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 "Care Bear Family" song, the cousins all obtain their tummy symbols, but in a later shot, they're all drawn without any tummy symbols. See more »

Quotes

Friend Bear: [singing] You'll need a friend to let your feelings free.

care bears
16 March 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It's a great film cause it hasn't got too much violence as other new cartoons do, and it bring back memory's to grownups of there childhood days. the songs are great, especially the main song which i think is called care-a-lot which is what's it about, and it truly gets you in the heart where it's suppose to.

it proves that the 80's cartoons were better than todays cartoons made by Japanese, cause they always like killing and fighting, but this animated film show we shouldn't kill or hate each other in the world but care for each other by being friends and sharing and caring and even helping each other have a great life with happiness around us.
