List Rules Vote up the cartoons that primarily feature bears.

Since the beginning of animation, the best cartoons have been filled with animals rather than humans. From Mickey Mouse to The Pink Panther, there's no shortage of colorful and unique animals that have been providing us with entertainment for decades. And one of the most popular cartoon animals are of the ursine persuasion. Whether they're funny, violent, cute, crude, sarcastic, or smart, the animated bears of our favorite childhood - and adulthood - TV shows will always hold a special place in our hearts.

From the sassy Yogi to the persuasively positive Care Bears, cartoon bears were with us during our Saturday mornings in front of the TV and our after-school homework procrastination sessions. So, let's rank the top bear cartoon series that kept us all company from best to worst.
