If you are like me, just the simple mention of Care Bears makes you smile. It brings back memories from my youth where the “care bear stare” could right any wrong. I was so excited when my daughter started getting interested in them as it is much easier to stomach an interest I, myself, share (bear).
Mystery In Care-A-Lot Halloween DVD
Enter the newly released Care Bears: Mystery in Care-A-Lot DVD featuring three mystery themed episodes chock full of friendship and good cheer, and right in time for Halloween. In this delightful collection – that kids and their families will love – the Bears show the power of caring and sharing as they transform bad dreams into sweet ones, solve the mystery of the legendary Scare Bear, and save Care-a-Lot from turning into Grump-a-Lot! This DVD is for you if you agree that this time of year brings a challenge to find sweet, non-scary Halloween entertainment for kids too young to appreciate the scary face from Scream.
This face is scarier than the face from Scream.
While I enjoyed “Nightbears” and “Sleuth of Bears”, my favorite episode by far was “Welcome to Grump-A-Lot”. From the first scene that includes BBQ’d pigs in a blanket to Grumpy bear’s use of solar panels for his tv, this episode had me smiling.
Who among us has not had a day (or decade) where they can identify with grumpy bear? But this episode has a nice twist where after a grumpy storm hits an alternative grumpy universe takes over in Care-A-Lot and reshapes Grumpy bear view of himself.
Much like the movie whose title I can’t think of, after a big storm, Grumpy bear wakes up in an alternate universe where not just him but everyone is grumpy. All his cheerful Care Bear friends harrumph about giving him the grumptastic treatment he usually dishes out. As the episode unfolds he sees from his mistakes and realizes being grumpy all the time isn’t the best option. He sees the light and turns his grump-infested friends back to their smiles one by one. He learns that while we all get frustrated, we must all learn to control our emotions.
Two non-Grumpy Share Bear snugglers
By far my favorite line of the whole episode was “In grump do not wallow & color will follow”. Isn’t that a great line? Thinking broader than Care Bears, no matter how old you are, think for a few moments about this line. It’s really good advice, right? I love having an “AHA!” moment in the last place I would expect (I miss Oprah).
