The Very Big Bear is the title antagonist in the children's book Winnie the Pooh and the Very Big Bear, where it's his only appearance. Before a fishing trip, Pooh promises to meet Piglet & Rabbit at a pond, at sunrise. Before that could happen, the Big Bear comes along that night, and gets so tired, that he falls asleep on Pooh's door. The next morning, Piglet & Rabbit wonder where Pooh is. They go get him, only to find the sleeping bear at the front door. They try to make him go away, but to no avail. Inside, Pooh wakes up to find the sunrise missing. He meets Piglet & Rabbit at a window, and they tell him that the Big Bear is at his door. Finally, Pooh feeds the Big Bear some honey, and he leaves, never to come back.
