Steal A Topic Saturday:

"80s Care Bears Trilogy: A Hot Mess"

This is where the girls started to get confused in their

video. Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation (my

favorite movie) is a 1986 animated musical fantasy

film produced by LBS Communications and Nelvana

The second Care Bears movie is a franchise reboot

(hence a new generation title) that introduced two new Care Bear characters Noble Heart Horse and True Heart Bear along with movie villain Dark Heart (aka The Devil) and Great Wishing Star (aka God). I want to note this movie has some

low-key religious feels if you have Christian religious

background. This movie was made for the follow-up

new animated series The Care Bears Family. The

Care Bears & Cousins continue their missions in

Caring thwarting the evil plans of the new series

villain, Lord No Heart! The series introduces new

characters The Panda Twins (Polite & Perfect Panda

[My favorite episode]), and Beastly (No Heart's

henchman). Season 1 has 16 segments out of 13 episodes.


The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland is the third film of the franchise (the second film in the Care Bears Family series/continuity). This 1987 animated musical fantasy film was the worst of the three films (shocking). The only reason I watched Care

Bears in Wonderland is for the intro song by the late

Natalie Cole. Followed by this a month later was Care

Bears Family season 2 which introduced Shreeky (No

Heart's niece) and only had 10 segments out of 6 

episodes. This season (and beyond) was weird because

they only focused on five or six characters between the

Care Bears & Cousins who started wearing clothes

(the late 80s for ya). The first segment is usually about

Beastly bamboozling the clothed-wearing Care Bears

while the second segment is about Grams Bear telling

various fantasy stories such as Care Bears being

cavemen or traveling in space like the Star Trek crew.

Season 3 premiered on September 12, 1988, and had

38 segments & 3-part story out of 30 episodes. The last

3 episodes are the TV film Care Bears Nutcracker Suite which is loosely based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.



BONUS FACTS

-The 10 original Care Bears starting from the top going

down left to right are:

Tenderheart Bear

Friend Bear

Wish Bear 

Cheer Bear

Good Luck Bear

Birthday Bear

Bedtime Bear

Funshine Bear 

Love-a-Lot Bear 

Grumpy Bear

-The Care Bears Movie is the only 1980s theatrical movie of the franchise that was released on DVD more than once, as it was considered successfully marketed. Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation was only released once on DVD back in 2003, as it wasn't nearly successful due to the frightening themes that were regarded by parents. The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland never made it on DVD in North America at all, as it was considered a marketing failure.
-"Strawberry Shortcake Meets the Berrykins" is a theatrical featurette, played before the Care Bears when first released in theatres. It was later, also included on VHS of The Care Bears Movie.

-Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation has been criticized by many parents for the involved frightening themes, including Dark Heart's evil aspects and the infamous Chandelier

-Due to the negative response to the second Care Bears movie, scarier elements were toned down for the franchise, with a notable exception of the infamous "scary face", used right when The Wizard says "Everything as I command!" It is known to even scare adult viewers when watching that scene for the first time in the third movie.

The Care Bears are a group of characters created by the 

American Greetings company in 1981. In 1983, Atkinson

Film-Arts of Ottawa (weird creepy-looking Canadian

animation) produced the first two Care Bears animated

specials, "The Care Bears in the Land Without Feelings"

& "The Care Bears Battle the Freeze Machine". 


-Special #1: Introduces the original 10 Care Bears,

The Cloud Keeper & the villain Professor Coldheart.

-Special #2: Introduces Grams Bear and Baby Hugs &

Tugs and Frostbite(Prof. Coldheart's henchman).


The Care Bears Movie is a 1985 animated musical fantasy

film based directly on a toy line. The first featured film

introduced new Care Bears characters (Share Bear,

Champ Bear, Secret Bear, & Harmony Bear) and the 

Care Bear Cousins. Following the success of the movie

DIC Audiovisuel's American branch DIC Enterprises aired

on syndication the Care Bears' first animated television

series. With the help of the Cousins, the Care Bears go

all around the world on Missions in Caring whilst they try

to thwart the plans of the evil Professor Coldheart. This

series has 22 segments out of 11 episodes.

​YouTuber TallSwordLady talks about the confuzzalness of the 80s Care Bears Trilogy. Today I'm going to clear up its semi-confusing continuity. At some point, I would like to talk about the movies themselves in greater detail (especially the second film) but that's for another day. Let's run it!
