Does anybody else hate the dancing bears?

Post by jack straw » Wed Sep 15, 2021 9:20 am

When it was bear's choice album only it was still cool but they have become to me the symbol of the disneyification of what was once The Grateful Dead.
When I see them I don't want to even admit I ever even liked the band.
They are now the GD's mouse ears logo
Maybe I have become cynical on the scene since Jerry's passing but I have to believe others feel the same.

I'm confused, is old navy saying the bears are gender neutral? I thought that was a given.

I think they're saying the SHIRT is gender neutral, meaning it won't fit anybody....

I like the Grateful Dead dancing bears. I do not like the D&C cartoon bears.

I would think dancing frogs would be more gender neutral?

Always inspired the question: Dead Head or Sorority Girl?

I prefer the dancing skellys.
