Berenstein or Berenstain bears??

Found this going around the web today. This is literally blowing my mind. Apparently it's called the Mandela effect, and it's where a large group of people misremember history or something like that. Just fascinating stuff.

There's a whole group of people who think there was a scene cut from Star Wars where Luke throws the grappling hook the first time and it misses.

My kids LOVE(d) the Berenstain Bears. We have 3-4 dozen of them and read them hundreds of times... and I even thought it was Berenstein.

I was just going to say there are parts I remember that aren't there anymore.

As for the Berenstain Bears, I remember it Berenstein, even though this was my favorite book as a kid:

I always called it "Berstein (burn-steen) Bears".

It was originally Berenstein.

Something must have happened to change history or it's a parallel universe kind of thing.

Definitely some hardcore Twilight Zone shit going on here...

I always thought it was Berenstein, and pronounced it that way.

I thought it was Berenstein until one day when I actually, you know, looked at it.

Considering how many people can't remember how to spell "you're" or "they're", it's hardly surprising a bunch of them misremember the spelling of a book they read when they were five.

Here's the original first book:


and here's a newer release:


You may be on to something. Definitely some George Lucas level revisionist history going on. Other than that, always been Berenstain.

I've been wrong all these years. And it's not because they changed their name when they started doing children's books. It was Berenstain all along.

It's Bar-uhn-shteen!

But seriously, I heard both the Berenstain cubs turned into total screw-ups. Apparently there's a video of the sister and Babar that's totally twisted.

Re: Berenstein or Berenstain bears??

Not entirely true. The boy got into acting when George Lucas cast him as an Ewok in Return of the Jedi. From there he had some bit parts until he was cast in his biggest role: Bud Bundy on Married With Children. Rumor has it he will be making a comeback; Uwe Bol wants him for his Batman reboot.

The girl did have some issues. There was the controversial "Bears All" cover shot in Playboy, allegations of drugs (low level ones, like bearijuana) and prostitution, and of course immigration concerns (she claimed her real father was an Asian sun bear and tried to renounce her citizenship). It was really wierd in the 23rd book in the series when they tried to recast her with a young Amy Schumer.
