―Share Bear's bio

Share Bear is a Care Bear who was first introduced in the 1980s toyline, and later made her animated debut in The Care Bears Movie in 1985.

During Nelvana's Care Bears Family TV series, she had her own PSA segment at the end of some of the earlier episodes, and was the focus of the 2009 direct-to-video movie Share Bear Shines.



Share Bear has lavender purple fur and her Belly Badge was originally a pink sprinkled ice cream soda with two straws in it. However, it was changed in 2002 to two abstract heart shaped lollipops (one being pink with a blue heart and stick and the other being blue with a pink heart and stick). This change was made due to concerns from Play-Along-Toys (who owned a license to the care bears characters at the time) that sharing drinks can spread harmful bacteria and even viruses. The decision was made after an outbreak of Meningitis in the U.S. the year prior.

If sharing truly is caring, then Share Bear may just be the best of the lot. This incredibly selfless bear would gladly give up her last possession to make someone happy, even if she couldn't magically duplicate it first. But sharing objects is only half of her character, and she just as willing to share a laugh, some fun, sweets, or some advice with anyone around. Her personality is fitting to her horoscope, which is Virgo.


Her belly badge gives her the power to create tangible lollipops, which can be used to help her solve any problems she may be facing, although this method is generally only used as a last resort. The belly badge also has the power to duplicate and divide items, as shown in Adventures in Care-a-Lot, Welcome to Care-a-Lot, and Unlock the Magic.

In the 2012 Welcome to Care-a-Lot series, she also has the ability to talk to animals.

Share Bear as seen in one of her PSA segments from Care Bears Family

While Share doesn't have many speaking appearances the Nelvana-produced Care Bears Family series itself, she does have her own PSA segment that appears at the end of some episodes in the first season called "The Care Bears Share a Lesson in Caring", which often involve Share Bear solving a problem or ending an argument among some children by giving a sharing solution.

Her first major appearance in an actual episode is in the episode Grams Bear's Thanksgiving Surprise, when she travels to Earth to help a boy named Tony prepare to give a speech at his town about Thanksgiving. However, when a mad baker named Sour Sam corrupts the citizens with his Crabby Apple Pies, she and Tony must confront him along with Grams Bear and reverse the damage he's done.

Care Bears Care About the Environment[]


Share Bear's 1991 redesign, artwork and plush

Around 1991, Share 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.

Share Bear's appearance for this series featured her with purple fur with a much different tummy symbol that depicted a pink heart with an overarching rainbow ending in flowers.

2000's Series[]

Starting from this era, Share's tummy symbol has been changed to two pink and blue criss-crossed lollipops with hearts.

Journey to Joke-a-lot[]

Share Bear is a character in the first computer-animated Care Bears film, Journey to Joke-a-lot. After Funshine Bear runs away to the titular town so his practical jokes can be appreciated, he is crowned king as part of a secret plot by a rat named Sir Funnybone to steal the royal treasure, and Share is among the bears who go on the mission to find Funshine and come to Joke-a-lot to help stop him.

The Care Bears' Big Wish Movie[]

File:Share Bear 2005.png

Share's CGI appearance

In the second CGI Care Bears video, Share Bear is among the residents of Care-a-Lot who 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 seems. Its up to the Care Bears, including Share, to rebuild it in the aftermath.

Share has a slightly bigger part in the movie as one of the problems Twinkers fixes near the start of the movie, as she is trying to extract rainbow sap from the trees to make into syrup for the rainbow lollipops she wants to make. The wish comes true and the sap flows out, but the wish works too good and Share ends up handling far too much sap than she thought. The syrup is then later used for Grumpy's rocket to return Care-a-lot to normal.

Oopsy Does It![]

Share Bear appears in the Care Bears: Oopsy Does It! direct-to-video film as one of the citizens of Care-a-Lot whose Belly Badge is stolen by Grizzle after he tricks Oopsy Bear into helping him.

Adventures In Care-A-Lot[]

Aical share02

Share is one the main five recurring Care Bears. Her trademark signature look is a set of pink hair bobbles to match her shoulder bag with a pale pink heart in the middle. Her belly badge is also a more "simplified" look, appearing uneven and slightly further apart from each other, and the sticks are solid colored.

As a member of Care Bear Honeys, she plays the tambourine.

She seems to have a very slight speech impediment called a Rhotacism where she seems to subtly mispronounce or soften her "R's". Sometimes it may be more prominent in some episodes, making her sound a bit younger than the rest of the Care Bears.

Share Bear Shines[]

Share Bear is the main character of this movie. When Share Bear travels to the fabled home of Princess Starglo, said to be the one who turns baby twinklets into full-grown wishing stars, she finds it less hospitable than the stories suggest. As Starglo denies her request to help her young star friend grow, she reveals that she is dismantling her entire operation since no one believes in her anymore. While Share tries to get her to change her mind, a group of bears, including Cheer travel to Starglo's home to look for her, and end up using a Care Bear Stare to change her outlook on the situation and make stars again.

Welcome To Care-A-Lot/Care Bears & Cousins[]

Share is one of the main characters in Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot. In this series, Share is potrayed as a cook who enjoys making lovely treats, and enjoys sharing them with her friends.

She lives in a tree house in the Forest of Feelings. In this incarnation, she regains her 2002 appearance and belly badge, albeit retaining the "farther apart" style from the previous incarnation.
