Plot[edit]

The series centers on Goldie Locks and little Jack Bear, who after the incident in the Bear's house end up being best friends. Throughout the series, they venture around Fairy Tale Forest as they meet other characters from various fairy tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, Three Little Pigs, Humpty Dumpty, Jack Horner, among others.

Characters[edit]

Main[edit]

  • Goldie Locks (voiced by Natalie Lander)[5] – A 10 (11 in Season 2)-year-old girl who becomes best friends with Jack Bear after accidentally breaking his favorite chair. She wears a blue dress, a pink bow in her golden hair, white stockings, and pink shoes. Neither of her parents appeared until her father Robin Locks appeared in the season 1 finale "When Goldie Met Bear." In the season 2 premiere "Goldie's High-Flying Adventure", her mother Mrs. Locks is introduced.
  • Jack Bear (voiced by Georgie Kidder)[6] – Mama & Papa Bear's 7 (8 in season 2)-year-old son who met Goldie after she accidentally broke his favorite chair. At first, he and Goldie don't get along but they later forgive each other and go on many adventures together.

Recurring[edit]

  • Mama Bear (voiced by Mary Birdsong)[7] – Jack Bear's mother who is an excellent cook and baker. She is also a world-renowned troll tamer.
  • Papa Bear (voiced by Barry Wiggins) – Jack Bear's father who is an excellent builder. He also likes to go fishing and sometimes takes his son Jack Bear along.
  • Robin Locks (voiced by Michael McKean)[8] – Goldie's father who is the Fairytale Forest barber. He debuted in "When Goldie Met Bear" and has made several appearances in season 2.
  • Marian Locks (voiced by Jane Lynch) – Goldie's mother who travels around the world collecting items her customers are looking to buy. She uses a special wheelchair that can connect to her cart (which she uses to fly around the world) and has many helpful gadgets. She is first mentioned in "When Goldie Met Bear" and officially debuted in the Season 2 premier "Goldie's Great Adventure".

He can often be found helping anyone who needs it and anyone who does find him receives one wish (but only the first time).

  • Aloysius the Big Bad Wolf (voiced by Jim Cummings)[10] – A wolf who is also called Big Bad. Whenever he isn't huffing and puffing and blowing down other people's homes, he steals muffins, cakes, and other goodies from either Little Red Riding Hood or from people's windowsills. Despite his big bad exterior, he has a softer side that comes out from time to time. He likes playing with kittens and is quite the drummer (though he prefers to be a "lone wolf" when it comes to performing).
