Guy and Horse on Yellow Rooftop.png

Shadow's camouflage gender is red. There is a portrait of a guy and a horse hanging on a yellow rooftop sitting above it.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Bear dons a grayish sweater and tells us that "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood", an obvious reference to Mister Rogers from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Some music plays that sounds reminiscent of the theme of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood and he suggests that maybe he should get a pair of sneakers.
