CARE BEARS: The Original Series Collection coming to DVD...

Written by

After absolutely falling in love with the CARE BEARS upon the release of their latest series, WELCOME TO CARE-A-LOT (currently airing Saturday mornings on The Hub), my daughter soon demanded "more Care Bears." Dipping into the archives here at Rock Father HQ, I introduced her to the 'Bears that I grew up with via 1985's THE CARE BEAR MOVIE. Though the difference in animation and storytelling is drastically different, my little one found herself equally enthalled with what she now calls "80's Care Bears." On October 9th, that world is going to crack wide open.

carebearsdvd300To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the popular characters from American Greetings, Lionsgate will release CARE BEARS: THE ORIGINAL SERIES COLLECTION, a limited-editon, 6-disc DVD set, featuring 64 episodes and a full-length movie. 

From the official announcement: "The lovable bears of Care-a-lot – Cheer Bear, Share Bear, Harmony Bear and all their buddies – with unique belly badges and a caring mission – have been delighting fans for 30 years! Whether it’s learning the value of friendship, helping someone in need or using their special powers to brighten up the day, the adorable Care Bears are always ready for caring, sharing and giving goodness!"
