Giant Teddy bears have appeared on several hit shows, and the latest small screen triumph is our own pink and adorable Lulu Shags, who appeared on the May 5, 2014 episode of "Mike & Molly" with Melissa McCarthy.

The episode, titled "Sex, Lies and Helicopters" had McCarthy's character Molly finding out her sister had a one night stand with her husband's police partner, Carl. Carl is notorious for becoming overly attached to women, while Molly's sister Victoria is notorious for not being attached to guys.

Lulu Shags plays the big pink teddy bear that Carl sends Victoria, proving he his indeed becoming attached in what was supposed to just be a casual one night stand. For the show, Lulu pretended that a song played when Molly pressed her paw.
Molly tries to make the song stop by laying on top of Lulu, wrestling with her, and finally ripping out the stuffing.
Lulu Shags wants to assure everyone that Melissa McCarthy is a talented and funny woman and that Lulu did her own stunt work in the scene. There was no bear hate involved!
At the Giant Teddy watching party, Lulu Shags downplayed her own risks, saying she was always in full control of the scene.
Lulu Shags has loved the spotlight ever since discovering her own talent for magic tricks as a young cub. Being on a hit TV show was a dream come true for her.
Her beautiful soft pink fur really looked great on camera, and Lulu would love to do another show someday, or maybe even be a judge on a reality TV talent show featuring magic or dancing.
Lulu Shags has a special place in her heart for kids and animals. She loves to rally bear donations for children's hospitals so the kids have a furry friend by their side, and she hopes to one day lend her new fame to helping raise awareness for animal kindness events at shelters.
