Gentle Ben

HUGE FUCK-OFF grizzly “befriends” chipmunk-faced son (CLINT “RON’S BROTHER” HOWARD) of Everglades patrolman for sub-Flipperian “adventures”. Countless repeats down endless decades culminate in wanky Broom Cupboard chorus of “Beeeeeaaannnnn!” from Messrs Anstis and Peters.

    In one episode Ben nearly gets run over by a train but escapes by jumping off a bridge.

    My friend was sure it was a stuntman in a bearskin suit.

    I recall the parpy bit in the title sequence where Ben is introduced very fondly.

    If Leonardo Di Caprio’s experiences are anything to go by, Brutally Violent Ben would be a more accurate title. On the other hand, Hercules the Bear advertised “toilet tissue” as The Big Softy (not The Bog Softy), so which was it?
