Random Trivia For This Title:

  • True Heart Bear and Noble Heart Horse were the only Care Bear and Care Bear Cousin that didn't make an appearance in this movie.
  • 'Weird Al' Yankovic mentions this movie in his original song, {You Make Me}, which is a track on his 1988 album, [Even Worse].
  • The Care Bears Movie grossed almost $23 million at the American box-office, making it the most successful animated production outside the Disney market at the time of its release, and Nelvana's highest-grossing film for another eight years.
  • First movie to be based directly on a toy line.
  • While many of the spells that Nicholas uses are obviously made up words, one word he does use when casting a spell on his mentor to put him to sleep is 'ishkabibble'. This was actually a very popular American slang term for about 20 years or so starting around 1913 and means, appropriately enough, 'Who cares'.
  • The only word Secret Bear says aloud during the whole movie is "Yeah!" shouted during the final song.
