The Care Bears Movie

Continuity mistake: When the cloud clipper is rising from beneath the river, a dozen Care Bears are lined up watching nearby. Notice Love-a-Lot Bear standing between Grumpy and Cheer Bear. In this shot, her tummy symbol consists of a pink heart on the left and a red heart on the right. But when she's walking aboard the clipper, the hearts have switched positions.

Continuity mistake: During the first cloud quake on Care-a-Lot, Grams Bear is seen escaping from the Hall of Hearts on a rainbow walkway. In the next shot she turns around and heads back indoors, but now the colors beneath her feet are running in the opposite direction (as though the walkway changed its position).

Continuity mistake: After a second cloud quake wreaks havoc on Care-a-Lot, the scene changes to a close-up of the castle. Inside, Nicholas is shown running over to a podium with a closed book in his hands. He sets it down; but in the next shot where he turns around to speak into a boiling cauldron, the book is now opened up. Only once, but with immense effort, does this book get closed throughout the entire movie (excepting this shot, which appears to have slipped through the cracks).

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas is busy picking up pieces from Fetuccini's magic trunk inside the trailer, the evil spirit's book - wrapped in a blue & yellow cloth and fastened with a red seal - suddenly slips from the trunk and onto the floor. When he reaches out to lift up the book and place it upon a desk, note now the trailer's floorboards are running lengthwise. As the red seal melts away, the floor is partially visible below the desk. But notice how the boards are now running in the opposite direction.

Continuity mistake: When Cozy Heart Penguin realizes that the cloud clipper has been seized by a whirlpool, Love-a-Lot and Funshine Bear grab on to the starboard side. Beneath the surface is the evil spirit's fish, churning the water. Once it stops swimming around, two subsequent overhead shot of the cloud clipper suddenly reveal a couple of different Care Bears on the starboard side.

Continuity mistake: When Baby Hugs and Tugs are sitting on Braveheart's lap as Tenderheart makes an announcement, each cub is shown with a symbol on the white fur of their tummies. But a few shots later, Baby Tugs is drawn without a symbol. As a matter of fact, his entire tummy is now drawn completely blue instead of white.

Continuity mistake: In the shot of Fetuccini completing a house of cards, his vest is fastened with two gold buttons. But soon Nicholas causes the house to topple. Consequently, Fetuccini lets out a deep sigh; but now each of his buttons is gray.

Continuity mistake: As the cloud clipper is racing through a canyon in the Forest of Feelings, Tenderheart Bear says "We're going for a ride!" Here, the steering wheel is shown. It's composed of four posts running through the center of the hub, each having two handles on either side of the rim. At any rate, the Care Bears soon enter a dark cave and must slow to a crawl. Moments later, Bright Heart Raccoon directs the clipper away from a big rock. When he says "Whew, that was close!" take a look over his left shoulder and notice how the steering wheel now has a completely different fashion - there are only handles mounted around the rim, and no posts run through it at all.

Revealing mistake: When Tenderheart is flying through the carnival in his rainbow roller, take a good look at the background going by. After "In a Care Bear Family" plays, the camera pans a scene of the carnival once again. If something looks familiar, this is because the same exact background is used twice throughout the movie. Note the 'Joe's Antiques' truck, which is only relevant to a scene in the beginning when Fetuccini's magic trunk is delivered.

Continuity mistake: After Nicholas drops the magic trunk, Fetuccini orders him to gather the unbroken contents scattered across the floor. First he grabs a checkerboard and sets it on the table with hinges facing right. Then he picks up what appears to be a book wrapped in blue & yellow cloth and sets it on the table as well. In the following shot, a red seal on the book melts away. But take another look at the checkerboard: somehow it's been turned partially around, and now the hinges are facing outward instead of to the right. Later on - in the scene where Nicholas manages to open the book - the checkerboard rotates once again. This time, hinges appear in the back.

Continuity mistake: After Nicholas casts an evil spell on his audience beneath the tent, Tenderheart Bear jumps on stage and tries to control the situation. Meanwhile, there's a melee going on in the crowd. Some children are fighting right in front of the stage over Tenderheart's shoulder, most notably when Nicholas shouts "Sticks!" Suddenly, he and the evil spirit make an escape via green whirlwind. At this moment take a look right below stage level: apparently nobody is there at all. But in the final shot of the scene, after Tenderheart announces "This is a job for all the Care Bears," another view of the stage (virtually identical to the one just mentioned) now reveals lots of children fighting with one another.

Continuity mistake: During "In a Care Bear Family," Tenderheart Bear starts leading the Care Bears and Cousins up a ramp in the Hall of Hearts. When they all shout "Yeah!", part of a window can be seen where the clouds and sky are dark. In a few moments everybody walks outside, but now the sky is mostly sunny and bright.

Continuity mistake: After Nicholas casts his final spell, the Care Bears organize themselves to execute a stare; but suddenly the evil spirit knocks them into the line of carts. Keep an eye on the front seats where Friend Bear and Tenderheart land. As the carts begin rolling away, notice how Bedtime Bear's legs stick out from beneath Friend Bear, and Funshine Bear's head is obscured by Tenderheart. However, in the next shot Bedtime Bear's legs are nowhere in sight and Funshine Bear's head rests awkwardly upon her own lap.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Mr. Cherrywood agrees to tell the children a story, four boys and four girls sprint over to two separate beds - where they all stay and listen for the remainder of the movie. In the immediate vicinity of the boys' bed is a nightstand with a half-filled drinking glass and a ball on top. Hanging from the wall above the headboard is a framed picture as well. Once Mr. Cherrywood wraps up his story, he and Mrs. Cherrywood start carrying the children to their own beds. But just before Tenderheart Bear peeks through the window, notice how the framed picture has become a poster fastened with two pieces of tape and the drinking glass has transformed into a table lamp.

Continuity mistake: In an attempt to save Kim and Jason from the evil spirit's bird, Playful Heart Monkey climbs the nearest tree, grabs hold of a green vine and swings right into the bird's path. In the next shot, watch as Playful Heart comes into view on the right side of the screen. Here, the vine has changed its color to purple all of a sudden.

Continuity mistake: By the first twenty minutes it's established that Friend Bear's tummy symbol is two crisscrossed flowers, one of which has a green leaf on the stem. In the scene where Grumpy Bear spots Tenderheart's out of control rainbow roller, one shot shows Friend Bear and Secret Bear looking on helplessly. But notice how her leaf is missing, only to reappear when Wish Bear says "Oh, no!" a moment later.

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas and Tenderheart are struggling to close the evil spirit's book, Secret Bear rushes over to create a key out of thin air. Meanwhile over a dozen onlooking Care Bears and Cousins are waiting anxiously from the rails. After Jason finally manages to lock the book, there's a shot of the entire group jumping around and cheering; but notice how almost everybody is standing in a different location this time. In addition, Champ and Bedtime Bear have disappeared completely.

Continuity mistake: After the rainbow rescue beam transports Kim, Jason, Secret Bear and Friend Bear to Care-a-Lot, many onlookers appear to be stunned. At this point, Cheer Bear says "Oh my stars!" Notice how one of her tummy symbol's rainbow stripes is dark blue. In the following shot, however, a light blue stripe appears instead.

Continuity mistake: After Cozy Heart Penguin is introduced, an evil barracuda sets out to trap the cloud clipper in a whirlpool - and it's not long before Tenderheart loses control of his steering wheel. Up above the deck we can see the mast rotating on a fixed point in a counterclockwise manner; but in the next shot its motion has suddenly wandered dramatically off-center.

Continuity mistake: After Mr. Cherrywood performs a brief juggling act for the children, he wishes everyone a good night and gets ready to leave the room, placing his right hand on the door's edge. But after they call him back to recite a bedtime story, Mr. Cherrywood's hand is now on the doorknob instead.
