Everyone loves trivia about their favorite animated features and series, but with over 100 years of animation history behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

This week we’re focusing our Care Bear stare on those cuddly denizens of Care-a-lot, the Care Bears! Debuting in the early 1980s as characters for greeting cards and plush toys, the Care Bears soon made their way first to televised specials, then a regular series, then a number of theatrical films. The franchise has been rebooted a few times since its 1980s heyday, with each iteration featuring new films, specials, or series. This video takes a look at the history of the franchise from its conception and development through its various relaunches to its various comics adaptations.
