        What's it like to live the life of a famous bear? Ask Jonas Prohaska, who created the costume and gave life and voice to the cookie mooching bear on The Andy Williams Show Saturdays (7:30-8:30 p.m.) on the NBC Television Network.

        Prohaska says: "I enjoy the success the bear is having on the show. The cast and crew also seem to enjoy the bear blackouts and I think Andy more than any of us.
        Any recognition that I get from doing it is purely incidental. I don't think of myself as a personality, but I as a person who gives life to — who animates — a personality."
        The bear concept evolved out of a one - time idea that paid off in one . of last season's earlier shows. Comedian Flip Wilson (now star of NBC-TV's "The Flip Wilson Show") was a guest and producers Chris Beard and Allan Blye came up with the idea of inserting a bear into the act.

        Says Beard: "The bear sort of represents a down trodden fellow who keeps banging on the door of life, and is constantly being turned away. A social comment if you like. His performance on the show says something about prejudice, and rather reflects people's ideas of acceptance and non-acceptance. We received such a hearth response from that first performance, that we decided to make it a regular part of the show."

        Prohaska constructs many of his own creations in the workshop of his Santa Monica home. Having performed since the age of 12 as an acrobat in Hungary, Prohaska now prefers to tinker in his shop.
