Many of us alive today either read the Berenstein Bears to our children, or we were the children who had our parents and caretakers read the Berenstein Bears to us. When I was a child, everyone I knew called these books the Berenstein Bears. However, when I look at the titles of these books now, it is spelled Berenstain. That's not even remotely pronounced the same. And even the animated series says Berenstain. I could've sworn that when I was younger, the TV adverts pronounced it Berenstein. So what the hell is this? One would say this is the Mandela Effect. You see, it seems to some people like me, that we may have shifted into a parallel universe where we now refer to the books as Berenstain Bears. Some people I've talked to on and offline say that it's always been Berenstain Bears, but for me and many others, it is Berenstein. Full article about the transfer of paralel universe and the Mandela Effect: http://heavy.com/news/2016/08/berenstein-bears-proof-reddit-prove-mandela-effect-vhs-photo-berenstain-evidence-pictures/ The Mandela Effect refers to a group of people who are absolutely positive that Nelson Mandela died in prison (which didn’t happen.) Their theory is that other people share this same false memory because there was an alternate history or parallel universe where that really happened, and our two universes somehow merged. Others have posited that perhaps someone traveled back in time and altered things slightly enough to change Mandela and Berenstain, causing a ripple effect that only a small percentage remember. I believe I, and many others, have transferred between universes where Nelson Mandela died in prison, and grew up reading the Berenstein Bears. Into a universe where Nelson Mandela life a long and fulfilling life with the Berenstain Bears.
