The Hood Residence is the home of Dr. James B. Hood, a local dentist, who is also revealed to be the owner of a circus in Bear Facts. His wife's name is unrevealed, but he calls her "mother." He has a daughter, Darla, and a son, James B. Hood II, typically called Junior. His kids hang out with a number of the neighborhood kids. In Bear Facts, he's very eager to dissuade them from running away with the circus, but as he sees too much of them around his home, he starts to get exasperated by them, particularly in Night 'N' Gales and Feed 'Em And Weep. Sadly, his wife later passes on and he remarries in Wedding Worries.
