Tugs in The Care Bears Movie

Baby Tugs Bear has baby blue colored fur and his Belly badge formerly was a yellow Starbuddy resting inside a blue cloth diaper. His Belly Badge was changed in the 2007-2008 series Adventures in Care-a-Lot to a pink heart inside a yellow star. It changed back to its original design in Unlock the Magic.

Personality[]

In Tugs' own mind, Tugs is a full-fledged, full-grown Care Bear, and can be really brave, though he is hardly ever without his twin sister. They both get along, but like every brother and sister, they sometimes fight.

Naturally curious and playful, Tugs and Hugs have a habit of getting into trouble, and are usually looked after by Grams Bear, Grumpy and Champ Bear. In Adventures in Care-a-Lot, the twins are looked after by Cheer Bear.
