Most of the censorship of We Bare Bears is applied by Turner EMEA (Europe, Middle East, & Africa). Censorship of the show has been seen in Europe, Russia, Africa, Middle East, and Latin America. This censorship mainly occurs due to the differences in television guidelines and culture between the United States and foreign countries.

Notably, a lot of the censorship of this show has been regarding Ice Bear and his fridge as many countries have issues with showing characters inside of refrigerators.

Pilot

When the Pilot was originally released at the KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival, a couple of scenes had to be censored to follow S&P (Standards and Practices).[1]

One of the few photos cut from the Pilot.

  • During the montage sequence where various photos of the bears wrecking the party are shown, the following two were cut:
    • A photo of Ice Bear holding a dead deer while several children cower in terror and
    • A photo of Grizzly messing with a child in a porta-potty.

During the Pilot's international broadcast, many scenes were cut. This censorship includes...

Pilot (Arabic) - We Bare Bears

One of the censored broadcasts of the Pilot.

  • In Europe, the scene where Grizzly rides in on a chair and opens the fridge to reveal Ice Bear was removed.
  • Immediately following that, the scene where Panda is wallowing in grief and singing an off-key song was also cut. It immediately cuts to Grizzly banging on the closet door.
  • Most of the conversation between Grizzly and Panda through the closet was cut.
    • The scene involving Panda's conversation between Susan and him was completely removed as a result. His phone actually doesn't make a single appearance at all in the censored Pilot.
  • Following Grizzly's harmonica imitation, the scene from then to when he throws away Panda's phone was completely cut.
  • During the montage, a moment when Ice Bear is covered with fruit punch was removed, likely because it made him look bloody.
  • When the ice cream cake is launched into the air, the portion of the song that was recycled from the beginning was removed, leaving Panda singing the words "ice cream cake".
  • Near the end, the entire scene where Panda's phone is present was removed entirely.

Brother Up

  • After Panda scares off the wolves, Charlie coming out of the bushes before running towards Panda was cut, causing it to look as if he came out of nowhere.
