It really is hard to believe that the Care Bears first debuted over 40 years ago. Over that time these lovable furry bears have appeared in movies, TV shows, and seemingly endless merchandise while still maintaining their endearing message of love and compassion.
They were created back in 1981 by American Greetings. Early characters included, Bedtime Bear, Cheer Bear, Funshine Bear, Friend Bear, Good Luck Bear, Grumpy Bear, Love-a-Lot Bear, Tenderheart Bear, and Wish Bear.
They very quickly became popular with children and adults of all ages who loved their colorful soft fur and character tummy symbols.
Our furry friends the Care Bears made their big screen debut in 1985 with their first feature-length movie imaginatively titled The Care Bears Movie. The movie was an inevitable success and brought us two sequels and a new TV series that took to the screens between 1985 to 1988.
Later the Care Bears enjoyed a resurgence of popularity off the back of a new TV series. There were also a number of direct-to-video movies that were released taking advantage of the VHS trend and the new DVD technology.
Coming up to date the Care Bears have featured in mobile games along with more TV episodes. They continue to evolve with the ever-changing times. They are as popular as ever.
These Care Bears 40th Anniversary Funko Pops help to cement their place in the hearts of their fans making the world a little bit brighter.
