The Hub President and CEO Margaret Loesch and Share Bear announce "Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot"

A new Care Bears series will be coming soon to the Hub. Earlier this month when announcing their 2012-2013 program slate a new series “Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot” was announced. No real details were given at the time aside from it being CGI and airing starting this summer. Here’s the relevant part of that press release:

“Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot” (Hub Original Series)

Take one step into Care-a-Lot and prepare for wishes to come true and unbelievable adventures to ensue! Coinciding with the property’s 30th anniversary, a new CGI-animated series “Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot” is set to debut this summer to reconnect with kids and families. Care-a-Lot is the high-above-the-earth home of the Care Bears – the coolest, most caring-est, magical friends around! It’s a whimsical world where the Care Bears help children navigate their feelings through music, love, belly-badge powers and great big Care Bear hugs. Produced by American Greetings Properties, “Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot” will premiere on The Hub in summer 2012.

Today this image was posted on The Hub twitter page, showing the Hub President and CEO Margaret Loesch with Share Bear as they welcome the new Care Bears series “Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot”. Does this mean Share Bear will be featured prominently in the show? Will they be considerably larger than your average adult human as this scale suggests? Not much is known, but The Hub is hoping that this rejuvenated 80s franchise, like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, will have great success! We wish we had more to share, like art, cast and crew information, picture of Grumpy Bear … pretty much anything. We promise that, like Share Bear would want, we will share more information as it comes our way. Here at Powet we’re hoping for another high quality show from the Hub.

If you don’t like Care Bears, that’s cool, but maybe Brave Heart Lion can convince you otherwise.
