i think i found something. I HAVE NO IDEA what it means, but maybe we can all figure it out. Ok, so, i think the bears have something to do with RUPERT BEAR. It all started because rbb's official twitter bio catch my attention "The Bear and his pals", so logically i googled it. And the Rupert's Bear came up (i used to watch it when i was a child) so i got a feeling. "Rupert is a bear who lives with his parents in a house in Nutwood" NUT FUCKIN WOOD, NUT FUCKIN TREE...

Alright, let’s do this:

Rupert Bear is a children’s comic strip character created by the English artist Mary Tourtel and first appearing in the Daily Express newspaper on 8 November 1920. Rupert’s initial purpose was to win sales from the rival Daily Mail and Daily Mirror

Rupert is a bear who lives with his parents in a house in Nutwood, a fictional idyllic English village. Rupert’s animal friends are usually referred to as his “chums” or “pals”. (there’s apparently a reoccurring merboy) 

The series often features fantastic and magical adventures in faraway lands. Each story begins in Nutwood, where Rupert usually sets out on a small errand for his mother or to visit a friend, which then develops into an adventure to an exotic place such as King Frost’s Castle, the Kingdom of the Birds, underground, or to the bottom of the sea. Sometimes one of the Professor’s inventions opens the door to one of Rupert’s adventures. At the end of the story Rupert returns to Nutwood, where all is safe and well, and where his parents seem perfectly sanguine about his adventures.
