Join the adorable Care Bear family as they save the Kingdom of Caring from evil in this exciting adventure for the young and young at heart! Filled with music, magic and charm, this full-length feature film goes back in time to introduce the Care Bear Cubs and Care Cousin Cubs and shows how they grew up to become the champions of caring. Set in a peaceful summer camp, evil Dark Heart makes a bargain with an unhappy little girl to trap the Care Bears and destroy goodness. But when she learns thecost of her decision, she realizes that she must race to save them before it is too late. Featuringbeautiful animation and songs by Stephen Bishop and Debbie Allen, CARE BEARS MOVIE II: A NEW GENERATION is a heart-warming adventure for the whole family!
When you're stuck at summer camp with no adult counselor in sight and a fiery, bellowing hurricane named Dark Heart threatens to unleash a storm of evil, it's time to reach for the nearest teddy bear. In the case of Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation, three forlorn campers enlist a whole rainbow of singing, animated bears--and Care Bear Cousins--to learn that making friends and sharing feelings are skills that define true Camp Champs.
Another visual candy dish based on that lucrative pack of American Greeting Cards characters (introduced in the 1980s), this 90-minute film extends many warm, positive messages about caring and sharing. But it suffers from a thick coating of sugary dialogue ("If you have ever cared, care now!"), gooey songs, and exhausting action. Preschool viewers deserve healthier doses of similar yet superior fare, like Dragon Tales or Bear in the Big Blue House. --Liane Thomas

I found the original Care Bears Movie at my local Target for less than $5.. That's cheap enough for me to say "Hey I'll grab it for myself and watch it when my three year old goes down for a nap." When I get it home, he see's the cover and instantly wants to see what cartoon I've brought home. He was hooked! We watched it almost 6 times a day for nearly 3 weeks! So I had to order this movie and the 4-Feature Set!
So I just got them today, just finished watching this movie with my son and, even though I haven't seen it in at least 20 years, I remembered nearly every word to every fun song. The people giving this movie less than 4 and 5 star reviews either grew up with very sheltering parents who thought watching television was a sin, weren't allowed to have wire hangers in their closets, or just plain old have no respect for classic television that, in reality, mixed a boat-load of moral messages into their story-lines!
Keep in mind, people, that the Care Bears began as characters on a greeting card. Then they released the stuffed toys, and to better advertise and gain a real fan base for those things, they created a relatively cheap, but fun, television show along with some classic movies. Also, these things were so well loved that great, classic voice-talents such as Billie Mae Richards (Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer 1964) and Cree Summer (voice of Penny on the classic Inspector Gadget 1983 cartoons, best-selling video games like Batman Arkham Asylum, and countless other childrens cartoons dated up to even the most recent versions of Looney Tunes and Thundercats) both did voices for the Care Bears cartoons and movies.
Although this movie is super cute, the songs just arent as catchy as the first. And some other characters are in it that werent released in US (harmony bear, true heart, nobel heart horse), which landed me in a frenzy when i first watched the movie as a kid.
Definently not as good as the first but if you are a true fan, you can put aside those issues and happily welcome this friendly film into your collection, happy viewing!
