Andy Panda

Do pandas qualify as bears? If so, where does Po of Kung Fu Panda rank?


I have to admit that I forget Po. Andy Panda was also a Panda Bear but would not have made the list anyway (sorry Andy Panda lovers - all three of you).


Brer Bear (Uncle Remus), Baloo (Jungle Book)


What about the ones that had a huge impact on the toy industry like Care Bears and Teddy Ruxpin? There's also Corduroy.
