We Bare Bears has done beautiful tributes to 90’s culture before and this might be one of its best. In an upcoming episode titled “BearzIIMen” the Baby Bears (along with R&B singer Gallant) will create a new song titled “Play It Smooth.”
Be warned, if you listen to this song even once it’ll be stuck in your head for days. Check this out…
Not only do I need this song on my iPod right now I also have a powerful urge to go back and listen to some 90’s R&B. Hey, Daniel Chong (creator of We Bare Bears), you have any recommendations?
In the episode Nate (voiced by Gallant) and the adorable baby bears form a 90’s R&B inspired group and sing “Play It Smooth” while attracting tons of cheering fans from the neighborhood. Later in the episode, the group enters a talent show in hopes of scoring a record deal and a $500 cash prize. The Baby Bears episodes are always a lot of fun (and super adorable) so we can’t wait for this. Any year that starts off with Baby Bears jams is going to be a good one.
The episode premieres tomorrow Friday, Jan. 5 at 7pm ET/PT on Cartoon Network.
