Look at Eric◊, then compare him to Jason◊. They look very identical to each other, the difference being that Jason has no freckles (and neither does Kim, for that matter). And it almost makes sense for Eric to have been Jason and Kim's dad; the 1991 adaptation seemed to be set between the 1930s and the 1940s (maybe after WWII ended?), while The Care Bears Movie was released in 1985.
