Grumpy Bear shows that while it's okay to be grumpy sometimes, it is also silly to let grumpiness go too far. He has also been the inventor/mechanic for the rest of the Care Bears. Anytime any other Care Bear calls him in the middle of his work, he accidentally bumps his head. He is cynical, surly, and rarely happy, hence his name, but he does value his friends and smiles on special occasions.
