Fernando - Light brown teddy bear seen on
the sitcom GOLDEN GIRLS/NBC/1985-92. Fernando was a family heirloom of
Rose Nylund (Betty White), a senior citizen living in Miami with three
other elderly women. On episode #52 "Old Friends" roommate Blanche
Devereaux (Rue McClanahan) mistakenly gave away Rose's treasured teddy
bear to a rummage sale.
When she tried to retrieve it, a little red-haired girl named Daisy (Jenny
Lewis) held the bear for ransom with a water pistol loaded with red ink.
Earlier, Daisy had torn off one of Fernando's ears and returned it to
Rose's house to show she meant business.
Later, when the kid came back to the house demanding cash for Fernando's
release, Rose bluffed Daisy by telling her that maybe it was time for her
and Fernando to part company. Then quick as she could, Rose snatched the
bear from the kid's arms and threw Daisy out of the house.
Reminiscing about Fernando, Rose fondly recalled that whenever she was
scared or down about something, she'd roll over and Fernando was always
there to comfort her.
To keep Fernando in clothes, Rose made the bear its own wardrobe,
including a tiny pair of blue denim bib overalls.
She's just a child. You can't expect
a child to give back a toy. You do understand that, don't you?
