* HeyItsThatGuy: Jeff Gordon - television - is a director and producer and storyboard artist for shows such as ''JakersTheAdventuresOfPiggleyWinks'' and ''{{Histeria}}''. Not the same individual as the NASCAR legend.
** The Story Editor in the first episode of ''Welcome to Care-a-Lot'' is no other than Amy Keating Rogers. She is one of the headwritters of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. In fact, Keating Rogers is apparently the staff story editor, as there haven't been any others so far.

* ChannelHop: The franchise's colorful animated history started with Creator/DiCEntertainment animating the early WesternAnimation/CareBears1980s episode, but halfway through the series production changed to Creator/{{Nelvana}}. Then production slowed down until the franchise was canned after blatant mismanagement all but killed it. When the franchise returned, Nelvana resumed production at first with two specials, then the production was shifted over to [=DiC=] again with WesternAnimation/CareBearsAdventuresInCareALot. This did not last, however, as Hasbro then [[ExecutiveMeddling meddled]], fresh from prying the master license out of Play Along Toys' hands, and handing production over to [=MoonScoop=], who went on to produce the equally short-lived WesternAnimation/CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot. [=MoonScoop=] then underwent a takeover, and returned as Splash! Entertainment, who then produced WesternAnimation/CareBearsAndCousins for Netflix.

** The toys have an equally colorful history- they started out being produced by Kenner, lasting through Hasbro's purchase of the brand, but eventually got shelved when blatant mismanagement all but killed the brand. The brand was then sold to Play Along Toys, who managed to nurse it back to health. In late 2007 tho, Hasbro took the brand back, but again mismanaged it. American Greetings was definitely '''not''' pleased, and revoked Hasbro's rights ''again''., this time giving the rights to Just Play Inc.

WesternAnimation/CareBearsAdventuresInCareALot started out being syndicated to Creator/TheCW before ending up on CBS' Kewlopolis slot (and then on Kabillion), and WesternAnimation/CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot started out on The Hub, but then got cancelled, but the reruns as well as it's spinoff sequel WesternAnimation/CareBearsAndCousins are on Netflix.

** The Latin American Spanish versions does this to ''ridiculous'' levels, because not only they switched out voice actors, they also switched voice acting studios and even studios from '' different countries''. Just to give an idea, here is the whole story: The movies (with the exception of the Nutcracker Suite special) and the DiC TV series were dubbed in Mexico (and each movie were dubbed with different voice actors, with the only exception of Tender Heart Bear's VA), the first half of the Nelvana TV series were dubbed in Chile and the second half (when Shreeky appears for first time) was dubbed in Venezuela and the most recent specials and TV series are dubbed in Argentina right now.

* SequelGap: After the Nelvana-produced ''[[WesternAnimation/CareBears1980s Care Bears]]'' series ended in 1988, the franchise went 16 years without an AnimatedAdaptation until 2004's ''Care Bears: Journey to Joke-a-lot''. If their first animated series since 1988 is to be considered, then it's 19 years with ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAdventuresInCareALot'' (2007) closing the gap.

* HeyItsThatVoice: No kidding on this one, since the '80's series got the best voice actors in several animated shows in the 80's/90's while both the 2000 specials and Adventures in Care-A-Lot got {{The Ocean Group}} backing them up. Resulting in:
** Creator/CreeSummer in the first two movies.
** Shreeky's and Baby Hugs' VA voiced SailorMoon at one point.
*** Weird to say that Cheer Bear is also SailorMoon in all three movies.
*** Not to mention that Champ Bear was Sailor Jupiter

*** TheMovie had Creator/CreeSummer and MickeyRooney, whilst the sequel had [[Film/{{Superman}} that kid who fell over Niagara Falls in Superman II]] and Creator/CreeSummer again.
** Dawn is [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Claire Redfield]].
** At one point, Wish Bear was voiced by StephanieBeard.
** Amigo Bear's first voice actor is Creator/VeronicaTaylor.
** Grizzle himself [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED is a clone of Al Da Flaga]].
** This even makes is more unbelievable that Bedtime Bear is a [[MobileSuitGundam00 Super Soldier]].
** Proud Heart Cat, Share Bear and True Heart Bear were all [[BakuganBattleBrawlers Tigrerra]].
** Funshine Bear is a [[DragonBall Super Saiyan]].
*** Bakugan related, the female Funshine Bear is also [[BakuganBattleBrawlers Runo]].
** The 2005 Love-A-Lot Bear is a [[Anime/TenchiMuyo Cabbit who can turn into a Spaceship]].
** Friend Bear is [[WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}} Jean Gray]].
** Moving to the not-so-famous ''Welcome to Care-a-Lot'' cast:
*** Tenderheart Bear is voiced by David Lodge, aka [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Kenpachi Zaraki]]. Definitely PlayingAgainstType.
*** Grumpy Bear and Beastly are voiced by Creator/DougErholtz
*** Share Bear, Secret Bear and Laugh-a-Lot Bear are voiced by StephanieSheh.
*** Funshine Bear and Birthday Bear are voiced by MichaelSinterniklaas.
** AiCAL, being back in the hands of DiC, brought in [=VAs=] from DiC's regular casting agency, Ocean Group, who were also providing casting for the MyLittlePony series since ''My Little Pony Tales'', and most recently for WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic. Hence, we got:
*** [[TabithaStGermain Cheer Bear]] is [[MyLittlePony Minty, Wysteria]], [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rarity, and Princess Luna]].
*** Oopsy Bear is [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Applejack and Rainbow Dash]][[note]]Making the ''Who's a Silly Pony'' meme and the ''Rainbow Crash'' nickname even more HilariousInHindsight[[/note]].
*** [[Creator/AndreaLibman Harmony Bear]] is [[Franchise/MyLittlePony Zipzee, Sweetie Belle]], [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie]].
*** Friend Bear is [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Silver Spoon]].
*** [[Creator/ScottMcNeil Grumpy Bear]] is [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Chief Thunderhooves]].
*** [[Creator/RichardIanCox Bedtime Bear]] is [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Snails]].
*** Wish Bear is [[MyLittlePony Bon Bon]].
*** [[Creator/MattHill Tenderheart Bear]] is [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Soarin']].

*** Best Friend Bear is [[Franchise/MyLittlePony Kimono, Puzzlemint, Sweetberry]], [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Trixie, and Queen Chrysalis]].
*** Laugh-a-Lot Bear is [[MyLittlePony Sunny Daze]].
*** In a more HilariousInHindsight, Funshine Bear's voice actor had a daughter and she voices [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a Cutie Mark Crusader! (Sweetie Belle)]]
** The Japanese Dubs of Journey to Joke-a-Lot to Care Bears to The Rescue has some notable voice actors around, and this time I'm not kidding. This one came straight from the [[http://fukikaemaniax.web.fc2.com/animation/02.html this page]] and I have no idea who were they voicing (Unless someone who can translate Japanese Text figures it out than I do). Now we got AkikoKimura as おもしろベア (Kurousa of SugarBunnies or Megaman.EXE of MegamanBattleNetwork), KoukiMiyata as おこりんぼベア (Yukito of TsubasaChronicle), IsshikiMayu as お願いベア (Azukina of FreshPrettyCure), Creator/AnriKatsu as ごり押しベア (Sendou of DanballSenki), Creator/HarumiSakurai as なかよしベア (AngelBeats), NorikoRikimaru as おすましベア (Manaka of [[ToHeart To Heart 2]]) and SatomiKourogi as 元気ベア (May of GuiltyGear)
*** The only one confirmed in the list is Oopsy Bear, who is voiced by Creator/KumiSakuma (Momo of Manga/{{Bleach}}).
