In his main show appearance, Hungry Bear appears when Domo wanders into the woods while looking for his baseball. Domo encounters Hungry Bear and tries to be friendly. Hungry Bear initially doesn't do much due to his hunger pangs, but soon abducts Domo and tries to cook him in a pot. However, Domo escapes, prompting Hungry Bear to try capturing Domo for a meal. After much effort, Domo manages to exhaust Hungry Bear and becomes hungry himself. Hungry Bear flees when Domo tries to eat him, the episode ending on a shot of Domo biting Hungry Bear's butt.
From what can be seen in the episode, Hungry Bear is a loner who has a distinctive scar under his left eye and another on the side of his stomach. He is naturally a feared presence. The fox and bear child run in terror at the sight of him while, ironically, Hungry Bear was running in terror from the hungry Domo.
