I was a stuffed animal addict as a kid. With hundreds of plush friends, my mom had to build an extra row of shelves around my room to house my ever-expanding collection which, as a child of the 80s, naturally included several Care Bears. It’s hard to believe that Tenderheart, Funshine, Grumpy and the other Bears made their debut 30 years ago, and now they’re making their return to TV in The Hub’s all-new series Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot on Saturday, June 2, at 8am ET.
The half-hour series will take viewers to Care-a-lot and include everyone’s favorites as well as a new, younger addition to the group: Wonderheart Bear. You can check out a preview of the show below and get Care Bears games and activities online. Personally, I can’t wait to teach my niece the Care Bear Stare.
