Picks and Pans Review: The Care Bears in the Land Without Feelings

UPDATED 05/13/1985 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 05/13/1985 at 01:00 AM EDT

Tenderheart, Bedtime, Funshine and the rest of the perhaps excessively good-natured little bears take on Professor Coldheart. The professor, who gets to sing a song that smacks of the Rolling Stones' Sympathy for the Devil, is a terrific villain, who wants to change everyone into emotionless zombies. The Bears get to unleash their Care Bear Stare and generally ooze lovability. This is a charming way for children waiting for the video version of The Care Bears Movie to pass the time, though on the first editions of this tape, after the original story is over, the rest of its 60 or so minutes is padded with old '30s vintage cartoons. They're pretty funny cartoons but nowhere on the package is a purchaser warned that he's getting a diluted product. Newer editions replace the cartoons with additional Care Bears stories.
