Masha is a mischievous little girl and the Bear is her patient and affable companion, a fatherly figure whom she successfully manages to irritate in every 6-minute episode. She originally lives in the forest with her pet animals – pig, goat and dog, when she accidentally comes across the Bear’s house. From then on he can’t get rid of Masha’s overbearing friendliness, and they do eventually become real friends. It’s mischief galore, and the kind Bear always protects Masha, often becoming the target of her pranks.
