I grew up with the Care Bears, and I thought they were great! I really liked watching their show, and playing with the animals! I think it is fun that they are back for my kids to enjoy! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has come out with a great 3-pack collection of Care Bear movies in one set called, "Care Bears Flurries of Fun!" that just came out on Tuesday, October 7th! This 3 pack collection includes: “Care Bears Oopsy Does It,” “Care Bears Grizzle-ly Adventures” and “Care Bears Ups and Downs." I really think that these videos are fun for younger kids. The movies have good lessons that are taught, and put in a fun cartoon-way. You know they must be good when my little girl asks to watch bears! She is only 19 months old.
Here is a little synopsis of the DVD's:
“Care Bears: Grizzle-ly Adventures” presents two episodes featuring the new bear in the Care Bear’s neighborhood—Grizzle. He’s a mean little bear in a big robot suit who hates caring. In “Broken,” when Share Bear’s favorite necklace is needed to fix her robot friend, Wingnut. Share keeps the necklace and goes to Grizzle instead. This is a test to the Care Bears to see if they can trust Grizzle. “Emma’s Dilemma” things are missing all over Care-a-lot. The Care Bears let Emma help them search, but she ends up missing, too, thanks to Grizzle. Can Emma and the bears find a way out of his trap? This DVD is Caleb's first choice when we watch the movies.
“Care Bears Oopsy Bear Does It,” Oopsy Bear is the only Care Bear without a belly badge. When Cheer and Grumpy Bear build an amusement park for their friends, Oopsy Bear accidentally destroys it. Grizzle, an evil bear, uses Oopsy’s mistake in a plot to steal the Care Bears’ belly badges. But, Oopsy stumbles to the rescue proving you don’t need a badge to be a bear who cares.
“Care Bears Ups and Downs” also features two episodes “Cheer Up," and “Down to Earth.” In “Cheer Up,” Cheer Bear decides to throw a party for Surprise. But she becomes uncheery when Surprise turns out to be not surprised. So she distracts Surprise with “tasks” like picking flowers, hopping through town on one foot, and doing everything in reverse, so that the Bears can plan the party. There is a real surprise in the end, though! In “Down To Earth,” Wingnut’s Care Bear Transporter beams Funshine to Earth so he can teach a lonely young boy how to make friends and have fun. But then the Care Bear Transporter breaks… and unless Wingnut can fix it, Funshine won’t be able to return to Care-a-Lot!
TOTAL RUNNING TIME for these DVD's is 160 minutes.
