Get to know each of the characters and the characteristics that make them so special:
Masha is a mischievous 3-year-old girl who lives in an old train station in the forest. Clumsy yet friendly with everyone, she is always getting into trouble.
Masha always walks alone through the forest to play with the animals, especially her best friend Bear. She wears a pink traditional Russian outfit with a pink headscarf. In addition to being mischievous, Masha always demonstrates her cunning ways and intelligence, being even stronger and faster than Bear.
Bear is Masha’s best friend, and is kind-hearted in a fatherly way. He’s serious and calm, but having worked in a circus, he knows how to do magic tricks and acrobatics.
He seeks peace and quiet, yet is always being tormented by little Masha. Bear gets annoyed with his friend’s antics, but despite everything, they are inseparable companions and he misses Masha when she’s not around.
The Siberian Tiger is an old friend of Bear’s, and he still works in the circus. He has a personality similar to his friend’s, but he can do more tricks and takes more of Masha’s antics.
Rabbit is a friend of Masha’s who is also always involved in her mischievous activities. Sometimes he is an antagonist to Bear because he tends to steal carrots from his garden, and he also likes to make fun of other animals.
Masha’s dog is always doing its guard duty, and that’s why it doesn’t always appear in the episodes.
Penguin is like a foster brother to Masha and seems to like her more than his adoptive father Bear. Cheerful and cute, he calls the Bear “daddy” in the episodes in which he appears.
Panda is Bear’s Chinese nephew and appears to be the same age as Masha. He often visits his uncle from time to time, which makes Masha a little jealous, although the two are friends.
Goat lives in the backyard of Masha’s house with Dog and Rosie. He’s generally unconcerned about what’s going on around him, as long as he has something to chew on.
Rosie is Masha’s favorite pet, and she always treats her like a baby. Rosie loves the girl but is always running away from her excessive display of love and affection. All that Rosie needs to be happy is good music, dancing, and sunny days!
10. Female Bear
Female Bear loves nature and loves to read poetry. Plus, she has a crush on Bear! She lives in the forest near the river and loves to eat raspberries and cream.
11. Black Bear
The Black Bear is Bear’s biggest rival in the forest. He’s smug just because he’s taller, stronger, and more muscular than Bear. He is vain and likes to work out, always concerned about his body.
12. Silly Wolf
He is one of the two wolves who are friends with Masha and Bear. The pair live in a rusty ambulance in the middle of the forest and are the “doctors” of the area, when small injuries occur. Silly Wolf is messy and lazy, and always obeys Crafty Wolf’s orders. He is also always hungry and likes to eat anything that fits in his mouth!
13. Crafty Wolf
Crafty Wolf is bossy and always howling orders. He is constantly hungry and trying to hunt the animals in the forest, but he always messes up.
In the cartoon, squirrels always appear in the woods, and this one ends up becoming Masha’s friend. He lives high up in a tree and seems to be a little stressed out, wanting to store all the nuts in the forest.
It’s another animal from Masha and the Bear’s friendly forest. He lives inside a tree trunk, loves eating apples, and is not very lucky: he is always in the wrong place at the wrong time.
