Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot first impressions

Care Bears Welcome to Care-a-Lot - Compassion -- Not! - Beastly and Grumpy Bear

After hyping up this new show for weeks the premiere came and went without any comment. Why, you might wonder? Well as a Canadian I do not have access to the Hub, but fear not as the “first” episode of Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot is now available for viewing online at the hub’s web site, for a limited time, to people who live in the US. I found the show decent, with some nice animation, some nice characters and a few good jokes, but ultimately probably too juvenile to find a home with adult fans.

Care Bears Welcome to Care-a-Lot - Compassion -- Not! - Penny arrives in Care-a-Lot

One thing to note is that this was in fact not the first episode. This is episode 5 “Compassion — NOT!”. Why start with episode 5? I can’t pretend to understand the thought process of network executives. Perhaps this was a stronger episode they thought would hook more fans? All I know is that it not being the first episode was a bit annoying. From one of the preview clips we knew that “Care Kids” were transported to Care-a-Lot via a “Care and Share Charm”. This information would have been helpful to tell audiences in this episode, instead a girl named Penny is brought in by a rainbow and seems very unsurprised to be transported to this magical world of talking Bears who she’s meeting for the first time. Her acceptance of this incredible situation is something I can only compare to the unsurprised reaction of various characters from Megaman Upon a Star when Megaman enters the real world from the video game world. Another annoying situations is that Wonderheart Bear clearly has a belly badge, although a plot point of the first episode will obviously be her getting one.

Care Bears: Welcome to Care-A-Lot Theme Song

Care Bears: Welcome to Care-A-Lot - Grumpy Bear

Here’s what appears to be the theme song for the new Care Bears: Welcome to Care-A-Lot cartoon:

The song can be found on the American Greetings web site playing with the new “Care Bears Cheers For All!” game. The video from the clip above was added separately from other footage. An instrumental version of the tune can also be heard in the background of many of the videos that showed up recently introducing the cast of the new Welcome to Care-A-Lot series. It stands to reason this is the theme song for the show, but there has been no specific confirmation of this. We’ll know for sure come June 2nd at 8am when the show premieres on the Hub. How do you like the new theme song?

Check out the Care Bears section of the Hub web site for some new wallpapers and other cool stuff. I’ve included images of some of those below.

Meet the Care Bears from the new series

"Care Bear Stare" billboard for Care Bears on The Hub June 2nd

The new Care Bears series “Welcome to Care-A-Lot”, which will premiere June 2nd, is a bit over two weeks away and the Hub and American Greetings are busy advertising. A huge Care Bears billboard sporting the words “Care Bear Stare” can now be seen in Los Angeles, in the same location that many popular My Little Pony billboard have been posted.

In addition to this a number of videos introducing various Care Bears are now online on the American Greetings web site. Check out videos to introduce Cheer Bear, Funshine Bear, Grumpy Bear, Harmony Bear, Share Bear, Tenderheart Bear and Wonderheart Bear.

Grumpy Bear makes the best of a bad situation

So who’s your favourite bear to date? Grumpy Bear seems promising, with his carry all which seems something like Batman’s utility belt. It should be noted that Funshine Bear is male in this show. Though female in the original Care Bears cartoon, Funshine Bear’s sex has changed in later series.

New Care Bears series commercial, promotional art and more

Care Bears Welcome to Care-A-Lot - Tenderheart Bear and Wonderheart Bear

Commercials for the Hub’s new series Care Bears: Welcome to Care-A-Lot have been running on the network for a few weeks now. The trailer, seen below, and some of the promotional images that we’ve gotten from the Hub give us a good idea of how the show will look. On top of the Care Bear cast of the show is a human girl character who is not named, as well as a new Care Bear who has no “belly-badge” at some moments. According to information from Parade Magazine, this new character is named Wonderheart Bear.

The show is set to begin airing in a month with the premiere episode playing on Saturday June 2nd at 8am. Well have more information on this show as we learn it. For now, what do you think of the trailer? Does the show look like it will be worth watching?

First look at the new Care Bears series

The cast of the new Care Bears TV series: Harmony Bear, Funshine Bear, Grumpy Bear, Share Bear, Tenderheart Bear and Cheer Bear

Last week we brought news of a new Care Bears series, Welcome to Care-a-Lot. Now we’ve got a first look at what the show will look like. We learned previously that the show would be CGI animated which is confirmed by these images. From the group shot we get an idea of the cast of the show, included are from left to right, Harmony Bear, Funshine Bear, Grumpy Bear, Share Bear, Tenderheart Bear and Cheer Bear. From other promotional material it looks like perhaps Share Bear and Cheer Bear may be more prominently featured than other characters.

New Care Bears series “Welcome to Care-a-Lot” coming to the Hub this summer

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 propertys 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! Its 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.
