This..um..film is a mixed bag. I suppose folks had to pay 5 cents to see it back in 1907, and tastes weren't very sophisticated yet. The actors running around in bear costumes seem pretty awful to me, but perhaps they inspired wonder to children visiting the boardwalk or county fair. Now you don't have to pay 5 cents but have to sit thru a youtube ad. The segment using Steiff bears for stop-motion animation is cool.
The visions of dancing pop-culture via a voyeuristic notch-hole imply condescension and naivety on part of Goldlocks, where dancing bears are simply cute, entertaining and to be cuddled. When finally confronted with a family where 'play' is wild behavior and action can be clumsy, it becomes apparent via anger that bears are still feral. Such threats to dreams of domesticity are quashed with fists of Manifest Destiny.
