The Bear Necessities is the seventh episode of Power Rangers Wild Force. It explores the life of Taylor Earhardt during her time as Air Force Pilot and her subsequent discovery of the Animarium. The episode also introduces the Polar Bear Wildzord and the Black Bear Wildzord.
While out jogging near her old Air Force Base, Taylor is reminded of why and how she became the Yellow Ranger in the first place. She also encounters two mysterious twins dressed in white and black, and aids the mute boys in their search for a powerful flower. Are the twins more than they appear, and how will they be of help against the Growl Phone-jamming Cell Phone Org?
Taylor is seen jogging outside the air force base. She smiles at the fighter jets. A flashback shows the time when she discovered the Animarium. Suddenly she hears the voice of two kids who are trying to sneak in the air force base. She saves them from being caught by the security guard. The guard tells her that she resembles Taylor Earhardt who was the best pilot Turtle Cove ever had. A smile gleams on her face. Suddenly Cell Phone Org attacks the place. Taylor follows it but gets beaten badly. She hides in a factory. Cell Phone Org gets an army of Putrids. The two kids appear and the putrids attack. Taylor is unable to fight and collapses. She is healed by the two kids. The other Rangers arrive and get their morphing fields jammed. They arrive with a plan. Taylor is taken to an abandoned place and is asked to fetch the flowers. She loses balance and is about to fall. The Rangers destroy the antenna and Taylor morphs. She gives the flowers to the boys and inherits a couple of special beans from them. She arrives and destroys the Org using the Jungle Sword. The Org grows and the two kids arrive. They transform into Bear Brother Zords. They combine with the Megazord and defeat Cell Phone Org for good. However Red Lion falls ill as a result.
