Plot[]

Excitement runs high as the Care Bears attend a music concert with the singing minstrel.

Story[]

Hugs and Tugs are rummaging through a trunk and a sack in their house looking for something. Outside, Brave Heart is honking the horn of the Cloud Bus, calling out to the cubs to hurry up or they'll be late. Tugs finds what they're looking for, and board the bus. Tugs gives Brave Heart a cassette, which he pops into the player and "The Wheels on the Bus" start playing. At the next stop where Beastly and Shreeky are waiting, Shreeky is admiringly looking at a poster of Songfellow Strum, whose concert is taking place that night. The bus picks them up and continues on to its destination as the song continues to play, during which Beastly looks annoyed and nauseous at points. He suggests to Shreeky that next time, they take a cab instead. As the bus approaches the concert venue, Shreeky lets out a long, excited shriek which rattles the bus.

It seems that all of Care-a-Lot has gathered for the concert, Hugs commenting to Brave Heart that she likes the seats he chose for them. The announcer introduces Songfellow, who rises up from below the stage and encourages everyone to sing along, also talking to those watching at home. He starts the first song, "I'm a Little Teapot". During the second verse, he transforms into a blue teapot and turns himself upside down as it ends. He comments that he seems to be empty now, but loses the lid (his "hat") and water pours out to the delight of the audience. He transforms back to himself, thanking everyone.

For the next song, he requires a volunteer from the audience. The cubs look impressed. Beastly gruffly asks them if they really believe all "this magic stuff" before disappearing from his seat and appearing on stage. He is turned into a spider for "The Inky-Dinky Spider". After one verse of the song, Beastly angrily voices his protest over having to do it again, but unfortunately he has no choice. Songfellow appears afterward, and Beastly tiredly asks if he has to do it a third time, to which Songfellow grants him the chance to take a rest. The audience applauds, and Beastly bows, taking it all in before being transported back to his seat. He continues to get carried away, shouting out "ROCK AND ROLL!" enthusiastically. He then looks around and turns pink in embarrassment.

Brave Heart is chosen as the next volunteer, turning into Humpty Dumpty... albeit a bit small and with his tail still intact. When he falls off the wall during the song, the cubs look worried. Songfellow laments Humpty's fate, until a voice calls out. Brave Heart appears back on top of the wall, announcing "I'm back!" to a musical fanfare. As the cubs cheer with relief, they disappear out of their seats and become Jack and Jill in the next song, with Hugs rolling down the hill first and Tugs following her. At the bottom of the hill, they come across a flock of sheep. A black one pops up, the cubs commenting how cute he is. When the black sheep says that he can play guitar too, they immediately know it's Songfellow. He sings "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep", with a copy sheep singing along with him. Even Beastly is impressed with the performance, showing his approval by holding up a lighter. The two sheep bow at the end of the song, and merge back into Songfellow to cheers from the audience.

For the next song, Songfellow says he needs a pretty little girl to help out, and Shreeky hopes it's her. Beastly insults her, emphasizing the word "pretty", and Shreeky gets mad. As she is about to deck him, she vanishes out of her seat, Beastly following after her. The two act out the song "I've Been Working on the Railroad", Beastly playing the railroad worker with Shreeky playing "Dinah" (riding on top of the Magic Train). At the end of the song, Beastly kicks the back of the train, sending Shreeky on a ride. Sensing danger, Shreeky starts shrieking. She is then hurled into the air, landing in Songfellow's arms. And just when she is about to kiss her idol, she is transported back to her seat and instead kisses Beastly full on the lips. As Songfellow jokes that it seems like the two have decided to kiss and make up, Beastly and Shreeky turn away from each other and spit in disgust. The audience cheers loudly for them.

The last song, Songfellow sings for everyone, hoping they had as good a time as he did. He sings "You Are My Sunshine", Shreeky listening with admiration as Beastly next to her sits with a paper bag over his head. As the song finishes, Songfellow vanishes into sparkles and rises up towards the night sky, where he becomes a shining star.
