The song was introduced in the 1965 movie The Sandpiper with a trumpet solo by Jack Sheldon and later became a minor hit for Tony Bennett (Johnny Mandel arranged and conducted his version as well). It won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year and the Academy Award for Best Original Song.

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/24/16:
|Mama Bear, Papa Bear, and
Baby Bear were having a great time chasing vacationers in a car
as they were visiting Yellowstone National Park.
"Yes, Baby Bear?"
"I think we could be doing a better job of scaring these vacationers."
"But, Baby Bear," Mama Bear injected. "What more can we do?"
"Maybe we'd have more of an effect on them if we got out of this car and started chasing them on all fours!"
