* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the earlier days of the franchise (Mainly in the books made before the animated special and TV series were created) the Care Bears and Care Bear Cousins used to fly away back from a person's home and enter by a rainbow through a window before Cloud Cars were ever though of. This concept wasn't introduced to the franchise until the DIC animated series. The Care Bear Stare also wasn't used by the characters until the first animated special which introduced Professor Cold Heart.

On June 2, 2012, TheHub premiered a new series called ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot'', which unfortunately [[ScrewedByTheNetwork ended up on the chopping board]] when The Hub changed hands to Discovery Family in October 2014. This possibly occurred because Hasbro neglected the franchise and ended up losing the master license rights to a company called ''Just Play.''[[note]]Hasbro obtained the license in late 2007 along with WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake, but it wasn't until 2012 that the show started airing, and it wasn't until mid-2013 that toys started appearing, which probably displeased American Greetings.[[/note]] However, [[NetworkToTheRescue Netflix commissioned a new show]], ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAndCousins''. Initially announced for 2016, the show was rushed to production and premiered with six episodes in November 2015 instead. The series is in many ways a continuation of ''Welcome to Care-a-Lot''. It features the same visual style and is clearly set in the same continuity, but adds the Care Bear Cousins and features a much larger role for the young cub character of Wonderheart Bear that was introduced in ''Welcome to Care-a-Lot''.

* GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul: The Care Bear Stare had this effect in the DiC, to somewhat disturbing results. It was toned back into an all purpose weapon against evil in the Nelvana series before returning to its roots in ''Adventures In Care-A-Lot''.

** Also, Professor Coldheart and Frostbite up and vanished after the 80s series moved production from [=DiC=] to Nelvana; [=DiC=] created them, so [[ScrewedByTheLawyers they couldn't be used]] (and they weren't brought back when [=DiC=] regained the rights later on).



** The cousins got this big time in the '00s revival, where they would only be seen in books, some plush toys, and hardly got mentioned on the official website. They also were absent from WesternAnimation/CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot, WesternAnimation/CareBearsAdventuresInCareALot and the two CGI films. They finally made a proper return with a new Care Bears series, ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAndCousins'', in late 2015 on Netflix.
