Samson is a five-year-old brown bear, who is good-natured and kind. Even though he is older than Finchen, he can be more naïve and tentative about some things. Samson is very large and strong, which to him seems entirely normal. Because he is not very conscious of his size, he does not understand when others cannot do many of the things he is able to do. Samson loves the hammock in front of his cave. He is musical and likes to dance—especially the mambo. Samson is from the German Sesame Street, Sesamstrasse. He was built by James Wojtal.
