This is one of my favourite creepypastas EVER. Why? It hooked you up with something that could actually really have happened, no ghosts or supernatural things. The writing was also great, so I can wholeheartedly say - This deserves a 11/10. TheLD3H (talk) 19:23, August 2, 2013 (UTC)
Very nice pasta, I look forward to more great ones in the future! Time's running out. 21:58, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
That picture of the costume looks like pedobear. lol. Peace for ourselves requires peace for all peoples 22:36, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
Seems legit. Very good, had me a little tweaked out near the end. I was confused about the "senior" kindergarten thing, but then it said "Ontario." --King Starscream 15:20, September 20, 2011 (UTC)
Just a random thought...
...Could you possibly have meant "Ooby" (Oobie?) instead of "Booby"? Ooby was a show that used to air on Nick Jr./Noggin a few years ago. The characters were actual human hands.

Wow someone actually noticed! XD
Yeah I based "Booby" off Oobie, But since I only saw one episode of Oobie (Hot dog and ketchup!) I based the episode described in my pasta off of it. Booby is very similar to Oobie, just without the eyes.
booby's like me
booby's like you
booby's got a lot of big things that he's gonna do~
this actually made me go watch an episode of Oobie so thank you for that.
I've been wondering, what did that Mr. Bear fellow do to the children? Please tell me, as I want to swear at this as I read and/or wear fancy clothing at the same time, thinking of how un-fancy the shows were.

Obviously the hand in "Playing with scissors"...was a kid's hand. SilentObserver01 16:11, November 21, 2011 (UTC)
This was a really nice pasta and seemed more realistic then any other pasta, great job. 10/10Renbacko 01:12, January 6, 2012 (UTC)
You see this story may or may not be true but it could happen. There are many slots for air time, if you have money you can have a public access TV channel. Some public accsess channels share air time like EWTN (Religouse channel based out of Michigan) That shows Catholic based programming but during off air hours have independant shows or just blue screen. Cable networks have emty channels available for rent space. So the scenario of a pedo renting a channel on basic TV is not far fetch at all. However public access TV is widley reveiwed and can be teminated at anytime. (These are the rules for the United States not for Canada where this story took place) So if this happened in the US the pedo would be tracked and arrested emedatly. Yes this story could happen but it is unlikely. Tiff1234 04:29, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
This was a great pasta. Most realsitic one I ever read. It's like a mini Happy Appy. 9.5/10 JimmyTheKeybladeWielder 22:01, February 14, 2012 (UTC)

When are you going to up date again! D:
Please people just stop Danny Brown 06:41, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
You people need to stop asking if it is legit. This site is meant for fictitious stories.
This is one of the more seemingly realistic pastas I've read. I was so into the story that I almost found myself believing there would be future updates. --3lli
hey man. are you going to publish another update or what? i love this pasta and i wanna see you at the dam.
Danny Brown 06:45, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
This is really good, the stories on here nowadays are silly and they don't put actual fear into the reader. But this really freaked me out. It is refreshing to see a story that is well written and actually scary and intense.
Would really like to see more.
I think that this is a pretty damn good pasta. So realistic. I loved every single second of it until I got to the end. I'm dying to read more about this. LeahRawrzzz (talk) 19:38, September 30, 2012 (UTC)
I just realized, Elliot is not a child anymore. He will easily beable to face off Mister Bear. yea, just like gerasim did with forenzik
Hey, luv. Adore the story, quick question!
Assuming you get back to this within reasonable time, curiousity was itching at me. Your story so far was totally captivating to me, so I did a little research into the history of a number of things; Caledon has the lowest crime-rate of any town in the country. Did you know this when you chose to set it in Caledon? If not, why Caledon? Sorry, had to ask, it really does just add to the over-all, delicious creep-factor.
The ending kind of killed it. ...Kinda... But apart from that, it gave me the same feeling I got when I read Normal Porn for Normal People, and was rather refreshingly creepy.Zinthos234 (talk) 03:25, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
I really liked this one. It and Happy Appy are now tied for my favorite pastas. Please update it soon, I want to see how it'll play out!
Ive.emailed Mr. Bear and got a reply.
Me: Listen, Elliot has beem talking about you, you sick fuck,Stay awqy from kids,
Him: Dear Kosto,
My dear, dear boy.You are sorely mistaken. Not to worry, it's quite common in young boys your age. I would never even DREAM on harming a child. In fact, i think i would like you to join me in my cellar! We play all sorts of fun games, tell stories, and try some of my special drinks!1000 fuzzy hugs,Mr Bear.
I've sent a reply, ill update soon
Nice! 8/10. He looks like real-life pedo bear...And he is a pedofile! Sex and death. Two things that come only once in a life. But at least after death your're not nauseous (talk) 6:06, June 6, 2013 (UTC)
I thought the pasta was fairly well-written, but I have two big problems with it.
The pacing and the fact that it very closely resembles other pastas of the genre, namely Happy Appy and Candle Cove.
Both are pastas about low-budget TV shows that end up being more sinister than one would originally imagine.
Both are pastas that involve a local TV programming station airing said odd shows.
Both involve little kids actually getting hurt as part of the show, or implied as such off-camera.
The only big plot device differences I see are about HOW said shows are bad or creepy- the "bad guy" is defined clearly, and is part of a cult. However, the cult part is slightly less original, as the demonic implications of such are also shown in Happy Appy, near the end of the series, when Appy dies.
The pasta's pacing also made me unimpressed, namely because, in several parts, the main character is not scared at all, rather interested and intrigued. Part of what makes a creepypasta so creepy is the shared feeling of fright with the main character. It also helps the audience connect to said character, and, to be honest, I found it hard to connect with ANY character in this pasta, considering that the main one is the only supposed dynamic character, and he, so far, is very one-dimensional, seemingly composed out of the desire to go on a quest for truth, and seemingly without fear.
Every single time something scary appears to happen, it is interrupted by the main character saying, "oh, that's ok," or "oh, I need to find out more, so I will completely disregard this information's emotional effects" or "but it was all ok because such and such scary thing was really not scary at all, because it was just a such and such." This completely ruined the creepy vibe it would have had for me.
The biggest example I can think of would be when the pasta talked about that creepy E-Mail, but the main character casually dismissed it and said "It's obviously a crank E-Mail," and then the PASTA LEFT IT THAT WAY. That part irritate me to no end, because it just left an awkward loose end that never got tied up, and never can correctly be tied up because the moment to scare has already passed.
Instances of this, although much more minor, can be found in several different areas in the pasta.
I mean, literally EVERY creepy scene was just destroyed by the character's ridiculously level head and logic. I could not find one scene that actually creeped me out fully.
Now, don't get me wrong, the idea is ok, just maybe some edits would make it worthwhile to read...
But the pacing felt clunky to me, the character was unlikeable and, honestly, felt robotic and unemotional, and the pasta, overall, did things that have already been done, blog entry posts (candle cove), old creepy tv shows (candle cove, happy appy), children getting hurt at local TV stations (the place where bad kids go, candle cove, happy appy) and all.
Overall, I think this pasta deserves a 2/5, in its current form.
The story was interesting...but way too long. You could trim this just by deleting unneccessary words. I suspect that might have to do with the format this was written in. And there were a few errors in this story. And changing Oobie to Booby was...wow. Really? I, Da Cashman (talk) 05:49, June 25, 2013 (UTC)
Also, what in the blue Hell are you doing giving the dumbest characters the Slipknot and Metallica shirts? Go look up "Iowa" and "The Call of Ktulu" right now, or else, Mr. Bear is gonna be the last of your worries when Da Ca$hman and all his Ca$hmanmanic$ run wild on YOU!

Awesome. I wish there were more recent updates.
