About Battle Bears
The universe is filled with danger. Radiation spewing pulsars that can fry you extra crispy in a nanosecond… Planet-swallowing space squid that love the rocky crunch of snow-capped mountains… Robotic hunter drones that stop only when their last bolt is melted into plasma… But the most vile and sinister of all are unceasing swarms of cute little pink teddy bears that want nothing more than to smother you into oblivion… with love. They may bleed rainbows, but the “Huggables” put fear into the hearts of even the bravest of the brave.
Helping to protect the galaxy from these dangers are a highly trained squad of teddy bear soldiers known as the Battle Bears. Hardened by combat and trained in a wide range of disciplines, the Battle Bears are the only ones brave enough to stand up to the Huggables! The Battle Bears may be soft and fuzzy on the outside, but these soldiers take cuddly to a whole new level… of awesome!
BATTLE BEARS follows six funny super-powered teddy bears as they travel the galaxy looking for odd jobs. A bear’s gotta work, right? When their spaceship crash-lands on a remote planet (flattening its only city hall), the Battle Bears can’t leave until they’ve repaired the epic damage they caused. If that wasn’t bad enough, they’ll also need to scour the planet to find enough parts to fix their broken ship. The Battle Bears soon learn that this odd but seemingly idyllic planet is also home to some of the galaxy’s most dangerous dangers. Once again, they’ll answer the call to action as these heroes use their skills, heads and heart to save the day.
