…courtesy of Hans Traxler’s 1992 book "The Life and Times of Gummy Bears," one of the few German comic books to have been translated into English. I have the German version, but I’ll translate the captions into English.
"Ivan the Terrible went mad when he realized that he could not impress gummy bears with his tried-and-true torture methods."
"Through contact with humans, gummy bears began to develop all the afflictions of civilized life." (overweight, fear of flying, tennis elbow, weltschmerz)
