Storyline

In this second installment to the original Care Bear Movie trilogy of the 1980s, the Care Bear Family goes on their first Caring Mission--to stop the evil doings of a demon villain, named Dark Heart, from taking over a summer camp while making the Bears and Cousins vanish forever. In exchange for the Family's capture, he gives a camper named Christy the chance to succeed as the "Camp Champ" over her so-named rival. While starting the Kingdom of Caring, its founders (True Heart Bear and Noble Heart Horse) will stop at nothing to end the wrath of the Bears' first villain. Christy's friends, Dawn and John, and the rest of the Family join them in doing so. Narrating the tale is the Great Wishing Star (voiced by Chris Wiggins), who also helps True Heart and Noble Heart start the Kingdom, as both of them take care of the little orphan Cubs.

Trivia

Between the generally acclaimed The Care Bears Movie (1985) and the somewhat abandoned The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland (1987), this movie has gained more negative response by critics due to the twist of how the Care Bears and their cousins met as shown on The Care Bears Movie and some of its key elements received comparisons to the German legend Faust and J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan, as well as the scary contents linking onto a children's movie. Even some parents regarded this film as being "too frightening for their children". See more »

Goofs

Quotes

True Heart Bear: Well, Noble Heart, even though we found no trace of Dark Heart or Christy, I'd say this wasn't a wasted trip to Earth.
Noble Heart Horse: Indeed not, True Heart. We left two children who weren't good at anything...
True Heart Bear: And have returned to find two world-class baby-sitting champions in their place.

Pathetic excuse for a Care Bears sequel
23 February 2000 | by hchooverSee all my reviews

What were they thinking? The creators of this film obviously had never even seen the original. This film is a sorry excuse for a Care Bears sequel. It contradicts most of what happened in the first movie, and really treats it's audience like children... children don't want to be talked down to in films, and adults would really get tired of this film in the first five minutes. The writers tried to include a Disney-ish wit in this film, but they ended up making the whole film a joke. The only good thing about this film is the music- Dean Parks is a well-know studio guitarist who laid down many tracks in the 70's and 80's for big names like Billy Joel and Barry Manilow. Unfortunately some of the songs do drag, but this movie does have it's share of good songs. The Voice talent is excellent too, Maxine Miller does a terrific job with Truheart Bear. Nelvana is a wonderful animation studio, they had all kinds of talent that went into this project, yet they produced such an awful film, I can't figure it out.
