More About Big Al
The largest and droopiest bear of the bunch, Big Al appears with his name written on his guitar. Although singing the arguably most depressing song, “Blood on the Saddle”, Al ironically gets the biggest laugh after his signature deep, throaty chuckle at the end of the song. Big Al interrupts Henry’s solo at the end of the show, leading up to the big finale. Big Al’s song choices in the overlays are humorous! In the Christmas Special, Al is seen in a comically enormous baby diaper and party hat singing about being alone for another New Year. In Vacation Hoedown, he is dressed in cave explorer garb, while he sings about getting lost “On My Way To Your Heart”, humorously adding how he lost his swiss army knife “with a bottle opener, a can opener and everything”. Big Al remains as one of the more well-recognized and well remembered bears in the show.

Behind the Bear
