Love-a-Lot Bear has bright pink fur and her Belly badge depicts two joined red and pink hearts. The red heart has a pink outline and the pink heart has a yellow outline.
In Care Bears: Adventures In Care-a-Lot, she has a short ponytail tied in a clip (with hearts) and a purple scarf.
As of Unlock the Magic, two faces are added onto the center of the intertwined hearts.
Love-a-Lot is a kind bear that loves everything, and everyone. She has the propensity to use the word "love" itself in most of her speech. Love-a-Lot shares a similar personality with the rest of the bears. Her personality is fitting to her horoscope, which is Aquarius.
Love-a-Lot's special task is to help spread love (similar to Cupid). Like the other Care Bears, she can use the Care Bear Stare.
Love-a-Lot Bear makes her animated debut in the very first Care Bears 1983 television special, The Care Bears in the Land Without Feelings.
The follow up special: The Care Bears Battle the Freeze Machine, Love-a-Lot is among the bears who must once again stop Coldheart and his new sidekick Frostbite from tricking a boy named Paul into helping him complete his "Careless Ray Contraption" that will freeze everyone's feelings.
In The Care Bears Movie, Love-a-Lot Bear appears as one of the bears who welcomes the children Kim and Jason to Care-a-Lot during the "Nobody Cares Like a Bear" song sequence. She is later part of the crew of the ship The Cloud Clipper as they travel through the Forest of Feelings looking for their lost friends. After re-uniting with their wayward comrades, and joining forces with the Care Bear Cousins, the group travels to Earth to combat the evil Spirit and seal her away for good.
Love-a-Lot Bear appears in the DIC series. She has a major role in the episode "The Cloud Worm" where she is the first character to find the worm itself.
Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation tells the story of how the Care Bear Family, including Love-a-Lot first arrived in Care-a-Lot after they escaped capture by the evil Dark Heart. When the villain later propositions a girl named Christy into helping him finally capture his fuzzy prey once and for all, Love-a-Lot is among the few remaining members not to be imprisoned, and must formulate a plan along with two children named John and Dawn to rescue their friends.
Care Bears Care About the Environment series
Around 1991, Love-a-Lot Bear and several other Care Bears received temporary redesigns in both artwork and plush form in order to bring about environmental awareness. Despite appearing in several books and even stickers, this new line was relatively short-lived due to a lack of popularity and low sales.
Love-a-Lot Bear's appearance for this series featured her with darker pink fur with a much more complex heart tummy symbol that depicted her typical two hearts with the addition of a rainbow and a field.
In Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot, Love-a-Lot Bear works in the Smart Heart Library, where the other Bears go if they have questions or if they need quiet time.
She is one of the main characters in Present and Accounted For, where Care-a-Lot is celebrating her Birthday, and Cheer plans a big gift-basket surprise for Love-a-Lot, but when the gifts get stolen, the two Bears end up jumping to conclusions, and causing a big problem.
In this series, She punctuates everything with the word "love" or a variation of such.
Love-a-Lot makes minor roles in Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot.
In this series, she was part of a Belly Badge Bouts team in competition with Cheer, Funshine, Grumpy, Harmony and Share, and was once a member of the team, "Bear-a-Lots".
She is the main character in the episode "Festival of Hearts", where she travels to the Silver Lining to send her magical gifts to the bears in the Silver Lining.
