Fuzzy wuzzy was a bear, fuzzy wuzzy had no hair, so fuzzy wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy woz he? No. He was miserable.
Downtrodden, unappreciated, unlucky, unfortunate and pessimistic, Misery Bear is the cuddly comedy character making a career out of remaining mute and mundane. First appearing as part of a viral pilot for BBC3, created by writers Nat Saunders and Chris Hayward (Big Train, Smack The Pony), this British bear has a bad attitude. Quickly becoming a sensation, he even attracted the attention of Kate Moss, who made a guest appearance earlier on in the year alongside M.B. for a one-off comic-relief cameo. But it seems the beige, bear-faced, impoverished little lad has it hard, unable to mutter any kind of cheer and in a last ditch attempt to re-gale any shred of enthusiasm for life, has turned his hand to helping others. Currently working on projects for Amnesty International and Sport Relief, as well as penning his first ever book, Misery Bear’s Guide to Love & Heartbreak, this angry little critter is productively trying to work his way through his issues. Putting down the whisky and wiping his paws of all this negativity, Mr Misery is finally opening up, to tell all. Accompanied by his buddies and body guards, Nat and Chris, our first creature of criticism dropped by i-D HQ to eye up Abbey Lee editorials and spread some bitter beads of wisdom.
