Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this straight-to-DVD title is a light, harmless romp that doesn't offer much substance to its target audience of young viewers. But it does offer plenty of related merchandise. A version of this DVD actually comes with a plush Care Bear toy and these American Greetings-owned Care Bear characters are also back on TV. The villain character will probably not scare youngsters, but preliminary scenes of his "Care Taker" machine may. A Spanish-speaking addition to the Care Bear fold, Amigo Bear, makes his debut.
The villain is indeed threatening, but his weapon of destruction is an amusement park ride that painlessly removes Care Bear belly badges.
Lots of emphasis on teamwork, not giving up, and maintaining a positive attitude.
Most versions come packaged with a plush Care Bear. Since the movie is a spin-off of a very successful toy line, it's impossible to avoid commercialism. Grizzle is intent in collecting unique Care Bears and kids might be, too.
