The Berenstain Bears in Big Paw's Cave © 1983 Enter-Tech.

The controls are a single 8-way joystick, used to control Brother Bear, a member of the Berenstain Bears family, who is navigating a switchback path across an underground chasm in order to sneak past Big Paw (a non-anthropomorphic bear) and reach the outside. The levels increase in difficulty both by virtue of a longer path and more obstacles, including bats, falling stalactites, etc.

The final Moppet title released by Intrepid Marketing. Considered the rarest of all 6 Moppet titles. It was the only Moppet title that had dedicated side art unique to its game title. It did not have the usual Moppet side art with two children's faces.

The only known cabinet of this game was at Harborview Hospital in the 80s. It is no longer there. There is one cabinet in the private collection of a collector in California. The other 5 Moppet Miniature game titles were "Leprechaun", "Pirate Treasure", "Tugboat", "Noah's Ark" and "Desert Race".

The Berenstain Bears in Big Paw's Cave was the most complex of the Moppet Video games released by Enter-Tech, Ltd.. While there was one additional Moppet Video game that was in development at the same time as this one, Popeye, it was never finished or released.
