Like most of the rest of you, I always remembered it as BerenstEin which is sad because I watch the show all the time with my 6 year old. I still didn't want to believe it, even after reading the comment from the son of the creators in the OP link so I went searching. And I found one that belonged to my wife or her sister when they were kids. So here are a couple of photos and the copy write date for this run/printing is 1985 so it was probably my sister in-law's who was 5 at the time. Photos are Front cover:

Well I found this after much searching...doesn't appear to be photo-shopped to me....?
I'm heading out now, and will be looking for old books. I will report back later with my findings.

AND ONE MORE note (because I can't leave this topic alone, sorry) I frankly always thought is was BERNSTEIN Bears -- now I find it is "BEREN" instead of "BERN" and also "STAIN" instead of "STEIN", so I am just really disillusioned at my spelling ability altogether.

I don't think anybody is disputing that there are Berenstain books out there. I thought we were looking for evidence that there were Berenstein books at some point.
However, star (again) for taking the time to provide the photos, and keeping the thread interesting

That kind of #s with my mind.
Like, what if the people who remember the -stein way are different than those who remember it as -stain
Or this guy is crazy as #.
What do you guys think?
