You are correct.
"Pedobear is the 4chan re-make of the 2chan character known as Kuma-san (Mr. Bear). Much like many famous lines and ideas from 2chan, the "Americanization" of Kuma-san turned him into the sinister Pedobear, known for molesting female children and giving awards for those who do it like he would. Pedobear has even appeared in the webcomic Nana's Everyday Life, where he forces himself on the unfortunate, limbless girl, much to her obvious dismay. Pedobear, along with Happy Negro, Cockmongler, and Longcat is easily one of /b/'s most cherished and respected memes. He has many friends, each of them taking an animal form and representing a different fetish."
