It was one year ago, in December of 2019, the Forgotten Bears in the Lair introduced themselves to kids all over the world. It has been an amazing adventure for me, creating this magical world and bringing the Forgotten Bears to life in the imaginations of children. I look back at the very first episode, the Christmas Special: "Letters to Santa," and compare it to the newest, "No One Like You," and can't help but envision where the Forgotten Bears will go in the year to come. This passion project, fueled by my love of storytelling and fantasy, has come so far in its first year, and I have so much more planned for the future. My goal was then and will always be creating a family-friendly animated series your kids will love, filled with characters that ignite their imaginations and spirits of adventure.
I have to thank my friends, who have volunteered their time to give the Forgotten Bears their voices, and in turn their hearts and souls. I am so grateful for your kindness and I appreciate every single one of you! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for supporting me and this ambitious project. With every episode we grow, and with help from you and hopefully others in the months to come there's no limit to where the Forgotten Bears can go.
And thank you for watching and sharing the Lair of Forgotten Bears with all the kids in your life. My promise to you and them is: I will always create a world and characters promoting kindness, honesty, love and friendship.

Meet the voices of Ring Toss and Chatter, the best bear friends in the Lair of Forgotten Bears.
Ring Toss comes to life from the heart and soul of Richie Ammons. Richie is new to the world of voice acting, but his talents are taking him places and I couldn't be happier he has joined the Forgotten Bear family. Ring Toss wouldn't be the kind and loving bear he is without Richie. You can hear more of Richie's voice acting work at his site: https://voice123.com/richieammonsvo
Chatter is the lovable little troublemaker in the Lair of Forgotten Bears, which is exactly why I asked my friend and actress Jennifer Lynn Warren to give Chatter his always cheerful voice. Your parents might have seen Jennifer in the scary tv show "American Horror Story," where she played a very frightening character — One you might want to wait to watch until you're a little bit older — But as Chatter, Jennifer shows just how sweet and charming she can be.
The Keepsafe Bears live in our world; in a house you can find in any suburb, in any town, and in any state. When it came to designing the house I decided to model it after a very special house I grew up in, located in the suburbs of San Francisco. It was in this house where I discovered my love of art, and it was also where me and my Teddy bear, Barry had many adventures together. That's me on my brand new bike outside the house, and my best friend Petey sitting on the curb, who was more like the older brother I never had. There are a few updates and renovations I made to the house as you can see, but the heart of the home is still there. I can't wait for you to step inside this house and meet the Keepsafe Bears. It's going to be an epic and exciting adventure, which connects our world with the fantastic world of the Forgotten Bears.
Meet Wesley Eure, the voice of Theodore in the very first episode of Lair of Forgotten Bears — the Christmas special, Letters to Santa. When I was a kid one of my favorite tv shows was Land of the Lost. In my eyes Wesley was the hero of the show (side note: Kathy Coleman who played Will's sister Holly was one of my first crushes). The show had action, adventure, and most importantly dinosaurs! During my time as a television actor I attended a number of conventions and it was at these events I become friends with Wesley and the LOTL cast — dream do come true. So when I was casting voice talent for the Christmas special I called up Wesley to ask for his help. He said yes without a moment of hesitation. Wesley has worked on a number of children's programs, including Dragon Tales, which he wrote and created. I can't thank him enough for being a part of the series. He continues to be a hero to this big, dinosaur-loving kid.
Episode number three introduced you to Ring Toss's new bike and Puppet the Pirate Panda's pirate ship air ballon. In the next episode, A Bear at Heart, the Valentines Bears take their brand new Hover Rower for a ride, following a trail of broken hearts from Forgotten Lake up to the Welcome Tree. This is one more new and exciting addition to the fantastic world of the Forgotten Bears. Where will the Hover Rower take them next?
Meet Jason Marnocha, the talent actor who gives Puppet the Pirate Panda a voice. You’ve heard Jason as MEGATRON in Transformers: Power of the Primes, BATMAN in Young Justice Abridged, OMEN in Valorant, and as many more incredible characters in popular animated series and video games. Jason is a pirate at heart and an amazing friend. Puppet and I can't thank him enough for lending his talent to Lair of Forgotten Bears adventures!
Kobold isn't the only troll in the Lair of Forgotten Bears world, but like all trolls he prefers to spread his nastiness and yuck alone under his pile of black rocks. In episode 4 Kobold receives a message from a troll named MUSS. He's a computer troll living under the bridge in the Fall Forest. Muss teams up with Kobold to help him with his plans to ruin the good times and fun of the Forgotten Bears. Will they be able to do it? The second troll, coming in episode 5 is BOBBLE. When we meet him, Bobble is wrestling with Cody, the leader of the Keepsafe Bears. These two new trolls are just a couple of new characters entering the lair in the next episode. How much trouble will they cause, and how will the Forgotten Bears stop them?
Kobold the troll has finally admitted he needs help if he wants to get into the lair and take away the Forgotten Bear's happiness and joy. Meet Norttron, Bone Breath and Bory Tori, also known as the FOE. They are a clumsy trio of bad guy action figures who bumble and stumble through the Fall Forest and the cave around the lair. In episode 4 the FOE take part in Kobold's latest plan to spoil the Forgotten Bear's fun, but will they be able to pull it off?
A new group of brand new hero bears will be joining the Forgotten Bears in episode 5 of Lair of Forgotten Bears, entitled "Be Bear Brave!" Please welcome the Keepsafe Bears, a group of brave bears whom live in our world, far from the lair, and protect their kids from nasty trolls looking to spread nastiness and yuck.
The Keepsafe bears (from left to right) Bean, Bits, Cody, Buttercup, EB, The Dode, and Chewy.
