Take a cold hard look at the wording above. Does something look wrong to you? Do you remember it being Berenstein with an E, not Berenstain with an A?

If you do, you're not alone. There are many who remember it this way. In fact, there are so many Berenstein believers that people in the know will cite that as proof that this is a glitch in the matrix.
Basically, there is an entire subset of the population that adamantly believes The Berenstein Bears (I refuse to believe it's spelled with an "a" dammit!) is spelled incorrectly.

A similar large group of people also believe that the word "dilemma" is spelled "dilemna", myself being one of them too.

One of the arguments for this mass confusion is the alternate universe theory.

Now I will be spending the weekend at my folks' house digging for the old books I know they still have. Mind blown indeed.

I can distinctly remember seeing both spelling on two different books in my elementary school library.
Both spellings exist. This was talked about some time ago on some corner of the internet.

My mother-in-law still has my wife's Berenstein Bears books from when they grew up. We'll have to have her find them.

Hell...I'm old enough that I remember when the Yankees were owned by George Stainbrenner.
