Spring is in the air and friendship is in bloom!
The rebooted Care Bears blast out some syrupy love from their furry underside, in eight episodes focusing on friendship and sliding down rainbows on their butts.
• "Growing Pains"
• "King Grumpy"
• "Cheer, There and Everywhere"
• "Case of the Grumpies"
• "Two of a Kind"
• "Stand Up and Cheer"
It's the Care Bears. What more do you need to know? They're relentlessly happy (except for Grumpy, who probably should have been exiled form Care-a-Lot years ago) and often make mistakes but luckily they're friends and can resolve any issue within the allotted eight minutes. It's low-impact stuff, but the morals are spelled out clearly and the animation is bright and saccharine. The kiddos should dig it.
The DVD autoplays all eight episodes (full frame, 2.0 stereo) or you can work out of the main menu for episode selection or a badge match interactive game.
What do I care? Not guilty.
