I admit I too am caught off guard by the spelling on the bears, but I actually do have a vague memory of library day in elementary school and the teacher correcting someone's pronunciation on that from something that seemed right to something that sounded wrong but obviously was right when we sounded out the cover again. Its just one of those names that causes problems.

They may have had to change the name. There is a book "Jupiter Rising", that is completely different than the movie.
By the way, I do remember it being advertised as "Jupiter Rising"

LOL. For me it was Berenstein Bears. I am certain of that.
We're seeing a convergence of realities here.
Fist of Fury was accidentally released in the U.S. under the title The Chinese Connection. That title was a means of tapping the popularity of another film, The French Connection (starring Gene Hackman), released earlier in the U.S. for another Bruce Lee film, The Big Boss, which also involved drug smuggling. However, the U.S. titles for Fist of Fury and The Big Boss were accidentally switched, resulting in the former being released in the U.S. under the title The Chinese Connection until 2005, while the latter was released as Fists of Fury.
Recent television screenings and the current official DVD release (by 20th Century Fox, originally available in The Bruce Lee Ultimate Collection box set) in the U.S. have restored the original titles of all the films starring Bruce Lee. Fist of Fury is now officially known as Fist of Fury in the U.S.. The current DVD version also has a subtitle that says "A.K.A. The Chinese Connection" when the Fist of Fury title appears on screen, as the source material is the Fortune Star digital remasters.
