Personality

Treat Heart's early illustration

Treat Heart values nothing more than having a good time, especially if said activity involves a heaping horde of snacks. Whether they're big or small, this porcine pal encourages others to celebrate life's various victories and special days in any way possible. Though one might think of a pig as greedy, Treat Heart is especially fond of helping others, and is prone to bursting into fits of laughter for little to no reason.

Original series

The Care Bears Movie

Treat Heart from The Care Bears Movie

Treat Heart makes her first appearance, along with the rest of the Care Bear Cousins, in the very first Care Bears movie. When the Bears travel to the Forest of Feelings to look for their friends, they encounter a number of Care Cousins who respond to the call of Lotsa Heart Elephant and Brave Heart Lion, one of which includes their curly-tailed comrade. Together with her new friends, Treat Heart travels to Earth to help the Care Bears defeat the villainous Spirit, sealing her away for good, and is made an official member of the Care Bear Family for her trouble.

Care Bears TV series

Treat Heart makes only a few appearances in DiC's Care Bears animated series. In the very first episode, she attends a birthday party for Birthday Bear himself, giving him a year's supply of double chocolate fudge. Birthday Later, when the evil Professor Coldheart attempted to cover the entire Forest of Feelings in ice, Treat Heart was the first one to be frozen solid by his new ice gun. Forest of Misfortune She is also one of the Care Bear Cousins to be captured by the mad professor when he attempts to take over the magical forest. Daydreams

Care Bears Movie II

Though not actually seen in the movie itself, it can be presumed that Treat Heart was among the Care Bear Cubs who arrived in Care-a-Lot after escaping from Dark Heart, and eventually ended up in the Forest of Feelings with the rest of the Cousins. It can also be presumed that she was later captured and imprisoned in Dark Heart's lair and eventually released. Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation

Treat Heart's later design from "The Wrath of Shreeky"

Treat Heart is the focus of the episode "The Wrath of Shreeky," where she travels to Earth to help a girl from the city named Anne not be afraid of bugs and animals from the country. However, when No Heart's niece Shreeky arrives at his castle, she takes it upon herself to get rid of the Care Bears once and for all, with Treat Heart having to rescue both Anne and her friends at the same time. The Wrath of Shreeky

Later, during one of Grams Bear's stories to Baby Hugs and Tugs, Treat Heart is cast in the role of a princess in competition with Cheer Bear for the throne of a small kingdom. After vanquishing a two-headed monster (complete with the heads of Shreeky and Mr. Beastly), the two decided to both become queen as co-rulers. The Two Princesses

Notes

Plush of Treat Heart.

  • Treat Heart Pig is referenced in a line from the song "When You Care You're Not Afraid to Try" from The Care Bears Movie ("...and it would be a 'treat heart' if you would follow me.")
  • She is perhaps the least-represented of all the Care Bear Cousins, making no physical appearance in either the second Care Bears movie or the comic book series, and is one of only two cousins (along with Noble Heart Horse) to not receive an updated design for the 2003 Care Cousin relaunch toyline. She does, however, make more appearances in the later half of Nelvana's Care Bears Family series.
  • Treat Heart is referred to as a male in the character's official American Greetings profile and Forest of Misfortune, but is depicted as a female in animation.
  • Treat Heart makes a cameo appearance in The Rosey & Buddy Show.
