* 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.

* SequelGap: After NamesTheSame: Within the Nelvana-produced ''[[WesternAnimation/CareBears1980s franchise, the 1983 album ''The Care Bears]]'' series ended in 1988, Bears Adventures In Care-a-Lot'' and the franchise went 16 years without an AnimatedAdaptation until 2004's ''Care Bears: Journey to Joke-a-lot''. If their first 2007 animated series since 1988 is to be considered, then ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAdventuresInCareALot''.
* NoExportForYou: Oddly enough, Japan only got the second movie (''A New Generation'') of the original movie trilogy and ''none'' of the animated series until the 2000's direct-to-video specials. Taking into account the Japanese (and mostly East Asian) taste for anything cute and cuddly,
it's 19 years with ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAdventuresInCareALot'' (2007) closing really odd that the gap.franchise skipped those audiences for many years.
** Given that American Greetings actually have a child company running in Malaysia (Memory Lane), it's especially weird that Care Bears merchandise has been ridiculously hard to get in the country. [=AiCAL=] was introduced very late into the franchise' life, aired only once on Cartoon Network (same as WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake: Berry Bitty Adventures), and the DVD release is a case of BadExportForYou in that the two episodes that made up the Down to Earth special was never released, and [=WtCAL=] was only available on Boomerang in Asia, which is not available in Malaysia (and since the shutdown of the South East Asian feed, not available anywhere in South East Asia). Also, [=AiCAL=] era merch were not available in the country, and the only [=WtCAL=] merch available in the country are toddler clothing- for some reason, the other merchandises are still stuck in the 1980s era designs.

** ''Sort'' of. Billie Mae Richards, the voice of Tender Heart Bear in the first two films and the DIC TV series, and Jim Henshaw, the voice of Bright Heart Raccoon in the first two films, had their roles switched in the Nelvana TV series.

* HeyItsThatVoice.CareBears



* 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.
