Western Animation: The Care Bears Movie
"Care-a-lot is a place we all can go
Whenever we choose it
Care-a-lot is a feeling we all know
We never do lose it"

The Care Bears Movie is the first theatrical film in the Care Bears franchise.

The story is told in a flashback about three lonely orphan kids: the siblings Kim and Jason, who are helped by the Care Bears, and an older boy named Nicholas, tempted by an evil, sentient book.

The book gives Nicholas magical powers, and then convinces him to turn everyone he sees into hateful people. This damages Care-a-lot, causing earthquakes and threatening to destroy it all. Kim, Jason, and the Care Bears have to go and stop what's happening. Their quest gets sidetracked when they are forced to go to another land, which turns out to be the home of the Care Bear Cousins. In case you noticed watching the film, it is significantly the darkest of the trilogy: a spell book with a hauntingly green face that seems to be prefer the world in heavily implied global anarchy rather than just plain Jerkassry towards one's fellow man, eerie rides and a crazed eyed possessed sorcerer wannabe. Even the soundtrack can be threatening at times.

This film was a modest success, but immensely profitable for American Greetings, and led to two more Care Bears sequels and a TV series.
