What I remember about the Care Bears:
The Care Bears are an 80's show. I was quite
young then, so I can't remember much, but I do remember what much this cartoon
taught me: To love, care and share.
There are a number of bears groups. In
Singapore, they only aired episodes consisting of the Care Bears, and the Care
Bear cousins. Or so as I can recall.
Without further ado, here are the Care Bears:
Original 16 Care Bears:
Symbol: Red Heart
Trait: Tenderheart is a true friend. He cares deeply for everyone and
listens carefully to any of your problems. When ever you need a hug or
need to know that someone cares, Tenderheart will be there for you. He
understands that sometimes people feel lonely and needs help to express
their feelings and he does his best in making you feel good so those
feelings fade away and only love and tenderness remains.

Symbol: Smiley Sun
Trait: Ever have those days when things don't feel right? Well, Funshine
is here to help! She has a bright outlook on everything and will help
you see how bright and sunny the day is so all those gloomy thoughts
will disappear -- even when it's a cloudy day!
|Colour: Grey Blue
Symbol: Raincloud with hearts as raindrops
Trait:Grumpy completely understands when you have a bad day and things
aren't going you're way. It just seems like everything is piling up on
you and there's nothing you can do but get mad. But never fear, Grumpy
totally understands. He's here to listen to you and have a good grump--
everyone needs to have a grump sometime! Sticking with Grumpy will make
you feel so much better than bottling those bad emotions inside.

Love-a-Lot likes to think! She knows that there is a special someone you
care about and she helps you find them! She knows how good it feels to
be loved by another and spreads love around so everyone feels good about
themselves everyday with love by their side.

something bright that will definetly make you smile too.

Trait: Why is Bedtime Bear always asleep? Don't think that he's a lazy
bear, he's not! Bedtime works very hard when all the other bears are
asleep -- and you too! He keeps an eye out at night to make sure you are
safe from nightmares and scarey mosters that live under you're bed. And
in all that time, he also takes care of his fellow bears as they sleep
to take care of you during the day.
