Bedtime Bear, real name Jeff Oberle, is a professional mascot performer living in St. Louis Missouri.
Bedtime got his start as a mascot through the Missouri River Otters of the former United Hockey League back in 2005 as a backup/community mascot and has not stopped performing since. He has done professional teams in both Missouri and Illinois across sports including baseball, hockey and football.
Bedtime also works with St. Louis Children's Hospital as a volunteer to bring joy and inspiration to kids with terminal illnesses or other injuries. He also suited up for Six Flags St. Louis during the summer of 2006. As of 2007, he has performed at well over 500 professional events and sporting events.
Bedtime has been involved in the furry fandom since 2004, but has only been to 2 conventions due to sports team conflicts. He made his mascot debut as "Tenderheart Bear" of the Care Bears at Anthrocon 2004 performing in the Masquerade that year as well with Rapid T Rabbit doing some guitar to Starship's "We Built This City." Bedtime has also done Care Bear appearances with Rapid T. Rabbit in the Ocean City DooDah Parade.
