An ac­ci­den­tal hot-air-bal­loon ride lands Bear right in the cen­ter of a bustling city far from home. He quickly gains celebrity sta­tus through a se­ries of un­ex­pected stunts and out­ra­geous events, which are bal­anced by smoothly de­liv­ered, en­ter­tain­ing nar­ra­tion. Klimt­style art-nou­veau pat­terns and col­ors daz­zle as Bear leads a cos­tume pa­rade, growls through a tele­vi­sion in­ter­view, hitches a ride to the sta­dium on the back of a mo­tor­cy­cle, and wins over hearts all around.
