Owl is a male Short-eared Owl, who is Little Bear's friend.
Owl is the wise one. At times he acts like he is better than the rest of the characters, but nonetheless is very knowledgeable and sensible. Owl will only participate in the fun and games if they are logical and rational.
Owl lives in a tree house.
Hen has been shown to have been fond of Owl. Hen asks Owl to walk her down the aisle. In "The Kiss" Mr. Skunk, Duck, and Cat are playing "kissing tag" so Cat kisses Owl on the side of his face making him "it" when Hen walks by Owl he kisses Hen on the side of her face and Hen says, "'I didn't know you cared'", whereupon Owl says, "'I don't! I mean...I do!'" leaving us to wonder if there are feelings between them.
- Owl always writes a poem in his valentines.
- Owl is voiced by Amos Crawley.
