Classic Care Bears Episode to Air on Teletoon Retro Canada
Canadian viewers who are disappointed with or just plain dislike the look of the upcoming CG Care Bears series will be glad to know that they can simply rewatch the original 80s cartoons on Teletoon Retro: under a newly signed broadcast deal between American Greetings Properties and Teletoon Retro Canada, Care Bears Classic will be airing on the channel in both English and French Dubs.
Originally created by American Greetings in 1981 for use on greeting cards, the Care Bears are a group of cuddly bears that have their own specific color and specialized belly insignia, signifying their duty and personality. The property was picked up in 1983 by Kenner and turned into plush teddy bears, followed by a series of TV specials in 1983, until the bears got their own regular TV series, which ran from 1985 to 1988. The Care Bears property is still going strong today, with a modern update of the TV series currently under production.
