In The Berenstain Bears Face Up to Bullying, everyone knows Too-Tall Grizzly and his gang are a bunch of bullies. But it turns out that even bullies can be bullied. One gang member, Skuzz, is the group's official victim, and during a trip to Farmer Ben's orchard the gang tries to swipe some apples from his trees. Too-Tall makes Skuzz climb high into the branches to get the juicy fruit. The entire gang makes fun of Skuzz when he loses his grip and hangs down, dangling, yelling for help. The whole scene is witnessed by Mrs. Ben and the cubs. Mrs. Ben swoops in and shares with them the lessons Joseph learned from his brothers and once things settle down, they all enjoy a nice big piece of apple pie.
