Beastly (sometimes referred to as Mr. Beastly in earlier episodes) is the secondary antagonist of Nelvana's The Care Bears Family. He serves the wizard No Heart. In the second and third seasons, he became the minion of No Heart's niece Shreeky. He is funny, happy-go-lucky, clumsy, mischievous, murderous, dramatic, angry, grouchy, cocky, goofy, arrogant, impatient, bratty, rude, grumpy, and reckless.
Beastly was introduced to the Care Bears universe in the first episode of the Nelvana TV series "Care-a-Lot's Birthday". He is a creature resembling a potato with fur. Beastly wears a green hat with a red cloth around his neck.
He has yellow eyes, which are pretty big.
He has a unique laugh that sounds like "Cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-chya!".
Beastly's antics are comical, even if he always talks about how evil he is. He often messes up No Heart's plans unintentionally, which turns out to be really funny. Despite all his efforts to capture the Care Bears, he endures physical and verbal abuse from No Heart and Shreeky. In Grin and Bear It after No Heart threw him out for ruining his thunderpit, he tries being good like The Care Bears, but, in the end, reverts to his evil ways, since being nice is too difficult for him to deal with.
Although he fears and respects No Heart, he demonstrates an overall loathing of Shreeky. When he first heard she was coming to visit, he promptly stated it was bad news (and then tried to say he meant good news due to No Heart's apparent anger). His fear of being zapped on the bum by Shreeky's magic mirror is usually what motivates him to serve her. Beastly often comes up with workable plans to thwart the Care Bears, but when he explains them to Shreeky, she tells him he's stupid, then repeats his idea and takes credit for it. Occasionally Beastly gets a chance to be free of his tormentors, such as one example where Shreeky was trapped by the Care Bears and ranted for Beastly to free her, while Beastly laughed and enjoyed himself as it appeared she was trapped in a soundproof area.
Caring Crystals and the Care Bear Stare have a powerful impact on Beastly. When exposed to either, he temporarily becomes extremely friendly and helpful.
