Humphrey the Bear is a is a big, dumb, opportunistic, neurotic brown bear who lives in Brownstone National Park. He is constantly trying different ways to catch food and/or shelter from unsuspecting visitors. Unlike other Disney characters, Humphrey does not speak, but makes inarticulate noises expressing satisfaction, resignation, and anxiety.
When stricken by worry or panic, Humphrey runs desperately in place, with his feet seemingly headed in all directions, especially around the park ranger J. Audubon Woodlore.
Humphrey falls in love with Rae the Lioness and will go through drastic measures just to get close to her.
