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.
Continuity mistake: During "Home is in the Heart" after we meet the Care Bear Cousins we see everyone weaving yellow and red ribbons around a pole. Then the camera cuts to a more distant view of them sliding down some clouds away from the finished pole. The trouble is, the yellow and red color scheme we saw on the pole a minute ago is now a multi-colored rainbow scheme.
Continuity mistake: When Kim and Jason first arrive in Care-A-Lot and they are still standing on the rainbow rescue platform, with Secret Bear and Friendship Bear. One shot shows Sunshine Bear standing next to Jason, instead of Friendship Bear, then in the very next shot Sunshine Bear is now right in front of Jason, talking to him.
Continuity mistake: When Tenderheart Bear is in the trailer watching Nicholas and Fetuccini from the doorway, notice the wall below Fetuccini's left hand as he speaks: it's plain, flat pieces of wood. But when Tenderheart is suddenly forced to hide beneath the desk, he spots a large hole in the wall through which he can see Nicholas. It shouldn't be there at all since the adjacent wall on the opposite side had no visible holes in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: When Nicholas opens the door to reveal that Fetuccini has been possessed by a sleeping spell, a top hat and cape are visible, hanging from their own hooks on a nearby coat rack. But soon the evil spirit convinces Nicholas to perform magic tricks on Fetuccini's behalf. Once he reaches over to grab the hat and cape, they are suddenly hanging by the same hook.
00:17:05 - 00:18:20ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: After Jason takes Secret Bear's key and seals off the evil spirit's book for good, all of the Care Bears and Cousins who were watching anxiously start cheering and jumping around. At this point, notice how the whole background consists of carnival stands, tents and a ferris wheel. But once Lotsa Heart Elephant sounds his trumpet a few moments later, there's nothing in the background except for trees.
Continuity mistake: Right before Fetuccini leaves Nicholas alone to clean up the contents of his magic trunk, plenty of sunlight is shining through the doorway where Tenderheart stands watching. But in the next scene where Nicholas is lighting a lamp and placing objects on the table, the doorway appears completely dark - as though it were a closet. Had Fetuccini closed the trailer's outside door, this might be justified.
Continuity mistake: When Friend Bear is working beneath the hood of a cloud mobile, Secret Bear relaxes in the driver's seat. Just then, Wish Bear runs over to break some news. In the following shot she reaches out to tap Secret Bear's head, but now he's repositioned outside of the cloud mobile.
Continuity mistake: When Good Luck Bear and Grumpy are finalizing the rainbow rescue beam's repairs, a cloud quake splits the Hall of Hearts' floor in two. All of the floor tiles switch direction in this shot, but they quickly return to normal as the bears reach over to save their tools.
Continuity mistake: During Nicholas' final confrontation with the Care Bears, he repeatedly asks for Kim and Jason's whereabouts - but they won't give it away. Suddenly they all execute a stare and, in one of the following shots where the evil spirit whispers "Too late," Nicholas is briefly missing his magician's cape.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tenderheart's cloud clipper approaches a waterfall, the other Care Bears team up to make a red balloon which carries it to safety. In the first distant view of the clipper being lifted, Lotsa Heart Elephant is standing near the helm; but in the next shot when Tenderheart says "Well done," he is now looking down below over the starboard side with Bright Heart Raccoon.
Continuity mistake: After Cozy Heart Penguin introduces herself and jumps aboard the cloud clipper, it resumes sailing down the river and, on top of the mast, a pink banner is visible flapping in the wind. Several shots later when a whirlpool takes over, Cozy Heart says, "We're caught," but now there's no banner on the mast.
00:36:35 - 00:37:10ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Nicholas wakes up in Fetuccini's magic trunk, an evil spirit's glowing book speaks to him from across the room saying "I know many things." He suddenly gasps with surprise and, in the following shot, lifts himself up. Between these two shots, the number of bolts fastened to the trunk changes (note the right side rear and on either edge of the lock where Nicholas' feet were hanging).
Continuity mistake: Inside the castle where the Care Bears are lined up together getting ready to initiate their stare on Nicholas, Cheer Bear's rainbow tummy symbol is colored red, green and blue. But at the moment they all begin to stare, the sequence changes to red, yellow and green.
Continuity mistake: After Nicholas springs from the trailer to search for magic spell ingredients, he runs over to the nearest garbage can and starts picking. Behind him is a gazebo, and its staircase is located three openings from the right. But later on when Nicholas and Fetuccini are outside talking about friends, take another look at the same gazebo: the staircase has moved all by itself - now it is located five spaces from the right.
00:52:40 - 01:06:30ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: While Grumpy and Good Luck Bear are in Care-a-Lot putting finishing touches on the broken rainbow rescue beam, a cloud quake ruptures the floor beneath their feet and scatters debris all around. After the quake recedes, Grumpy shoots Good Luck Bear an astonished look and, at this point, bits and pieces of the ceiling are visible on either side of the floor's seam. But in the next shot when they both turn their heads to the caring meter outside, no pieces appear anywhere.
Continuity mistake: When Secret Bear and Friend Bear's cloud mobile circles out of control right above the park, Kim and Jason are shown walking hand in hand on a trail below. But in the next shot when they witness the bears crash into a tree, they're suddenly walking apart from one another.
Continuity mistake: Once the Care Bears aboard the cloud clipper defeat the evil spirit's bird, it begins sailing towards shore. From back to front, the clipper's rudder is colored red, green and yellow. But after Secret Bear and Friend Bear descend from the cliff, the next shot of the clipper shows a reversed color sequence on the rudder.
Continuity mistake: When Tenderheart and the other Care Bears begin sailing through a canyon in the Forest of Feelings, nobody is standing on the cloud Clipper's bow where the star-o-scope is mounted. But moments later after Tenderheart says, "We're going for a ride!", Wish Bear is suddenly there at the bow holding on for dear life as the waters start to rage.
Continuity mistake: After Fetuccini tells Nicholas to check for any useful items in the magic trunk, he gets to work right away but first needs to light a kerosene lamp on the floor. Once he replaces the lamp's chimney, notice how the knob is pointing to the trunk. A few minutes later in the same room, Nicholas is passed out. Here, the handle now faces in a different direction - towards the table on the opposite side (most noticeable immediately before Tenderheart shouts "Stop!").
00:08:55 - 00:17:35ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: In the scene where two boys are chasing Playful Heart Monkey and Friend Bear through the carnival grounds, the one wearing light brown shoes angrily kicks over a box of junk on his way by. But when he runs away in the next shot, he's wearing black shoes instead.
Continuity mistake: After Hugs and Tugs toy with the rainbow rescue beam, it accidentally transports Kim, Jason, Secret Bear and Friend Bear to the Hall of Hearts. Friend Bear is standing on the platform right behind Jason's left hand as she begins talking to the other Care Bears. In the following shot she says, "Someone brought us here!" but is now standing in front of Jason.
Continuity mistake: When Grumpy Bear is performing repairs on the rainbow rescue beam, Good Luck Bear directs his attention to the ailing caring meter for a moment. Next, Grumpy slides back underneath the control panel to resume his work - at which point the white patch on his tummy beneath the symbol is visible. After Good Luck generates a four-leaf clover, Grumpy slides out yet again; but now the white patch has turned completely blue.
Continuity mistake: Share Bear's tummy symbol consists of two straws in a milkshake cup dotted with a couple of small red hearts, as seen near the beginning when Grumpy Bear is working on the rainbow rescue beam. But when the Care Bears and Cousins are gathered around the carousel, Share Bear slides down a pole and walks away. However, in this shot her tummy symbol is missing both hearts.
00:09:40 - 00:57:40ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: During "Care-a-Lot" when Friend and Secret Bear are getting ready to pull away in their cloud mobile, Wish Bear is standing near the driver's side holding her star-o-scope. Behind the scope we can see her shooting star tummy symbol. For a moment the cloud mobile grinds to a halt. But once it's ready for takeoff again, Wish Bear is standing in the same position, only this time her tummy symbol is missing.
Continuity mistake: In "Nobody Cares Like a Bear," Secret Bear is sporting a blue tuxedo adorned with a small white flower near his left collar. Roughly halfway through the song he slides down a rainbow, landing face-first in the clouds. But once he's pulled free, the flower is suddenly missing - only to reappear in the next shot when he's carried away by a balloon.
00:12:40 - 00:14:00ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Nicholas is passed out in Fetuccini's magic trunk, an evil spirit whispers his name twice from within a locked book on the table nearby. Suddenly this book comes into focus, and behind it is a picture hanging on the wall. But after Nicholas asks the spirit how it knows so much, a similar shot of the book now has no picture in the background.
Continuity mistake: At the cloud clipper's stern is a rainbow rudder, which can be seen as it rises from the river on Care-a-Lot. However, during one scene just before the clipper exits the other side of a dark cave in the Forest of Feelings, the rudder is briefly colored solid yellow.
00:26:25 - 00:43:35ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Kim and Jason are being followed by Nicholas into the fun house, the first obstacle they must negotiate is a series of wooden planks, each having ropes for handles on either side. As Nicholas inches closer, Kim loses her balance and falls down on the last plank, but its left handle is missing in this shot - only to reappear moments later when they make their escape.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the evil spirit's purple tree threatens Kim and Jason, Braveheart Lion leaves the others behind to scout ahead for a moment. As he speaks, notice how Playful Heart Monkey's tail is lying on the clouds beneath him. But in the next shot where everyone breathes a sigh of relief, his tail is suddenly standing upright.
Continuity mistake: When Secret Bear is leading Kim and Jason on a tour of Care-a-Lot, he pauses at the entrance for a moment and turns around. The door frame behind him is bordered with red hearts; but in the next shot when Secret Bear struggles to remove his hat, the red hearts are gone.
Continuity mistake: When Grumpy Bear is trying to fix the broken rainbow rescue beam after the cloud quakes, he seems to be missing a part that's shaped like a lollipop with a bent stick, having two small pink hearts positioned on either side. Just then, Good Luck Bear walks down a ramp and happens upon a lollipop, which is good enough for Grumpy. But in the following shot where Grumpy praises Baby Hugs and Tugs, one of the small pink hearts has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Grumpy Bear is performing repairs on the rainbow rescue beam, he slides under the control panel using a heart-shaped creeper. While he works, the pointed end of the creeper faces outward. Soon Grams Bear walks over needing help finding Baby Hugs and Tugs. But when he rises to his feet and rolls the creeper out of the way, it's suddenly facing the opposite direction.
Continuity mistake: At the very beginning when Mr. Cherrywood is juggling for the children, a toddler in the background watches from her crib - which has a gate made up of six posts. Right before Mr. Cherrywood makes his way to the door, a close up of the toddler's crib reveals a gate with five posts instead.
Continuity mistake: After the rainbow rescue beam transports Kim, Jason, Secret Bear and Friend Bear to the Hall of Hearts, several Care Bears are pictured just standing in awe. On the left is Champ Bear. His tummy symbol consists of a trophy with a small red heart in the center. Towards the end of "Nobody Cares Like a Bear," Champ is blowing bubbles with two other Care Bears, but in this shot his trophy is drawn without a heart.
00:11:50 - 00:14:25ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Nicholas remembers that Fetuccini is still under a sleeping spell, he starts running over to awaken him. But somewhere in between the two shots of Nicholas approaching the trailer and Fetuccini appearing to say "It's showtime!", a yellow piece of trim suddenly emerges below the door.
Continuity mistake: After Tenderheart Bear orders the other Care Bears and Cousins to seek out Nicholas in the carnival, Love-a-Lot and Gentle Heart sneak up to the trailer - from which he suddenly emerges in a fit of crazed laughter. In this shot, notice how the grounds are clean. But once Nicholas makes his way to the trash can hoping to find some ingredients for his spell, the ground is suddenly covered with litter. Only moments later when Love-a-Lot and Gentle Heart are hanging from the sign, look beneath the trailer: somehow the trash has managed to disappear.
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: 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.
00:06:35 - 01:09:30ryguy_1983
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.
00:08:05 - 00:16:55ryguy_1983
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.
00:01:25 - 01:11:00ryguy_1983
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.
Continuity mistake: When Braveheart Lion climbs the tree and extends his hand in an attempt to save Kim, Jason, Secret Bear and Friend Bear as they dangle from a branch, it finally snaps off. However, the branch is nowhere to be seen as everyone falls to the clouds in the next shot.
Continuity mistake: Throughout the movie on many occasions, a blue staircase with three steps is visible at the foot of Fetuccini's trailer door. But in one scene where Fetuccini announces that Nicholas will headline his latest magic act, notice how the staircase has two steps all of a sudden.
00:07:10 - 01:06:35ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Nicholas first realizes that an evil spirit is talking through the book, he is astonished and begins to stagger back. Behind him is a shelf with books and a cage. Notice how three books on the left hand side of the cage are stacked with their spines facing right. But later on when Tenderheart releases himself from the cage, these books are stacked differently - with the center book's spine now facing out.
00:09:15 - 00:18:30ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Fetuccini is giving Nicholas a magic lesson, he pulls a wand from his chest pocket and uses it to make a hand of cards spring out from his left hand. But two shots later, after Nicholas scatters an entire deck all over the floor, Fetuccini's wand is suddenly missing.
Continuity mistake: After the evil spirit's tree picks up Kim and Jason with its limbs, Friend Bear shouts "You asked for it!" and starts running over to confront it. In this shot, two small red hearts are visible on both of her sides, though they're only supposed to appear on a Care Bear's right side.
Continuity mistake: When the entire Care Bear family is first shown sitting around the heart-shaped table as Tenderheart speaks, notice how a pink wall surrounds the door frame in the background. But as everyone starts hopping over the table, all of a sudden there are clouds outlining the frame.
Revealing mistake: As the scene changes over from Fetuccini and Nicholas gathering cards to the inauguration ceremony, look very closely at the Care Bear Cousins (seated at the table's left side). Some of them, such as Swift Heart Rabbit and Playful Heart Monkey, already have tummy symbols - which are supposed to be awarded by Tenderheart several moments later.
Continuity mistake: When Nicholas and Tenderheart are on the castle's cart track struggling to keep the evil spirit's book closed, Jason walks over with Secret Bear's key which will lock it away for good. As he fastens the lock, notice how Jason is kneeling down between the two steel rails of the track. For a moment the scene cuts over to several onlooking Care Bears and Cousins; but the next shot reveals Jason kneeling on the other side of the rails.
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.
Continuity mistake: Inside the trailer where Nicholas gets chastised for spilling the magic trunk's contents, notice how Fetuccini is wearing two white gloves. Meanwhile, Tenderheart Bear is right outside to overhear what's going on. But the moment he tiptoes into the trailer, Fetuccini shouts "Enough of your sorries!" and briefly has no glove on his left hand.
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. But after Kim and Jason correct Playful Heart, he walks away causing the bears to lose their balance. But somehow they switch positions right before falling to the clouds.
Continuity mistake: Whenever Nicholas is shown casting his evil spells, a podium is present several feet away from the cauldron. Fast forward to the climactic finale. After the final ingredient drops into the cauldron, Tenderheart Bear runs over to reason with Nicholas; but notice how the podium has briefly vanished at this point.
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.
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.
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. Later, Nicholas pulls a dove from his hat on the same stage. But as he takes a bow, the floorboards are now arranged in the opposite direction.
00:20:15 - 01:09:50ryguy_1983
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.
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.
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 - 01:08:35ryguy_1983
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.
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.
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.
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 - 01:00:45ryguy_1983
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.
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.
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.
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 - 01:04:55ryguy_1983
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.
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 - 01:02:00ryguy_1983
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.
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.
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.
Deliberate mistake: During "Nobody Cares Like a Bear," Kim opens a gift box containing a balloon. Secret Bear then grabs it and floats away. But when Grumpy Bear tosses a star and pops the balloon, confetti flies out of it and, for the next second, keeps reappearing from nowhere.
Continuity mistake: Following a cloud quake that interrupts the rainbow rescue beam's transmission, Tenderheart pulls himself up from the floor. Here we can see Wish Bear in the background. After Grumpy Bear says "They never made it to Earth!", Cheer Bear appears in Wish's place.
Continuity mistake: As Fetuccini is standing near the door possessed by a sleeping spell, Tenderheart enters the room and speaks to Nicholas. In the background, Fetuccini's feet are spread a couple of feet apart. But after Nicholas turns around to ask "Who are you?", the feet have instantly moved within inches of each other.
Continuity mistake: When Baby Tugs activates the rainbow rescue beam, all of the different buttons start flashing. The next shots bring a heart-shaped structure into view and at this point, the buttons briefly stop flashing; but they resume as soon as Grumpy intervenes to shut down the beam.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Kim and Jason are inside the Hall of Hearts being taken on a tour of Care-a-Lot, Secret Bear leads the way sporting a top hat and carrying a cane. When he pops his hat into the air, notice how the cane's handle is facing different directions in alternating shots. All the while, several other Care Bears are lined up watching. Note that Share and Champ Bear are standing beside each other. However, Cheer Bear briefly appears in Share Bear's place right before everyone proceeds outside.
Continuity mistake: When Nicholas is about to gather the broken contents of the magic trunk, an evil spirit speaks to him from a book. Suddenly, he staggers back and passes out in the trunk. Later on when he comes to, notice how all of the trunk's contents have disappeared from the floor.

Continuity mistake: When Kim and Jason are running with their heads turned, they circle around a tent and soon collide with Nicholas, causing him to trip over a hose and land several feet on the other side of it. Once Nicholas reaches out to capture the two children, we can see him sitting on opposite side of the hose.
Continuity mistake: As Nicholas is carrying a magic trunk into the trailer, Fetuccini sits in his swivel chair constructing a house of cards. Notice how the chair's back support is held up by one solid piece. In a different shot, Nicholas is losing his balance - here's where Fetuccini's chair has three posts holding up the back support. Later, Fetuccini is plucking his mustache on the same chair but now it strangely has two posts.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, when Nicholas is standing near the castle entrance, he demands the Care Bear family to surrender Kim and Jason. In his right hand is the magic spell book - which has the evil spirit's glowing green head between the pages and a portrait of its face on the front. After Good Luck Bear and Grumpy transport themselves to Earth via rainbow rescue beam, the next two shots of the book reveal a blank cover without the evil spirit's glowing head.
Continuity mistake: When Fetuccini is scolding Nicholas inside the trailer, Tenderheart becomes trapped beneath the desk where he's able to peer at Nicholas through a hole in the wall. After "Nobody Cares Like a Bear," notice that Fetuccini is plucking his mustache. However, Tenderheart has vanished from beneath the desk...only to reappear in the next shot.
00:08:10 - 00:14:55ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: Towards the end of "Home Is In Your Heart," everybody starts running through a trail in the Forest of Feelings. Notice, for instance, that Jason's left hand is holding Secret Bear's right hand. But in the next shot, everybody in the chain has suddenly switched hands.
Other mistake: As the cloud clipper nears a waterfall, Tenderheart orders the other Care Bears on deck. Here they use "stares" to recreate the images on their tummies, forming a balloon that floats everyone to safety. Notice there are eight bears huddled together. When Tenderheart gives the cue, only seven images rise to the top of the mast. It turns out that Champ Bear's trophy is missing.
Continuity mistake: When Kim and Jason enter the fun house, their first obstacle has large wooden planks held up with ropes. Once they step onto the sixth and final plank, Nicholas points his finger on the opposite side. From this vantage point, however, there are only four planks.
Continuity mistake: Once Nicholas unlocks the evil spirit, it asks him to recite two spells from the book - the first of which slams a door in Fetuccini's face. As he tries the door, we can see that it's made of five boards. The next spell sends Fetuccini into a deep sleep, and at this point Nicholas opens the door to reveal that it's now composed of four boards.
Continuity mistake: During "Home Is In Your Heart," Kim begins to sing about a rose, and the one she's holding has leaves and a stem attached; but when Secret Bear reaches out to stroke it, these parts have disappeared. Kim then tosses the rose to distract a bee and, all of a sudden, the stem and leaves reappear.
Continuity mistake: When Grams Bear steps over to ask Grumpy about Hugs and Tugs' whereabouts, she stands on a rainbow ramp - colored yellow, orange and red. Once they walk away to search, Hugs and Tugs enter the scene sliding down the ramp, which has suddenly changed colors to green, yellow and orange.
Continuity mistake: After Tenderheart Bear gets trapped underneath Fetuccini's desk, the scene changes to Care-a-Lot. Here we can see a rainbow leading up to the Hall of Hearts' entrance. Initially, the rainbow has six colors arranged from red to violet. Just before the doors swing open to reveal Grumpy Bear at work on the rainbow rescue beam, red disappears from the color sequence.
Continuity mistake: When Playful Heart Monkey and Friend Bear are being pursued by a pair of kids through the dilapidated carnival, they take cover near a calliope. Upon first glance, the calliope's three blue levers are pointing down, up and down (in that sequence). Suddenly these levers change to red and get a different arrangement: down, down and up (with the lever nearest Playful Heart now conveniently positioned up for him to lean on and activate the music).
Continuity mistake: When Secret Bear is chasing a butterfly on the clouds, he suddenly falls through and lands on Friend Bear's lap inside of the cloud car. Consequently, the car spirals out of control towards Earth. Just before they land in the city park, the two bears can now be seen sitting alongside one another.
Continuity mistake: After the cloud clipper sets off on a voyage, the scene changes to the Forest of Feelings - where a four-color rainbow is circling down towards the ground, representing Friend Bear, Secret Bear, Kim and Jason. Notice the interior portion of the rainbow has reversed colors relative to the exterior; but immediately before the rainbow dissipates, the colors adjust themselves back to normal.
Continuity mistake: At the inauguration ceremony, Tenderheart Bear begins walking towards the family. Just then, four cousins leap across the heart-shaped table and start dancing on the floor (Bright Heart Raccoon, Gentle Heart Lamb, Loyal Heart Dog and Proud Heart Cat). As Tenderheart approaches the table, these cousins are once again seated, but they quickly reappear standing in the next shot.
Other mistake: When the cloud clipper runs aground to greet the remaining Care Bear Cousins, Tenderheart slides to shore over a translucent rainbow bridge to have an exchange with Kim and Jason. Just as he says "I know exactly what you mean," the camera pans left and Love-a-Lot Bear is visible near the bridge missing her figure from the neck down.
Continuity mistake: When Grumpy Bear is making final adjustments on the rainbow rescue beam, Good Luck Bear indicates an alarming drop on the caring meter outside. Suddenly a cloud quake occurs and the meter's gauge vanishes. As the quake settles, both of them look outside to see the gauge intact once again.
Continuity mistake: When Nicholas is passed out in the magic trunk, he comes to when the evil spirit calls his name. On the poster in the background, "amazing" & "magician" are initially on their own separate lines. As the scene progresses, the two words can be seen grouped together on one line and then two lines in alternating shots.
Continuity mistake: When Fetuccini places the last pair on his house of cards, there is a 2 of Spades in his left hand. As the two cards collapse, one lands on the table and the 2 of Spades becomes a 7 of Clubs. Suddenly, Nicholas is shown struggling with the magic trunk and, in the next shot, the other card has disappeared from the table.
Continuity mistake: When Kim and Jason are being pursued by Nicholas in the fun house, they begin running down a red staircase which changes into a slide. In the background is a painted face with seven teeth, one of which has a hole in it. As Nicholas slides down the staircase, the painting now has six teeth free of any holes.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Fetuccini attempts to teach Nicholas card tricks, the poster on the wall behind Fetuccini is misspelled as "The Great Fetuccni". After Nicholas drops his deck on the floor, Fetuccini begins to laugh. When they reach down to collect the deck we see that Fetuccini's hand of cards has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: As the cloud clipper is rotating in the evil spirit's whirlpool, Wish Bear ties a rope around the star buddy and tosses it into the air for Lotsa Heart Elephant to catch on shore. As the clipper is being hauled from the whirlpool, Wish Bear runs to the starboard side. However, in the next shot, she can be seen at the bow peering into the star-o-scope.
Continuity mistake: After the cloud clipper first appears from beneath Care-a-Lot's river, Wish Bear, Love-a-Lot and Tenderheart jump on board (in that sequence) upon a rainbow bridge with four colors: red, orange, yellow and green. In the next shot, blue is added the rainbow's color sequence and two of the bears are shown entering in the wrong order (Tenderheart now appears behind Wish Bear and Love-a-Lot is trailing in the back). As soon as everyone is aboard, the rainbow colors reverse themselves before the bridge disappears.
Continuity mistake: During the introduction, Wish Bear is using a star-o-scope to observe Earth from Care-a-Lot. All of a sudden, she spots Kim & Jason and begins to make her way down a rainbow slide. In the next shot, a green mount is affixed to the scope which wasn't previously there.
Continuity mistake: As the Care Bear family is running along the blue sky chasing Tenderheart during "In a Care Bear Family", Birthday Bear is absent from the group. When we see everybody standing in line clapping their hands in the next shot, the camera pans right and he is seen standing third-to-last as the song winds down.
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 with a whistle. The striped post beside the star buddy circles upwards. However, when the bears are signaled to proceed, the post is now circling downwards.
Continuity mistake: When Nicholas is about to strike Swift Heart Rabbit with the fire, his right shoe happens upon a wad of gum - the final ingredient for his magic spell. At this point he removes some of the gum and makes his way to the castle. Later on, when uttering the last three words of the incantation by the cauldron, Nicholas can be seen wearing two shoes and pulling a third one from his cape - which is soiled with gum; whereas he should only be wearing a left shoe.

Continuity mistake: In order to snap Nicholas out of his evil trance, Tenderheart and the other Care Bears attempt one more stare on him and the evil spirit's book. While Nicholas and the spirit are laughing together, the bears' colorful array of light beams is visible beneath the book. After the Cousins are finished calling, Nicholas shows signs of weakness. But when the evil spirit's pages are flipping out of control in the next shot, the Care Bears are still staring of course, but their light beams are not visible at all.
Continuity mistake: After Nicholas turns a key to unlock the evil spirit's book, it opens itself to the very middle and emits a powerful sequence of green light rays. As a result, Nicholas is thrown to a wall in the next shot; but now all of the book's pages are flipping back and forth wildly all of a sudden.
Continuity mistake: When Friend Bear is peering through Wish Bear's star-o-scope during the opening credits, a rainbow and pink cloud hut are visible in the background. As soon as the shot changes, Friend Bear walks off screen. But now both the rainbow and hut have disappeared completely.
Continuity mistake: When the cloud clipper first appears in the Forest of Feelings, Wish Bear is on the bow looking through a star-o-scope - which has a green handle and mount. By the time a whirlpool traps the clipper, Wish Bear asks Tenderheart "Why are you turning here?" Here the scope parts have changed color to yellow.
00:35:50 - 00:37:05ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: As Kim, Jason, Friend and Secret Bear are hanging from a tree upon entering the Forest of Feelings, notice that Jason's shoes are white, excluding a small black stripe on each one. As Secret Bear motions that Brave Heart Lion is near, the entire right side of each shoe has turned completely black.
