Some elements of the Care Bears franchise pay homage to the legend of King Arthur. For example, the name of the main characters' residence, Care-a-lot, is a play on King Arthur's legendary Camelot castle. In addition, Sir Lancelot 's name inspired that of Love-a-lot Bear. On the first two specials and DiC television series, they battled against Professor Coldhearthis assistant Frostbiteand occasionally Auntie Freeze; in Nelvana's version, they faced Wizard No Heart, his bumbling assistant Beastly and his ill-tempered niece Shreekyand minor villains such as Dr.
Fright and Sour Sam. Following the revival, Sir Funnybone the rat was introduced as a villain in the movie Care Bears: For the revival, the new film Care Bears: These combine to form a ray of love and good cheer which could bring care and joy into the target's heart.
The Care Bear Stare has several different looks. One has a beam coming from the belly being made up of several replicated images of the symbol. A yellow beam with red hearts is sometimes seen as well.
The movies Care Bears: In the new series, Care Bears Adventures in Care-a-lot, the stare appears as a beam of light in the color of the bear from which it originates, but is initiated by simply rubbing the symbol. In the DiC series, the call looks identical to the Care Bear Stare and is often performed at the same time without it being referred to as the call. In the first movie, the Cousins, excluding Swift Heart Rabbit, simply made whatever animal noise is common to their species since they did not have any belly symbols; those are later given to them by the Care Bears at the end of the movie.
In the second movie, the Call looks like a musical score which radiates from their belly symbols. Although commonly used on villains, the stare and call have been also been used on humans and the Care Bears themselves.

It was occasionally used in the DiC series to cure Care Bears and humans who were placed under the effects of Professor Coldheart's uncaring magic. It also occurred once in Adventures in Care-a-lot, when it was used to temporarily cheer Grumpy up in the episode "Tell-Tale belly".
In addition to the Care Bear Stare, the Care Bears can also use their belly symbols to summon other assistance such as heart-shaped balloons, cloud cars, rainbow bridges and sending out a distress signal. Caring meter[ edit ] Shown prominently in most of the Care Bears movies and TV episodes made in the 80s, the Caring Meter is typically in the dead center of Care-a-lot inside the Care Bears' main meeting hall.
This meter shows how much caring there is both in Care-a-lot and on Earth. In The Care Bears' Big Wish Movie, the meter is shown with a raincloud less caring side and a rainbow more caring side. Ideally, the Caring Meter should be all the way towards the rainbow side. Whenever the Bears see the meter drop towards the raincloud side, they try to prevent it from getting worse by going on "caring missions" to try to get more people to care or for the Bears themselves to do caring deeds.
If the meter drops near zero, Care-a-lot will suffer disasters, such as thunderstormsbuildings and rainbows crumbling earlier movies or the bright colors of Care-a-lot gradually turning into black and white later movies. If the meter were to reach all the way to zero there is no caring anywherethen Care-a-lot would be gone forever. Initially, no mention was made of the Caring Meter in Care Bears: With the release of Grizzle-y Adventures, the franchise's first direct-to-DVD release, the Caring Meter has returned, and the Care Bears have begun to interact with humans once again.
