Baby Hugs Bear (often abbreviated "Hugs"), is a Care Bear cub and the twin sister of Baby Tugs Bear. She made her first animated appearance in the 1984 television special The Care Bears Battle the Freeze Machine, and has since popped up in nearly every future incarnation of the series.

Profile[]

Appearance[]

Baby Hugs Bear has baby pink fur and her Belly badge was originally a yellow Starbuddy peeking out of a pink heart, which was changed to a plain yellow star the middle of a pink heart beginning with the 2007-2008 Adventures in Care-a-Lot series. It changed back to its original design in Unlock the Magic.

She has had slight design changes over the years, sporting a small pink bow in her first appearance in Care Bears Battle the Freeze Machine, and wears a heart barrette in her hair in Adventures in Care-a-Lot.

Personality[]

Sweet, curious, and loving, Baby Hugs has all the makings of a full-fledged future Care Bear. Almost never seen without her brother Tugs, the two always seem to get themselves into crazy situations thanks to their boundless curiosity and playful attitudes. Watching them is practically a full-time job, but it's one that Grams Bear is more than happy to fulfill. Hugs' catchphrase in the original series is "Oh, goody, goody gosh!".
