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

When the evil spell takes over the tree in the Forest of Feelings, Braveheart Lion has his symbol on his belly in the shot as Swift Heart rabbit is coming to the rescue. Even though they don't get their symbols until the end of the movie. See more »

Quotes

Movie of my childhood
7 May 2014 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

When I was a small kid, this was one of my favourite movies - one of those I watched every time I was forced to be at home because I was ill, and believe me, it was something that happened to me quite a lot.

First of all, I always watched only the Czech dubbed version of this movie, and since in my opinion those voices were masterfully chosen, it definitely added on the magic that is The Care Bears. That being said, maybe one of the reasons why I still like this movie is that there had been no madness with the same name, as some other reviewers say. True, the movie may seem as overly naive and even stupid to us nowadays, since we are used to see tons of blood and violence at every second step in absolutely everything, so this movie, focused on feelings, compassion and friendship is somehow alien to us.

All in all, maybe it really is just naivety on my side, but I really can't imagine not watching this movie, once I've seen it for the very first time.
