Gloomy Bear is a character created by Japanese graphic designer, Mori Chack. Gloomy is an abandoned little bear who is rescued by Pitty (the little boy). At first, he is cute and cuddly, but becomes more wild as he grows up. Since bears do not become attached to people like dogs by nature, Gloomy constantly attacks Pitty even though he is his owner.
The design is an antithesis to the excessively cute products produced by Disney, Sanrio's Hello Kitty, and other companies. Mori Chack believes that humans and animals are incompatible, and an animal is wild by nature. This is expressed most pronouncedly by the Gloomy Bear, which is often shown blood stained and attacking humans. Gloomy Bear is also available in different colors with slightly different designs. There is also a Space Invaders 30th anniversary gloomy bear.
Lady Sandra has collaborated with Mori Chack to create a collection of Blankets, cushions and t-shirts all featuring Gloomy Bear and his owner Pitty.
