The Care Bears are cuddly, adorable little bears with special pictures on their tummies.
They live in a pretty, magical world of clouds and rainbows called Care-a-Lot.
They have always watched over the feelings of children everywhere.
One day the Care Bears noticed that the world wasn't as pretty as it used to be. The air smelled funny and the water wasn't as clear as before. They quickly saw what was wrong. Oceans, trees, mountains, animals, streams, and even the air was being ruined by Carelessness.
The Care Bears decided to help. Each Bear chose something in our world to care about. Then with their Care Bear Stare, they even changed the pictures on their tummies to show what they cared about. Let's see what they look like now!
