I loved this show as a child, and at 18 I still have a soft spot for it...
13 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think the reason why I loved The Care Bears so much, was because it was part of my childhood, and I have a thing for nostalgia. I loved this show as a kid, and at 18 when I revisited it I was really surprised at how good it still was. It is pretty much childhood innocence personified.

The animation is clean and colourful, the music is really good with a simple and memorable theme tune and the story lines were gripping, exciting and surprisingly intelligent. Even the writing wasn't childish. And I love how unique the characters are, I love how all the Care Bears have interesting and endearing personalities and unique character traits. I love all of them so much I cannot decide which one is my favourite.

Out of the reoccurring villains, my personal favourite was Professor Coldheart, he was deliciously evil and frosty yet absolutely hilarious and crazy. The character was superbly voiced by Len Carlson, actually one of the most interesting voices on the show, it is a shame though he isn't credited on this site he deserves it. In fact though, the voice acting was very well done. Overall a great childhood favourite, not bland or anything like it, it is colourful and simple the way I like it. 10/10 Bethany Cox
