The Care Bears Movie

Continuity mistake: Right when Love-a-Lot Bear calls attention to Bedtime Bear falling overboard, Tenderheart is seen navigating the cloud clipper. Take a look at his steering wheel, which is mounted in front of the pedestal. A few moments later when a whirlpool strikes, the wheel spins out of control; but now it happens to be fastened behind the pedestal. (00:35:50)

Continuity mistake: Inside the trailer where Nicholas gets chastised for spilling the magic trunk's contents, notice how Fetuccini is wearing two white gloves.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Playful Heart Monkey compares Kim and Jason's characteristics to those of lions with haircuts, Friend Bear is shown leaning on Secret Bear.

Continuity mistake: As the camera zooms in on a heart-shaped table where all of the Care Bears and Cousins are seated listening to Tenderheart speak, Braveheart Lion (immediate left) is shown cradling Baby Tugs with his right arm and Baby Hugs with his left. But somehow each cub has swapped over to the opposite arm in the following shot. (01:07:05)

Continuity mistake: Once Tenderheart Bear releases himself from the cage, he grabs a key and starts towards the tent where Nicholas will soon cast an evil spell upon the audience. A couple of empty benches are visible inside, but in the following shot - from within the tent - children are now seated at every one. (00:18:45)

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas casts an evil spell on his audience in the tent, Tenderheart jumps on stage to reason with him. Notice how the stage's floorboards are installed lengthwise.

Continuity mistake: When Baby Hugs and Tugs are standing by the rainbow rescue beam's control panel watching the platform, notice how the heart floor tiles are quite large. In fact, the control panel and each baby cub are able to fit on just one of them. But when Grumpy Bear runs over to the panel and starts pressing buttons a moment later, all of the tiles have now shrunk considerably in size. (00:11:30)

Continuity mistake: After Tenderheart Bear jumps from the cage, he sees the evil spirit's gold key lying halfway between two floorboards near his right foot. But in the next shot this key is located in a different spot on the floor - beside four nail heads which weren't previously there. (00:18:35)

Continuity mistake: Braveheart Lion's orange tail has a tassel on the end of it which is noticeable throughout the movie. However in one scene when the Care Bear family is lined up and exiting the Hall of Hearts, Secret Bear shouts "Yeah!" and causes everybody to tumble like dominoes. At the front of the line, Braveheart is seen rising to his feet; but notice how the tassel is now missing. (00:27:55 - 01:08:35)

Continuity mistake: During the opening song, Secret Bear and Friend Bear are getting ready to take off for Earth in a cloud mobile when they're halted by the star buddy traffic controller blowing a whistle. As soon as Champ Bear flies by in his rainbow roller, the star buddy signals for the other two bears to proceed; but suddenly the whistle is missing in the following shot. (00:03:45)

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, Friend and Secret Bear are walking down a trail in the park trying to get Kim and Jason's attention. At first they aren't successful, so they stop for a moment. Here we can see grass and several trees & shrubs next to Secret Bear, but in the next shot a trash container is suddenly visible beside him, too. (00:05:40)

Continuity mistake: When Swift Heart Rabbit taunts the evil spirit's tree, a large vine with four fingers swings around to chase her. After she circles the first branch a moment later, the same vine is shown having only three fingers. (00:41:25)

Continuity mistake: The moment Nicholas is ready to cast his final spell, several Care Bears roll into the castle on a line of carts, all of which display an emblem up front. Once the bears are thrown into the carts and start rolling away, the emblems have vanished (most particularly the first cart where Tenderheart sits). (00:59:40 - 01:00:45)

Continuity mistake: After unlocking the evil spirit's book, Nicholas gets thrown to the wall. Notice that a key rests by his left hand as he sits on the floor. But as he rises to his feet a few shots later, the key is no longer there. (00:16:10)

Continuity mistake: While Braveheart Lion is holding Baby Hugs and Tugs at the Care Bear Cousin inauguration ceremony, they separate a party popper which scatters confetti and a hat. The hat, landing on Braveheart's nose, has two red stripes. When Baby Tugs removes the hat, notice that it now has two additional red stripes. (01:07:10)

Continuity mistake: When Playful Heart Monkey climbs the tree during "Home Is In Your Heart," he has a small red heart on his right side. But as he swings from a limb in the next shot, this heart briefly appears on his left side. (00:30:40)

Continuity mistake: During "In a Care Bear Family," everybody is shown seated at the heart-shaped table with bowls, spoons and cups. But watch how all of this tableware briefly vanishes as soon as Tenderheart Bear approaches the table. (01:07:05)

Continuity mistake: When Friend and Secret Bear meet Kim and Jason in the park, everybody is shown standing on a trail. But as Friend Bear begins to talk with the kids about hopes and dreams, she proceeds down the trail to catch up with them and, in the next shot, is seen walking on grass instead. (00:06:00)

Continuity mistake: While Kim and Jason are playing leap frog with the Care Bears, Wish Bear appears on top of a rainbow shouting about some great news. Notice how she's carrying a star-o-scope and the objective lens is that of a red star. Moments later when Wish Bear is on the clouds beside the rainbow, her scope only has a small red heart for a lens. (00:20:40)

Continuity mistake: When the Care Bears boat begins to be pulled into the whirlpool, made by the evil spirit fish, one of the bears grabs a rope and sends a special star into the sky to help them, attached to the rope. The bear then picks the end of the rope up, and begins to tie it to the mast. In the next shot you can see the end of the rope still laying on the floor again, unattatched to the mast, the in the next shot it's back on the mast again.
