In an early alert to retailers, Lionsgate Entertainment has revealed that on October 9th
they plan to release a 6-DVD set titled Care Bears - The Original Series Collection
. Said to contain "over 60 classic episodes and a full-length movie
," this looks (to us, without official confirmation mind you!) like it will possibly contain everything produced for the series that aired from 1985 to 1988, plus The Care Bears Movie
as well. Pricing, package art and full details aren't available yet, but we do have the following description provided by the studio to sellers:
Originally created by American Greetings, the lovable bears of Care-a-lot - Cheer, Share, Harmony, and all their bear buddies - with unique belly badges and a caring mission have been delighting fans for 30 years! Whether it¹s learning the value of friendship, helping someone in need, or using their special powers to brighten up the day, the adorable Care Bears are always ready for caring, sharing, and giving goodness!
This is all we have at the moment, and keep in mind that this is early information (and some guesswork!), and could be subject to change. But stay tuned and we'll update you as further developments occur!
