One of the not-so-cuddly bears, obviously!

Ha ha. It's impossible for me to see this now and not think of the bad teddy bear in the last Disney 'Toys' installment.

Thanks, Alan!

An absolute delight to view these melodramatic, colorful covers, especially when so well photographed!

Thank you, Dave. I like the word melodrama in reference to these covers. I remember the old TV Guide had one word descriptions right after movie titles, before they launched into a slight description of the story. Somehow, my favorite films, like Bride of Frankenstein, were always labeled "melodrama".

Thanks, Fantasyfan. I think the bear is giving the Spock "thoughtful" gaze here.
