While the “We Bare Bears” story may be over, Cartoon Network has found a new way to tell more of their story. Just in a more toddler friendly way. Yup, Grizz, Panda, and Ice Bear return for all-new adventures in “We Baby Bears.” And it wouldn’t be much of an animated series without a signature theme song. So CN has revealed the official cover at and music video for “The Bha Bha Song (We Baby Bears Theme)” from Up-and-coming Universal Music Korea K-Pop Supergroup, TRI.BE.
TRI.BE’s core values, along with the themes woven throughout We Baby Bears, which follow the adorable siblings as they look for the place they fit in, align perfectly with Cartoon Network’s recent rebrand, Redraw Your World, focused on giving kids the confidence to embrace their individuality and what makes them unique. TRI.BE released their first-ever, highly anticipated mini-album, “Veni Vidi Vici” in October and have been growing their fanbase worldwide ever since.
“Collaborating on the music video for We Baby Bears means so much to us and we feel a strong connection to the inclusive, positive message the show conveys as we represent positivity and self-empowerment too! The video for ‘The Bha Bha Song’ is all about adventure, having fun and spreading joy, just as these baby bears do traveling the world!” – TRI.BE
Here’s the official plot synopsis for the series:
A spin-off of the hit Cartoon Network series, We Bare Bears, We Baby Bears follows Grizz (Connor Andrade), Panda (Amari McCoy), and Ice Bear (Max Mitchell) – as their younger baby selves – traveling in a magical box to fantastic new worlds searching for a place to call home. Along the way, they meet new friends, learn a few lessons and discover that “home” can mean wherever they are, as long as they’re together. We Baby Bears is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and executive produced by Daniel Chong and Manny Hernandez.
Daniel Chong’s webcomic first became an animated series in 2015, and ran for four seasons before ending it all with a terrific made-for-tv film. It has received high praise for its normalizing the modern anxieties that some of us endure every day and its representation of the Asian culture and reflection of the minority experience. So it will be interesting to see what the series can do with younger characters.
The series is set to premiere on Cartoon Network Saturday, Jan. 1 with a 10-episode marathon beginning at 10:00 a.m. ET/PT, which will then replay all day. Two new episodes will follow every Monday night throughout January at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT.
