Bears are a common animal seen around Springfield. They normally live in the woods but have been known to wander into town and cause trouble.
Jebediah Springfield, founder of the town, is said to have killed a bear with his bare hands and the story has become a Springfield legend, which is immortalized as a statue in the center of Town Square. Upon reviewing the evidence historians have determined the bear probably killed him. However this is proved wrong by a secret will found by Lisa, which states he died of syphilis.
Maggie is taken in by a family of bears while the rest of the family have to live on their own out in the woods. They brought her all kinds of toys and kept her warm at night, proving that they are not all mean. In the end they were sad to see her go but as a parting gift she gave one of them one of her pacifiers.

The movie starts with a title screen, with most of the words made out of cacti. The video then cuts to some sort of Old West styled building, which a person comes out of. The character, a cowgirl dressed in a red outfit, has a picture of Lisa for her face.
The picture however, shows Lisa with her tongue sticking out and a somewhat disgusted look on her face. "Lisa" proceeds to introduce herself as "Sheriff Lisa Simpson" (in Homer's voice) and state that her favorite food is "McNuggets"...
