The Care Bears Movie

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)

Other mistake: In the Forest of Feelings where Kim, Jason, Secret Bear and Friend Bear are clinging to the tree branch, they see Braveheart Lion climbing up the side. But notice that when he takes a second step with his left foot, it lands on one of the tree's roots down below instead of something higher up like another branch - which is obviously the best way to scale a tree towards the top. (00:27:35)

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: As the Care Bears and Cousins are lined up outside of the castle to confront Nicholas, Good Luck Bear and Grumpy Bear transport themselves from Care-a-Lot with the newly repaired rainbow rescue beam. In this shot, notice how Good Luck and Grumpy are sporting raincoats which lack any pockets. But a few minutes later when everyone is celebrating the evil spirit's defeat, a pair of pockets has suddenly appeared on each raincoat. (01:01:45 - 01:04:55)

Continuity mistake: During "Home Is In Your Heart," Friend Bear is watering the clouds to make a rainbow grow. On her right side is a bird. But when the rainbow appears a second later, the bird has vanished. (00:29:40)

Continuity mistake: After Fetuccini rises from a sleeping spell, he steps out of the trailer and places his right arm around Nicholas to explain a wonderful dream. But as they walk away to look at the painting, the shot changes and Nicholas is now on Fetuccini's left side. (01:05:40)

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas is walking around to gather ingredients for his final spell, the first things he must locate are apple cores (three to be exact). On the side of Fetuccini's trailer he spots one core stuck to the painting, but this is where he says "Three apple cores. Just what I need!" Nicholas grabs only one core, never finding two additional ones. Meanwhile he notices a spider web hanging beneath the trailer. But as he reaches out to take it, the apple core instantly disappears from his right hand. (00:52:45)

Continuity mistake: Upon first view of Nicholas' castle, notice how the doorway has a round arch. But towards the end - when Nicholas is seeking out Kim and Jason after casting his final spell - the doorway now has a completely different arch (somewhat like a Tudor Arch) at this point. (00:25:20 - 01:02:00)

Continuity mistake: While Friend Bear, Secret Bear, Kim and Jason are being transported down to Earth via rainbow rescue beam, a cloud quake strikes and devastates the Hall of Hearts. Everyone has hit the floor by the time it subsides. But watch as the shot changes to Tenderheart lifting himself up: notice how debris has suddenly appeared all over the place from nowhere. (00:24:35)

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas casts his very first evil spell inside the tent, a girl and boy are in the front row enjoying some popcorn in a cup. But as the lightning flashes, notice how the cup briefly shifts from the girl's right hand to the boy's left hand within the same shot. (00:19:45)

Continuity mistake: After Cozy Heart Penguin jumps on board with the Care Bears, a whirlpool begins to swerve the cloud clipper and Tenderheart's steering wheel begins to spin out of control. Initially the wheel has eight handles, but look closely once it stops: now only six handles are there. (00:36:50)

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas accidentally drops his shoe into the cauldron, an explosion causes him to jump back. At this moment, look quickly at the podium nearby. Notice how the evil spirit's face is temporarily missing from the book. (00:59:50)

Goodluck Bear: Any luck fixing the Rainbow Rescue Beam?
Grumpy Bear: I think I've used up all my good luck getting this far.
