The Care Bears appeared in their own television series from 1985 to 1988, in addition to three feature films: The Care Bears Movie (1985), Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation (1986), and The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland (1987).

In 2002, the bears were reintroduced with new toys. Made by Play-Along Toys, the new toys offered features such as illuminated bellies upon touch, aerobic bears, and glow-in-the-dark bears. As part of this comeback, the Bears have appeared in two computer-animated movies: Journey to Joke-a-lot (2004) and Big Wish Movie (2005).

In 2007, the bears were once again relaunched. The 25th anniversary of the toy line was commemorated in 2007, and the Oopsy Does It! movie was released in commemoration of the 25th anniversary. As of 2008, Care Bears are still being marketed.

The “Care Bears” trademark and the copyrights in the character designs are currently owned by Those Characters from Cleveland, part of American Greetings.[1] However, on July 23, 2008, American Greetings announced that the Care Bears (along with Strawberry Shortcake) would be sold to Cookie Jar Entertainment in an acquisition due to take place on September 30, 2008. As of November 2008, the outcome of the deal is yet to be known. [2] However, a re-imaging of the bears, as a minor refreshing from American Greetings, was announced in November 2008.

In 2007, American Greetings relaunched Care Bears again, first with a series of dolls, then a new movie (Care Bears: Oopsy Does It!) and immediately after with a new TV series (Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot). The animation and artwork is completely different from the originals giving the Care Bears have smaller body structures and redesigned tummy symbols (now called belly badges). Also, instead of Nelvana, the film and the animated series are once again produced by DiC.

The redesigned Care Bears, as seen in the Oopsy does It! teaser title card. Notice the smaller body structure, redesigned head and facial features, refined belly badges/tummy symbol, and major logo redesign.

As part of the franchise’s 25th anniversary celebrations, the Bears have been redesigned by the AG Properties illustration team, and the logo of the franchise was redesigned to provide a more whimsical feeling. The new line consists of fifteen of the thirty-nine bears (as seen in the recent film). Five of the bears were chosen to be the focus of the franchise: Oopsy (a brand new bear who debuted in Oopsy Does It!), Cheer, Funshine, Grumpy, and Share Bear. The other bears include Amigo Bear, Wish Bear, True Heart Bear, Bedtime Bear, Surprise Bear, Love-a-Lot Bear, Harmony Bear, Superstar Bear, Heartsong Bear and Hopeful Heart Bear,[12] although the remaining 24 of the bears are also stated to have a release in the near future according to Play Along Toys[13].

The role of unofficial leader was re-transferred, this time permanently, to Cheer Bear. Their brand-new theme song is performed by former Letters to Cleo member, Kay Hanley, and the music video premiered on FOX and Nickelodeon.[11] In August 2007, they appeared in 20th Century Fox’s theatrical release of Care Bears: Oopsy Does It!.[14] This was followed by the television series from DiC Entertainment, Adventures in Care-a-Lot. The series premiered on CBS’ KEWLopolis block on September 15, 2007.

The Care Bears universe was rebooted upon the 2007 relaunch. Prior plot devices like the Cloudmobiles, Caring Meter, the Cloud Keeper and even Care-a-lot castle were not referred to or mentioned as of the new series (indeed, Care-a-lot castle doesn’t even appear to exist after the relaunch, as seen in the aerial shots of Care-a-lot shown at various points in various episodes of Adventures in Care-a-lot). In its place is the gathering tree, which is where the Care Bears now gather to meet or hold festivities. Also, the Care Bears have, up until the point of the first direct-to-DVD release for the new franchise (Grizzle-ly Adventures), never had humans visit Care-A-Lot, and a new villain named Grizzle (who seeks to conquer Care-a-lot and nothing else) was introduced. The February 2007 issue of the Wall Street Journal states that in the new version, “they live in a village, centered on a big tree—with no castle in sight.”[11]

However, as of late, it seems that American Greetings is changing the course of their actions. The Caring Meter made its return in Grizzle-y Adventures, and the second direct-to-DVD release of the franchise, Ups and Downs, included a passing remark regarding the Forest of Feelings. In addition, Care-A-Lot castle reappeared in certain scenes in the new game for the V.Smile Baby Infant Development System, Play Day.

Late 2008 Re-imaging

In late 2008, American Greetings announced that the Care Bears will be re-imaged with the launch of a new series, “Care Power Team”. This re-maging, while re-using AiCAL design, will now have the bears sport “enhanced belly badges” and see the bears taking on emergencies. The series will start with a soon-to-be-released DVD, “Share Bear Shines”.
