Care Bear Wiki
Advertisement

Shriekeline "Shreeky" No Heart is the secondary antagonist of Nelvana's The Care Bears Family and is the spoiled niece of No Heart.

At first, she appeared to be only visiting her uncle at his castle, but as she appeared in more and more episodes, her visit would appear to be more extensive than first thought. This living arrangement was greeted with much displeasure by No Heart's lackey Beastly, since he is the one who has to deal with her most of the time.

Perhaps in an attempt to get more free time for himself, No Heart allowed Beastly to become Shreeky's lowly assistant.

Appearance[]

Shreeky is a young girl who has purple hair with a thick green streak, worn in a ponytail, and purple nail polish. Her eyebrows are very pronounced, and the same color as the stripe in her hair. She wears a red sweater dress, purple vest, purple tights, red legwarmers, and purple shoes. She also wears purple eye shadow.

Personality[]

Shreeky is a spoiled and self-centered brat, frequently demanding others wait on her and prone to temper tantrums when she doesn't get things her way. She can't stand seeing anyone else enjoying themselves, and threw a fit when she accidentally made a child have more fun. Greedy, power-hungry and vain, many of Shreeky's plots are motivated by pure selfishness; Shreeky often has some sort of selfish goal in mind when she concocts a plot to torment the Care Bears or their friends, be it ruining someone's day or getting something she wants. In many of Grams Bear's stories, Shreeky plays the role of an antagonist with a selfish goal, such as making money or conquering the world. She dislikes hard work and delayed gratification, and despises doing chores.

Most of the time, when she works with Mr. Beastly, the two clash: Shreeky bosses Beastly around and refuses to give him credit for ideas to destroy the Care Bears, and his antics infuriate her. (The feeling would appear to be mutual: Beastly hates Shreeky as much as she hates him.) She also has plenty of fun at his expense, taking sadistic delight in his misery- especially when she's the one making him miserable. Beastly is her most frequent target for bullying. Despite everything, there's least a little sympathy for Beastly in Shreeky's heart during the events of Grin and Bear It, when No-Heart expels Beastly from the castle; however, as Shreeky is the one taking over Beastly's chores in his absence, it's likely her main motive was to get out of doing all the work.

Despite her generally unpleasant behavior, Shreeky does seem fond of No-Heart, her uncle. She treats the wizard with great courtesy compared to Beastly, although his usual intimidation tactics still work on her.

Abilities[]

Shreeky's trademark tantrums are her namesake: whenever she's particularly upset, she lets out a high-pitched, cacophonic scream. Her yelling is loud enough to break glass, crack ice and shatter crystal. It's also the one noise that can awaken the Care Bears from an enchanted sleep, induced by magic dust made by No Heart.

Like her uncle No Heart, Shreeky uses magic as her primary weapon, but whereas No Heart's magical powers seem to be concentrated in an amulet that he wears around his neck, Shreeky's magic seems to come from her Magic Mirror.

She usually uses the mirror to zap lightning bolts at Beastly's bum, to get him to work harder or move faster, or simply because she enjoys torturing him. Sometimes the Magic Mirror is able to perform other magic as well; however, it's no less fragile than a regular mirror, and often gets broken.

Trivia[]

  • Shreeky wears a belt buckle that resembles No Heart's Amulet.
  • Shreeky has never appeared in an episode without Beastly; this is likely because she was a later addition to the series than Beastly, and it clearly shows in her early designs that she's a temporary character.
  • Shreeky is on her good side in Music Video because of her attraction to Songfellow Strum as her favorite musician, it's only episode she doesn't mistreat the Care Bears.
  • Shreeky is the Witch of Winter in Caring for Spring.

In other languages:[]

Portuguese: Laurinha (common female name in Portuguese, seems to also mean to scream or shriek). "Laurinha" is a diminutive form of "Laura", which Shreeky has also been referenced as in Portuguese language translations of stories featuring her.

Finnish: Kirku/Rääkyli (Name "Kirku" was used in the first dub of Finnish Care Bears in early 1990's, derived from verb "kirkua", which means "to shriek". "Rääkyli" was the second name used for Shreeky in re-release dub of Care Bears in 2005. Rääkyli is derivered from verb "rääkyä", which means "To yell out loud in unpleasant way")
