Gang and The Care Bears which focused on caring emotions, harmony, groupthink morality, and lack of conflict.
    • Ironically, the U.S. Acres segments from earlier seasons focused on similar values.
  • In later episodes, it is shown that they take their promises literally (e.g. dropping two 16-ton safes on Roy after promising not to drop a 16-ton safe on him).
  • While the group had numerous speaking voices, their singing voices were provided solely by Thom Huge.
