Pick of the Week: Molly and the Bear

Molly and the Bear by Bob Scott (Update 2017: the comic is now called “Bear with Me”) is a very fun and original family friendly comic that takes us into the life of 11 year old Molly and her unusual pet a 900 lb pet bear.  Yep, you heard right, a 900 lb bear.  After realizing that life in the great outdoors is just one terrorizing event after another Bear decides life has to be better in the suburbs and that’s where Molly meets him one day and brings him home.

Life at home has just been turned upside down for Dean, Molly’s dad, but Molly is ecstatic with the new pet that she now has.   The story follows the many escapades that Bear and the family find themselves in with a new 900 lb house guest to feed and accommodate.

Bob Scott, creator of Molly and the Bear, is a veteran of 20 years in animation. Bob’s drawing and illustration work have appeared in various books such as “Your Friend the Rat”, “The Art of WALL-E”, and “Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown”. His animation has been seen in numerous feature films such as “Toy Story 3”, “Ratatouille”, “WALL-E”, “The Incredibles”, “The Prince of Egypt” and many others. He has worked for Pixar since 1999 and is a graduate of the California Institute of the Arts film and animation program.

Bob brings his unique style to this online comic creating a fun lovable family and a story that just leaves you smiling as you read each new strip. Bob makes Bear a member of the family and creates an ongoing dialog between Bear and the family members that really shows the dynamic between Bear and Molly and the ongoing conflict that Molly’s Dad has with having Bear around. Even when Dean is upset with Bear you always get a glimpse of how much he cares for him and how he knows how important Bear is to Molly.

Part of the main fun about Molly and the Bear is seeing Bear’s take on the world around us. He brings a certain innocence to the day to day that sheds a comical light on what we consider normal and just accept. Life with a 900 lb Bear can’t be an easy task but Molly has embraced it wonderfully.

If you are like me and enjoy a great Family Friendly all ages comic that you can share with your friends and family, and one that makes you laugh and feel good each time you read it then look no further than Molly and the Bear.
