Big Bad Buddy Bird is an episode from the fourth season of Garfield and Friends.
Roy, fed up with getting hit with pies on the farm, gets a job with the Buddy Bears, assuming he'll have a better time with them.
After getting hit with too many pies in the face since it's "National don't mention any kind of meat or someone will hit you with a banana cream pie day", Roy decides to leave the farm and go somewhere where his acting can be appreciated. He asks his agent, Bernie, for a job on another show. He is given a position on "The Buddy Bears Show". After asking the Buddy Bears if they plan to hit him with pies, the bears reassure Roy that they will do no such thing, as it is not considered educational. Roy feels he has made the right choice.
Roy is given the role of "Big Bad Buddy Bird", who acts as an antagonist to the bears' message of group harmony. In each scene, the Buddy Bears decide to do the exact same thing, while Roy says he wants to do something else, resulting in 16-ton safes falling on him. In the last scene, the bears have two safes dropped on him.
Having enough of the bears antics, Roy stops the beginning of another scene. He tells the audience not to listen to the bears and to think for themselves. The bears then go after Roy, resulting in a fight. Roy runs out of the station and back to the farm, where Orson gives him his old job back.
- This is the Buddy Bears' first appearances in a U.S. Acres segment.
