Trivia

  • The children characters in this series are redesigned with much younger features, which continues during the rest of the Nelvana-era.
  • Due to the negative response of the second Care Bears movie, scarier elements were toned down for the franchise, with a notable exception of the infamous scary image in that brief sequence in the third movie.
