Gentle Heart Lamb is a Care Bear Cousin who has made several appearances in original 1980's Care Bears media.

Appearance[]

Gentle Heart is a pastel green lamb whose Belly badge depicts a pink lace-trimmed heart-shaped pillow. She has blue oval eyes and a distinctive curl of long light green hair on her forehead. Gentle Heart's palms, face, inner ears, tummy fur, and the heart-shaped bottoms of her hooves are white. Her face is green in animated media and some official artwork. Her nose is heart-shaped and pink (green in most appearances).

Personality[]

As her name suggests, Gentle Heart is the most shy and soft-spoken of all Care Cousins. While she would never give pause to help others in need, she sometimes becomes fearful when things get woolly, and is hesitant to charge headlong into any situation. Despite this, her fondest wish is to be able to share her feelings like her Care Bear friends.

She has a speech trait that involves her sometimes "bleating" her lines and holding out her vowel sounds like a sheep.

Original series[]

The Care Bears Movie[]

Gentle Heart makes her debut appearance in the very first Care Bears feature film, where she is socializing with a butterfly, until she is called by Brave Heart Lion and Lotsa Heart Elephant to assist their new friends, the Care Bears, in preventing the evil Spirit from removing all caring from the world. Despite not having any special powers, she and the rest of the Care Cousins help their allies seal the villain away for good, and become official members of the Care Bear Family. The Care Bears Movie

Care Bears TV series[]

In the very first episode of the original Care Bears series, Gentle Heart is one of the Care Bear Family members who travels to Earth to help a boy named Matthew get over his jealousy of his new baby sister, Lisa. The Birthday Later, she and a number of Care Cousins have to convince a man named Mr. Johnson to leave work to go see his daughter Patti perform in her school play. The Show Must Go On

Gentle Heart has her first encounter with the evil Professor Coldheart when he attempts to kidnap all the Care Bear cousins and imprison them in his invisible cage. It is only with the help of a girl named Melanie, who must overcome her chronic daydreaming, that the day is saved and they are freed. Day Dreams Later, the professor tries to destroy Care-a-Lot by staging a mock wedding with Auntie Freeze inside the Hall of Hearts, and uses a special organ to produce destructive notes meant to break the building to shambles. Acting quickly, Gentle Heart plays a different tune on the instrument to put everything back together just in time. Wedding Bells

Later, on a seemingly normal day at the beach, three children go missing during a terrible storm, and Gentle Heart, Loyal Heart Dog, Proud Heart Cat, and Cozy Heart Penguin must rescue them using the Care Bears' ship. The Old Man and the Lighthouse

Care Bears Movie II[]

The second Care Bears film tells the story of how Gentle Heart and the rest of the Care Bear Family first arrived in Care-a-Lot after being rescued from the clutches of Dark Heart by True Heart Bear and Noble Heart Horse. While Gentle Heart only appears in a few crowd shots, it can be assumed that she too was captured by Dark Heart later in the film, and eventually helped him to become a real boy. Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation

The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland[]

Gentle Heart Lamb has a cameo appearance in the third and final movie.

Care Bears Family TV series[]

When No Heart plans to defeat the Care Bears one by one, he takes control of a hedge maze owned by a rich kid named Charles, covers it in giant living thorns, and lures various Care Bears and Care Cousins into it. Separated from her friends, the helpless Gentle Heart is hunted by No Heart in the shape of a large tiger, who nearly succeeds in eating her, until all the Care Bear members throughout the maze fire a Care Bear Stare from all directions. After No Heart's retreat, they eventually make their way out with the help of Charles's friends. Birthday Bear's Blues

2000's series[]

Gentle Heart is one of nine Care Bear Cousins who received a redesign for their 2003 re-launch toyline. Her appearance remains basically the same, but with a larger face and ears, smaller eyes, and an altered red and white patterned belly badge pillow instead of plain pink with buttons. This version has not appeared in any form of 2000's Care Bears media aside from merchandise.

Comic series[]

Gentle Heart from the comic

Gentle Heart makes only one appearance in Star Comics' Care Bears series in the issue 3 story "Blue Who?" as one of the Care Bear Cousins who fall under the effects of a strange blue beam that saps them of their strength and cheer. Thanks to the help of the Care Bears, however, they are able to find the source of the problem: a group of aliens known as the Gloomies, and eventually trick them into leaving the planet.

Trivia[]

  • Gentle Heart Lamb is the only member of the Care Bear Family whose name refers to a juvenile animal (rather than being referred to as a sheep, her name refers to her as a lamb).
    • This may indicate that, apart from Baby Hugs and Baby Tugs, she’s the youngest member of the Care Bear Family and the Care Bear Cousins overall.
  • Gentle Heart is mentioned in a line in the song "When You Care You're Not Afraid to Try" from The Care Bears Movie ("We're calling on the gentle hearts to keep us company.")
  • She can play the pipe organ, as seen in the original series episode "Wedding Bells."
  • Gentle Heart is referred to as a male in the character's official American Greetings description, but treated as a female in nearly all DIC and Nelvana animated adaptations. However, her American Greetings description likely does not mean much, considering every other Care Bear Cousin was referred to as male in their descriptions as well.
