Profile[]

Appearance[]

Amigo Bear has red-orange fur and his Belly badge is a red abstract spiral sun surrounded by small hearts with little party streamers.

Personality[]

While all Care Bears speak the universal language of caring, Amigo Bear is particularly flexible in the communication department. Being the first truly bilingual bear doesn't just give him a padded résumé, but also twice the potential reach out and help those in need. His goals themselves are two-fold: he wants to be an amigo to all those around him, and do so while representing Hispanic culture. Though his name is a direct translation of "Friend Bear", he is not to be confused with the actual Friend Bear.

2006-2007 Toy Range[]

Amigo made his debut in 2006 during the Care Bears relaunch toyline by Play Along. He was made available in several varieties, including a comfy plush, a "troll hair" plush, a 12" limited edition mango-scented plush that is packaged and comes with a Care Bears Family DVD, and a Bilingual Tele-Friend plush that comes with a phone that interacts with the toy and allows it to speak in English and Spanish.

Adventures in Care-a-Lot[]

Amigo appears in Adventures in Care-a-Lot, where he is the local ice cream vendor of Care-a-Lot. His belly badge was also simplified to include a plain red aztec-style spiral sun surrounded by small hearts.

He is the main focus of the episode Ice Creamed, where his Ice Cream cart is smashed to pieces due to a failed plot by Grizzle, so Grumpy builds him a robotic cart that has an infinite supply of Ice Cream. In the end, he decides that a regular one is better as too much Ice Cream wouldn't be good for you.
