THE SUGAR BEARS - Wake Up & Dance!

The Sugar Bears were a prefab cartoon bubblegum band that appealed to the kids and infiltrated their hearts, minds and even mouths via this cereal box record that you could cut out of the back of the pack when you finished eating and slap on the stereo. Chew and groove! Interestingly, most of the tunes from their album "Presenting the Sugar Bears" (Big Tree BTS-2009 1972) were penned by a young Kim Karnes who later had a huge hit with "Bette Davis Eyes".
