The Bear With Brown Fuzzy Hair
The Bear With Brown Fuzzy Hair is the main character in The Lion And Bear Sketch. She is shown to be a protagonist due to the fact she hides from The Scary Lion, (with Big, Scary Teeth) and she runs away from him during the chase scene at the end of the sketch.
She is shown to have a sense of humour as her joke made the Teletubbies laugh. But it is often thought of as very scary by most Teletubby Fans due to the noise and the eyes rolling around and her tongue sticking out.
She is known to be quite taunting and eerie due to the first two lines she says "I'm The Bear, I'm The Bear, And I'm Coming!" In the original sketch she speaks in a very haunting and very sinister voice offscreen and almost scared away the Teletubbies, despite dropping it when onscreen she is shown to have a very scary sound. In the edited sketch she retains a much more silly joker-like personality.
The Bear is known to be funnier than the Scary Lion due to her joke. She speaks in a posh, Queen's English accent found in London or Buckinghamshire (not a Cockney accent!). She loves playing hide and seek and she hides and the lion seeks (seek means find) and then they play chase around Teletubbyland. She is from Regent's Park in London, the capital of both England and the United Kingdom. She is voiced by Penelope Keith.
Who's The Bear With Brown Fuzzy Hair?
The Bear constantly repeats "I'm The Bear, I'm the Bear With Brown Fuzzy Hair" although she has no visible hair. Maybe the producers left out the idea of hair whilst creating the character or maybe they forgot to put hair on the Bear. She appears to have brown fur on herself.

Plus, the bear's voice is the same one as the Narrator's.

She speaks in a rather mischievous voice. Also at the beginning of the sketch, she says 'It's the Bear, it's the Bear and I'm coming' 4 times (While the Teletubbies are looking around before they say 'Uh-Oh', then while they jump around when the Bear usually talks, then after they sit on the hill as usual, and again just after the Teletubbies react before the Bear appears on screen).
