I did a google search - Google seems very keen to push "berenstain", so I had to get the search engine to reject that term and use "https://www.google.no/#q=berenstein+bears+-berenstain"

nb.urbandictionary.com...

www.ticketmaster.co.nz...

It really looks like someone is trying to edit world history:

You won't find a single reference to Berenstein at Youtube.

Here's some more links - second hand booksellers state the author and title as variations
on Berenstein and Berenstain (Jan or Stan or The Berensteins)

Mandela's last death will be my first 'solid' memory of his passing, but I fully expect to be shocked and confused when he dies again in a few years


Berenstein is what I remember. My mouth fell open when I started reading the OP until I settled down and remembered that I've had this timeline switching feeling for years.

And I dunno...this is just one of those times when I feel like Occam's Razor actually works WITH "the people" for lack of a better phrase. 1000 people hear hoof beats and for some reason all think zebra and they're all en-mass wrong?

Not sure if you were aware or not, it maybe coincidence but everything we are talking about is actually refered to as the Mandela effect.

Check it out if you have some time to kill.

Look through major memory links , interesting stuff there.


I just found this having mentioned Mandela a few posts up. I started digging and ran across the site you linked to. It is indeed very interesting. I have been looking at it for a bit. There seems to be a definite "don't remember" crowd and a definite "do remember" crowd. I find that odd and wonder if it isn't possible those people that do remember are telling the truth.

I don't know enough about time shifts, slips, etc. but one has to at least accept that there are A LOT of folks that remember things differently than others. What the cause of that is, I haven't a clue. But it's curious and interesting.

Ha some high weirdness but I hate to burst anyone's bubble but I have always recalled a tv advert for the show and recall the announcer pronouncing it BerenstAIn Bears which was always strange to me as a kid because I had thought it was BerenstEin Bears myself. I think it is just mispronunciation.

I've been reading through that and noticed a few of them that I could relate to. I would be curious if others find a few as well.

I remember the Henry VIII painting with the turkey leg, Louie Anderson Dying, 51/52 states so far. Weirder and weirder.

It almost looks like a typo on the books. It has both Berenstain and stein on the same book.

I remember -stein. Funny because I have a memory of being in elementary school and talking about the Berenstein bears to my teacher...and she kept correcting my pronunciation to -stain. It annoyed me so much that she kept correcting me -stain...when it clearly said -stein.

My theory: Did the publishers just misspell the authors' names?..and you know, eventually correct it in later publications?

Very interesting happenings here! Great topic.

LOL that's pretty much where this belongs.

Either way it's still overwhelmingly entertaining.

This is bizarre.

Thanks for the link. I already started in on it!
I think anyone who doesn't view time as always solid and linear might be interested in that site / topic. Interesting - I posted earlier that I thought one of the Mandela deaths was in the "late eighties". The Mandela Effect page states that people have memories of his death in the 80's. Not exactly a precision measurement, but certainly eyebrow raising.

Skunk works makes sense for the topic, which is highly speculative, as that's what skunk works is for (if I recall).

How about The Lost Thunderbird Picture?

ATS Hunts For The Missing Thunderbird Picture


Mark Hall goes in search of an exciting cryptozoological photograph that no-one knows quite whether they've seen or not...

One of the most-discussed and least-seen photographs in recent history must be the alleged frontier snapshot of a dead Thunderbird nailed to a wall with six men standing in front of it to demonstrate its size. People have been talking about it for more than 30 years. A handful of people claim to have held a copy of it, but realised its significance only after their copy had been lost. A fair number of people have recollections of having seen this thing published in a book and many have vague recollections of having seen it somewhere at some time, but cannot remember just where.
source


This is one of those matters in cryptozoology that shall be forever unsolvable at this point. The situation is that once upon a time there was supposed to be a photograph that had been circulated in the late 1950s or early 1960s, which was seen casually by several persons someplace or another. And then at one point in time, cryptozoologist Ivan T. Sanderson found that the only copy he had, in form of a photostat from some unspecified earlier publication, had been lost while out on loan to some researchers. Naturally enough, Sanderson wanted to get another copy of it as a replacement. And then something happened (perhaps baffling but perhaps not): nobody seemed to be able to find another copy of the photo or even identify where it had originally come from. To quote an internet source on the subject:
source

EDIT:

For the record, I remember it being The Berenstein Bears but I think part of the problem is that we all remember it from being children and it was pronounced like "Berenstein" by adults. Couple that with a life of seeing exponentially more surnames suffixed with 'stein' and not 'stain' and it doesn't seem all that odd that many people would remember it incorrectly.

Did a quick editing run through the photo I found...

There is nothing in the file metadata that indicates this file has been edited....but that doesn't mean someone didn't very carefully erase their tracks...

I've zoomed and did everything I can do...I can't tell if it's photoshopped or not...maybe someone else can give it a go...I'm not the best at analyzing these types of things =)

(although I'm not sure if this link will work or not, you can post the image url in if it doesnt and do it urself....)
I ran the picture through fotoforensics and this is the ELA.....unfortunately I can't see anything to show that it is photoshopped....

I have to say, that I recall this picture as well.

I can't say if there is even such a thing as different timelines but I also can't say that people's memories are false (considering the magnitude of folks that remember some things differently).

It's something straight out of Sci-Fi.

Thanks for linking that thread as I hadn't seen it.
