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.

* LongRunner: Since it's 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.

** Taken UpToEleven in ''[[CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot Welcome to Care-a-Lot]]'' where the Care Bears don't even bother to hide when they're annoyed with one another. In on particular episode, Share Bear messed up a special drink, causing the other bears' fur to change colours and patterns. the resident Diva, Harmony Bear, instantly throws "THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!" at her. Wonderheart, within the same series, is brutally honest with her feelings. this is actually a very useful aesop for young children.

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 2008 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''.

** 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.
