Care Bears & Care Cousins: A Decade of Adorable

Whom could resist a cute, cuddly and absolutely adorable Care Bear?! Personally, I do not have any interest in bears yet, a Care Bear, especially Grumpy tends to bring a smile to my face even in my sourest mood.

The 1980’s brought us The Care Bears, lovable looking toys but whom would have anticipated the mass explosion they assisted bringing us two movies, cards, toys beyond belief and then The Care Bear Cousins, a lion, lamb, raccoon, elephant, penguin, monkey, cat and dog.

If you really, really know your Care Bears, you might be able to answer this question: what two Care Bears characters actually swapped their colors? When the first Care Bears teddy bears were being made, someone made a goof and Bedtime Bear, who is blue, got his color switched with Wish Bear, who is aqua. The mistake was discovered and the bears were switched back to their appropriate hues. No one thought anyone would notice, but the kids did. A special Care Bears story was written to explain how, on an important caring mission, Wish Bear needed to change to Bedtime Bear’s blue to get into the land of dreams. If you know someone with an aqua Bedtime Bear or a Blue Wish Bear, you should let them know they have a very magical bear indeed!

One particular note, it has been said that King Arthur helped inspire the name of Love-A-Lot the elephant whom joined The Care Bears in the family tree for The Care Bear Cousins. Look carefully and see if your Care Bear has a red heart if not it may indeed be a fake for only a true Care Bear shall possess the small red heart on it’s hip.
