Dudley, who is a well intentioned but less than intelligent bear, appears frequently as the butt of numerous mishaps and jokes. Dudley was born in the mountainous regions of Northern Kansas to a pair of traveling dancing bears. Dudley spent his early years traveling with his parents appearing as the bearded lady in the circus.
After setting an unprecedented record of three years in continuous hibernation, he awoke to the startling discovery that he had sleep walked to the outskirts of beautiful Gangrene Gulch. As the smell of the municipal landfill engulfed his senses Dudley knew that this amazing place was destined to be his home. This bear of many talents has multiple hobbies which include sleeping for long periods, turning over logs and collecting priceless works of art.
