A Care Bears Lover

Care Bear

The cute, cuddly Care Bears are born from images of stars, rainbows, hearts, clovers and clouds. Though already named the "Care Bears," American Greetings and its partners use the code name "Project II" to keep their development under wraps!

In 1983, the first ten original Care Bears officially introduced themselves in cards, toys and entertainment. They are:

Tenderheart Bear, Birthday Bear, Good Luck Bear, Friend Bear, Bedtime Bear, Grumpy Bear, Wish Bear, Funshine Bear, Cheer Bear, and Love-a-lot Bear.

The bear's first TV special, The Care Bears in the Land Without Feelings, is broadcast nationwide!
