Mitzi is one of Little Bear's friends. Mitzi is a mischievous monkey who at times is up to no good. She lives in a tree house in the forest near Little Bear's home. She sometimes tricks and cheats her way into winning some of the games she participates in with Little Bear and friends. However, Mitzi always feels guilty after hurting someone's feelings or misleading them, which allows young viewers to relate and sympathize with her at times.
