Mr. Bear is Stephanie Tanner's teddy bear, who wears a black hat and detective coat, and has a scar under one of his eyes. As she constantly mentions, though only heard twice (season two's "Goodbye Mr. Bear" and season five's "Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Girl Gone?"), Mr. Bear "is not a toy. He's a member of the family."
Stephanie got Mr. Bear when her mother came home from the hospital with baby Michelle. This is revealed in the episode "Goodbye Mr. Bear" where Michelle hides Mr. Bear and Danny decides to show the girls some old home movies. Danny says, "Pam gave D.J. a charm bracelet, and she gave Stephanie Mr. Bear". Mr. Bear himself makes his debut in "Tanner vs. Gibbler" when he is featured as part of Stephanie's "class" as she plays "school" upstairs in her and D.J.'s room.
Mr. Bear suddenly disappears after Stephanie enters her teen years. He was not mentioned until the season seven episode "The Apartment", which also marked his final appearance. However, seeing as Danny wanted the stuffed animals raked up as well as Michelle's "Hobby Day" leaves, it seems that she did not completely get rid of him.
