Be prepared to tangle with this bear, Simba's wicked uncle Scar. Jon Vickery, who signed the teddy, portrayed The Lion King's villian in the original Broadway company of the long-running, sell-out Disney hit.

Broadway Bears VI, the annual Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS auction of one-of-a-kind Broadway Bears, will be held at B.B. King's Blues Club & Grill, Feb. 17. Alvin Colt, William Ivey Long, Theoni V. Aldredge, Jane Greenwood and Julie Taymor are among the designers of this year's cub club, with subjects to include Gary Beach (The Producers), Adam Pascal (Rent), Judy Garland in concert at the Palace and Lucille Ball (Wildcat).
