Singaporean We Bare Bears fans now have something extra to look forward to this National Day, because the Merlion has scored an unexpected cameo in the upcoming episode of the Cartoon Network hit series!
Inspired by We Bare Bears’ show creator, Daniel Chong’s recent trip to Singapore (did you know that the Burbank-based animator’s parents are Singaporean?), look out for our national icon’s appearance in the Asian premiere of “Lil’ Squid” on 9 August.
The episode follows the three baby bears on an adventure as they build a submarine and explore the depths of an aquarium to reunite a lost squid with his family. Watch the sneak peek below – the Merlion appears at the 1:03 mark!
Cartoon Network is available on SingTel TV CH226 and Starhub TV CH316, as well as on the Cartoon Network Watch and Play app. This episode will be screened on August 9 at 4am, 9am, 10am, 12pm, 5pm, 6pm, 9pm, and 10pm.
