What a funny old bear market. The insolvency firm BRI Ferrier seems to think the time is finally right to attempt an asset sale of the faded television star Humphrey B Bear.
More than two years since the Adelaide production company Banksia went into liquidation, BRI has called for expressions of interest in the assets tied to Humphrey, the 1980s kids science program The Curiosity Show and several other programs. The main asset up for sale — and previously valued at $500,000 — is the intellectual property behind the big brown bear with a boater hat and other shows devised by Banksia.
The IP includes the trademarks for various Humphrey B Bear
