** 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 we're 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.

* LongRunners: Since its launch in 1981, is over thirty years old if one doesn't count in the hiatuses the franchise took. Even if one did count in the hiatus, the one hiatus starting in 1993 through 2001 and another from 2008 through 2012 totaled 12 years, still leaving the franchise's "active" periods with a span of a little over 20 years.



* ShortRunner: While the franchise itself is a LongRunner of over 30 years of age, Certain incarnations of the franchise, notably ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAdventuresInCareALot'' and ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot'', are this due to ExecutiveMeddling.

They're one of the most spoofed of TheEighties toy lines because of their [[Main/TastesLikeDiabetes overly sugary reputation]] -- which is not wholly deserved when one takes [[VileVillainSaccharineShow some of their villains]] and plotlines into account. On the other hand, they're still quite popular. In 2000, the characters were relaunched with a toy revival and two direct-to-video animated films. In 2007, a redesigned line of the toys arrived along with another DTV film and a Saturday morning series on Creator/{{CBS}}, ''Care Bears -- Adventures in Care-A-Lot''. ''Adventures in Care-A-Lot'' is out of production, but the character line launched with the ''Oopsy Does It'' continued with films such as ''Share Bear Shines'' and ''The Giving Festival''.

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]], ''Care Bears and Cousins''. 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''.

Added DiffLines:

* MonochromeToColor: The Care Bears once found themselves in a place called Drab City, a dull, [[DeliberatelyMonochrome gray]] place where something is draining the life (and color) out of the citizens, leaving them uncaring and apathetic. As the Care Bears spend more time, there, they begin to be affected by it as well, until they finally find the cause, some kind of strange meteor. Once they get rid of it, the color instantly returns along with all the life and feelings.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtEvolution: The designs for the Care Bears and Care Bear Cousins looked a bit different in there book appearances (Pre DIC and Nelvana) and there eyes were much smaller.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.
