Care Bear Wiki

Champ Bear is a Care Bear who has appeared across nearly all Care Bear generations after debuting as a plush toy in 1984.



Champ Bear has blue fur and his Belly badge depicts a yellow trophy with a red star on it.

In The Care Bears Family, Champ Bear has light yellow fur and wears a red sports headband and a red jacket with light yellow sleeves. He also has a belly badge of a heart emblazoned on a trophy.


Champ Bear is a real sports star. He's great at every sport, but he's even better at sharing the real prizes of sports: fun, fitness, friendship and learning to be your best. He even shows this with his symbol: a golden trophy with a star, (despite it originally featuring a heart).

The Care Bears' Big Wish Movie[]

In the second CG Care Bears video, Champ has a far larger role than in the previous movie, and is unusually, the leader of the Care Bears in this movie instead of Tenderheart.

Throughout the movie, he presides Care-a-lot's steering committee by showing how low the Caring Meter has been, and declares a Caring Month where everyone must Care more than usual.

Later, he alongside the other residents of Care-a-Lot welcome their new neighbors, Me Bear, Messy Bear, and Too Loud Bear to the community. Later in the film, when the new bears abuse the power of Wish Bear's wishing star Twinkers, their greed eventually becomes too severe and Care-a-Lot begins to fall apart at the seams. It is up to Champ and the other Care Bears, to rebuild it in the aftermath.
