Michael Pooh Bear Brunner

Michael Brunner in 2019.

Michael Brunner is the son of Charles Manson and Mary Brunner. Born in 1968, Valentine Michael Manson was nicknamed Pooh Bear.

In 1970, Mary Brunner’s parents petitioned for guardianship of Michael Brunner and won. Brunner is very grateful to have been raised by his grandparents in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Michael Brunner never knew his biological father. When he was younger Brunner saw Manson as a evil person. However Brunner’s feeling towards Manson changed over the years. In a conversation with Manson’s grandson, Jason Freeman, Brunner said:

(quote from Brunner’s Facebook)
“I know that most of the world thinks my father deserves no respect. They think he was just a piece of shit that could be bought and sold. I don’t think that way. I see him as a man that was turned into a commodity.”

Today Michael “Pooh Bear” Brunner still resides in Wisconsin.

I do respect that the site has censored some info on various family members. But wasn’t “pooh-bear” on a T.V. show in the 90’s on Manson’s children?

Doesn’t matter. People knowing what he looks like today could hurt him. Its not his fault, but a lot of people are still angry over what happened, and don’t understand that the kids were victims of those circumstances too. Better safe then sorry.
