C-Bear was an ordinary teddy bear in the eyes of most, but to young Jamal Wingo, he was a best friend and confidante. The shades-wearing bear (voiced by rapper Tone Loc, who performed the show's theme song) could walk and talk, but only came to life around Jamal.

But C-Bear and Jamal was more than a rap-influenced Calvin and Hobbes. The two title stars teamed up to help South Central L.A. kids with a variety of social problems—peer pressure, divorce, drug abuse, etc. In each episode, C-Bear borrowed a page from It’s a Wonderful Life, showing Jamal what would happen if the wrong choice were made.

Despite the show's overwhelming popularity with both educators and kids, only 13 original episodes were produced, aired over two seasons.
