Munchkin The Dog Is The Ultimate Ewok Impersonator

Meet Munchkin, the teddy bear/dog who plays the role of Ewok better than anyone.

When it comes to fan girls and boys, there’s no following quite as strong or loyal as those for “Star Wars.”

In a video uploaded to YouTube last week by Munchkin the Teddy Bear, a dog named Munchkin blows the roof off of every previous attempt at Ewok cosplay you’ve ever seen. The video features Munchkin in her bear suit, set in a backyard “far, far away,” and her tiny little Ewok-clad body running toward the camera. The level of cuteness shown here is OFF. THE. CHARTS.

Munchkin is already an Internet star, and is known as Munchkin the Teddy Bear, as she often dressed in a teddy bear suit that almost matches the color of her fur. She has an extremely strong following on Facebook, Twitter and Vine, and has been featured in many news segments.

    • Excellent point…all articles and videos of pets performing should also tell us how they were trained to do the tricks

  • Darling dog, but I hate to see dogs “dressed up” the only person who likes it is the owner, I’m sure the dog doesn’t.

    • Just what I was thinking. Saying the dog dressed up as is wrong. More realistic is that someone dressed the dog as . . . dogs come dressed in their natural fur. Let ’em be. That other stuff is for the entertainment of owners and ignorant fans only.

      Same for cats, or any other animals. They are at their best when they’re natural.

  • I have a 14-year-old Shih-Tzu that looks a lot like Munchkin. Sophie has two drawers and part of a closet FULL of her clothes. We got Sophie when she was four months old – AND SHE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE IMELDA MARCOS OF THE DOG WORLD! She absolutely LOVES her clothing – and always dances around when we take something out of the drawer! Sophie is queen of our house, and my FURBABY – and we would NEVER force her to wear ANYTHING if she didn’t positively LOVE to do so!
    Munchkin, as a Shih-Tzu, LOVES the attention and being the star of the show – there is absolutely NOTHING in the video to indicate she is not having a GREAT time!!! That’s what Shih-Tzus DO!

  • It would be interesting to have an Animal Communicator ask the dog how she feels about it!

  • I agree with all who are against dressing any animal in a costume. Does their owner think they really enjoy it? I had tried it with all my animals, they hated it and I wouldn’t do that to them again.. Why doesn’t their owner get dressed up in a stupid costume????

  • I HATED seeing Munchkin walking on the treadmill. That is just so wrong to do to.
