Dawn and Hoopy the Bear is the fifty-fifth issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic comic book series.
Continuing the look into Buffy's life before Sunnydale, we take a detour with Dawn – a mysterious package is accidentally delivered to the younger Summers sister, and the enchanted teddy bear Hoopy wreaks havoc upon the life of the little ten year old. Intended to destroy the Slayer, the gift leads Dawn unwittingly into her first adventure, years before she'd ever be accepted into the Scooby Gang.
