Journey to Joke A Lot
To accompany the release of the new toys, Canadian company, Nelvana, released two new CGI movies. The animation went away from the 2-D hand drawn
cartoons from the 1980's that were being sold with the plush toys. The CGI animation put the bears in 3-D worlds with bright colors and intricate
scenery. The animation on the Bears, however, left many older fans from the 1980's very disappointed with the design.
In 2007, with the redesign of the Bears, came several additional movies in the 3-D, CGI style but with the skinnier version of the Bears. The movies where produced by SD Entertainment and DiC Entertainment.
