I have already linked the scientific explanation for why so many people remember it incorrectly. Your brain corrected the spelling. Even a person above said someone asked "isn't it spelled the German way?" which is why our brains deceive us. BerensSTAIN does not make logical sense, so our brain corrects our memory since our memory MUST be wrong.

We'll just have to agree to disagree won't we?
I don't agree with anything you are saying , and you don't agree with my theories.

Which is good and dandy, but please do me a favor and understand once and for all that I have another opinion.

It is not wrong, just different.
No need to keep trying to push yours onto mine.
And if you still don't understand, well then we can do this all night.
I have patience, and luckily being on vacation, all the time in the world.

I feel that if it indeed has always been spelled with stain then kids would have been making stain jokes. I feel like those jokes would be as common as the books themselves. Jokes like the Bear-Stain Bears would be hilarious to kids!

I say we stick to our tin foil hats, and keep on digging.


Further digging will lead you to the only conclusion it can. At least the only one that now can be validated.

Dig objectively, and be willing to accept that conclusion when you are ready.

Above all thank you all for your participation.

That is true, and as someone who considers logic and reasoning of the utmost importance, I have no problem admitting that my memory could be wrong.

In this case though I am going with my gut feeling that it was Berenstein. I mean it is just a book name, who cares? It really does seem stupid, but I remember it far too vividly to chalk it up to memory/pronunciation errors.

Just like in Mike Berenstain's reply regarding his name and the unknown immigration officer that persuaded them to change it to Berenstain, maybe it is possible in a parallel universe that immigration officer didn't exist, or was unable to persuade them.

Scientists from all around the world from the most respectable Universities have been saying for a long time that they believe in parallel universes, and that they are colliding together.

Yeah it is crazy, but it is more crazy to think we really understand how our universe truly works.

Wow, is this a circle jerk? I must admit, it's my first.


I just got home from the local book store.
I went to the children's section and started digging.
My friend told me that the owner knows just about every book and author in his store, and can put his hands on any book immediately.
I asked the owner to spell Berenstein Bears. He spelled it stein.
I told him that apparently it's stain now.
He laughed. Loud.
Then he said, "That's ridiculous. It's with an 'e'...it's always been with an 'e'."
He told me the books are popular, and sell quickly. He also promised to hold the next one for me.

Tomorrow I will go to the other second hand book store in town.
I WILL find one...oh yes, I will.

By the way....I really don't care who criticizes, insults or baits me about this.
Your opinion of me is none of my business.

Carry on.

My pleasure, Doodle!

I live by that sentence now and life is much easier, lol.

I trust myself, my kids...teachers, writers and book store owners when it comes to spelling.

I believe that there are books that say 'stain', and I believe that there are people who remember it always being 'stain'. I'm not here to argue.
I want to know why SO many people remember it as 'stein'.
This is the best conspiracy that I've come across in a long time, and Imma gonna run with it until I can prove that some 'stein' books exist. (or used to exist, hehe)

You gave me an idea.

So I called 4 book stores in my city. And I asked them the same question WITHOUT saying the last name of the bears.

ME: "Do you carry a series of children books about a family of bears?"

THEM: "Oh the Bernstein Bears?"

ME: "Can you spell that for me?"

THEM: "B E R E N S T E I N"

ME: "Thank you very much, bye."


ALL of them answered the same. And they
ALL work in a bookstore.

I suggest everyone try this.

I read that one earlier. One of the funnier if you ask me.


That is what has my head spinning, there are sooo many of us.

It makes for one heck of a party trick. Hey guys watch this, imma blow your mind!

You're going to get at least 2 of 5 scratching their heads.

THANK YOU!!!

I have found lots of teacher pdf's with outlines of reading material for different age groups. They are all spelled 'stein'. These are teachers, for Pete's sake!!!
Book store owners too.

Something is going on that we don't understand. We don't have to hate on each other.
It's a mystery lol...who doesn't love a good mystery?

I also remember the Russians landing a manned mission on the moon back in the 70s. But it never happened.

Oh good grief!!! I've found another one!

There is a tv show I watch called 'Bizarre Foods', and the host is Andrew Zimmerman.
Only now he is Andrew Zimmern.

I am going to bang my forehead into a wall for a few minutes.

With Zimmern and Zimmerman I think it's again a mistake of pronunciation and common spellings.

We hear someone say it and assume how to spell it. Without actually knowing for sure.

I think this is also the case with the bear books. People never paid attention to the spelling and just went with the accepted pronunciation. Then created the memory of it being spelled the way the always have pronounced it.

I also think that the font used by the creators may have something to do with it. At a quick glance the cursive writing can easily be mistaken or exact spelling ignored. Because those studies showed people don't read each letter of a word.

I'm not attacking anyone or saying I'm 100% right. This is all just my opinion and I could be wrong. But it seems like the most logical answer to me.

I'm so sorry Kanga...


My hubby just got home...I asked him the guy's name.
He said, "Andrew Zimmerman" without hesitating.
We watch that show often.

There are now plenty of people on other sites discussing this also.
My partner CANNOT comprehend this 'glitch in the matrix' stuff.
"What the hell are you talking about?" was his actual response.

I shall be sitting in the corner with you, I'm afraid.
And I have a lot of hair.

even all at he old used books from the 80s on ebay have the new spelling,

we have to go back to the island...

But on a real point this is weird.

a reply to: MagicWand67

I don't think it is the same thing. I watch Bizarre Foods all the time and have for years, but I always remember it as Zimmern. Hearing a name vs seeing a name and reading it are very different IMO.

Not saying you are wrong, just that these are different situations. The most logical answer is obviously just mispronunciation and false memories.
