Care Bears TV series
After receiving his new braces from the dentist, a boy named Joey becomes convinced that they look awful and all of his friends won't want anything to do with him. On the contrary, Fred doesn't even notice his new mouth-wear until he brings it up, and doesn't think they're anything to worry about. However, a bully named Tommy begins to give Joey a rough time over them, which causes him to run away from school.
After an incident at a construction site where Tommy falls and gets hurt, the Care Bears rush him back to school to recuperate. Feeling bad about the way he acted earlier, he tells Joey that he was sorry for making fun of him, and joins his circle of friends including Fred.
