Bear In The Big Blue House is a Disney childrens' television series centered around the show's protagonist Bear who lives in a house with several of his puppet friends. In early October 2016, image macros of the character were frequently posted on the /r/me_irl subreddit to compete with the annual skeleton war event, leading some viewers to accuse the bear posts of being a forced meme.


On October 4th, 2016, Redditor bradfordGT submitted a picture of Bear from Bear In The Big Blue House, along with the caption "Trying to sneak in the new meme of the month like" (shown below). Within 72 hours, the post received upwards of 1,500 votes (93% upvoted) on the /r/me_irl subreddit.[1]
