Storyline

The Care Bears live in a country high in the clouds, where they have a lot of fun together. But they also do care for the human children on Earth, who they watch through huge telescopes from the sky, and come to help whenever there is need. Nikolas, a magician's apprentice, is in danger of getting under the influence of a bad spirit, which resides in an ancient spell book. The siblings Kim and Jason don't trust anyone anymore after being disappointed once too often. The Care Bears take them into their wonderland where they experience exciting and dangerous adventures together and quickly become good friends.

Trivia

While many of the spells that Nicholas uses are obviously made up words, one word he does use when casting a spell on his mentor to put him to sleep is 'ishkabibble'. This was actually a very popular American slang term for about 20 years or so starting around 1913 and means, appropriately enough, 'Who cares'. See more »

Goofs

During the final song where the Care Bear Cousins obtain their tummy symbols, Playful Heart Monkey is drawn without one, after he had just received it. See more »

Quotes

Nicholas: It's not going to work! Even the spell won't defeat them!
The Spirit: The spell was just having a little sport. The children are it's true target. Perhaps a sprinkle of toadstool mold will speed things up.

Give the Bears some credit already!
19 July 2000 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Mention the Care Bears and for some reason everyone starts to cringe or think of nasty things to do to them. I have to say it breaks my heart that so many people are against a cartoon that teaches kids about empathy, friendship, and conflict resolution (and all without fighting).

I recently had the pleasure of acquiring a copy of this movie, and I, for one, am going to treasure it. I'm serious. Watch it with a little kid who takes the Power Rangers too seriously. I guarantee you'll be a little misty eyed by the end, and the kid will discover the revolutionary idea that it's not against the rules to befriend the monster instead of battling it.

I know I won't have a lot of people backing me up here, but I thought I should put my two cents in. And anyhow, Grumpy Bear is too cute.
