Baby Bear-a funny "W" language-talking and cutesy cub muppet is the muppet that first appeared on Sesame Street in the 1991-92 season. He was a minor character, because he was in the story, "Goldilocks & the Three Bears", but he and the other bears were annoyed by the Goldilocks Anything Muppet. In Season 25, he became best friends with Telly. In the 'Elmo's World' days from late 1998-01, they made episodes with Baby Bear, Telly and Elmo, and even Rosita and Zoe, because they became more and more popular and everyone believed in them. When Sesame Street never looked the same, Baby Bear became more and more popular that he appeared on his own 'Hero Guy' skits with the crudely-drawn friend like himself named Hero Guy and had Cousin Bear in 2002 and he and Mama Bear and Papa Bear had their new baby, Sister Bear in 2003. I think SS wants to show everyone more and more of Baby Bear, Telly, Zoe, Rosita and even Elmo and they forget the other muppets like Reporter Kermit, Little Bird, Herbert Birdsfoot, Sherlock Hemlock, etc. Why did Baby Bear became more and more popular now?
