Feeling sad that her fellow Care Bears don't seem to appreciate her wishes, Wish Bear uses her wish star, Twinkers, to find some bears who love wishing as much as she does. That's when three new bears move to Care-a-lot...with some very unexpected results. In fiction a wish is a supernatural gift granting the recipients unlimited request. ... The Pleiades, an open cluster in the constellation of Taurus A star is a massive, compact body of plasma in outer space that is currently producing or has produced energy through nuclear fusion. ...


Plot

The movie starts with the Care Bears hearing a tale of baby Wish Bear finding her new friend, Twinkers, as she is having a picnic in the forest. The Care Bears are touched by the tale, but are bit worried when Wish Bear uses Twinkers' powers to wish them all some popcorn. They worry it may be a frivolous use of Twinkers' power, but Wish Bear assures them she's a trained professional. Popcorn popped Popcorn or popping corn is a type of maize which puffs up when it is heated in oil or by dry heat. ...


The next day, Wish Bear uses the wishing power to help out some friends in need. She wishes for plenty of rainbow sap for Share Bear and for Grumpy Bear's rocket to have lots of zoom. The wishes backfire, however, when the sap overflows and the rocket spins out of control. Sap exuding (gummosis) from the stem of a koa tree, probably in response to surface damage Sap is the fluid carried in tubules inside a plant, circulating to distribute food and water to various parts of the plant. ... A Redstone rocket, part of the Mercury program The traditional definition of a rocket is a vehicle, missile or aircraft which obtains thrust by the reaction to the ejection of fast moving fluid from within a rocket engine. ...


A monthly meeting of the Care-a-Lot steering committee reveals a problem--the meter that measures how much caring there is in Care-a-Lot has moved towards the raincloud side. It's suggested that they have a special month of showing how much they care. Wish Bear suggests using her wishes, but is told that they don't always work out the way she intended.


Wish Bear is upset that nobody seems to like her wishes. As she laments this, she comes up with the idea of wishing for other bears who like wishing as much as she does. She makes a wish and three new bears arrive in Care-a-Lot--Me Bear, Messy Bear and Too-Loud Bear.


At first, everyone is pleased to welcome the new neighbours, but soon, things get out of control. The neighbours abuse Twinkers' power to create themselves a huge mansion and Me Bear creates an entire gift shop dedicated to herself. The wishes drain the colour right out of Care-a-Lot and, worse, Wish Bear accidentally wishes away Twinkers to the three. A gift shop is a store primarily selling souvenirs relating to a particular topic, often to simply provide evidence that the consumer has visited that location. ...


The new neighbors finally realise that what they've done has messed up Care-a-Lot. However, their idea of wishing the problem away simply leads to more problems. Finally, Twinkers loses his power from exhaustion. Wish Bear uses Grumpy Bear's rocket to bring him to Big Wish in the sky. She restores his power, but not before Wish Bear assures her that she's learned her lesson.


Back in Care-a-Lot, Wish Bear tells everyone that they can't simply wish this problem away. So they all work together to make Care-a-Lot beautiful again.

Care Bears - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3115 words)
Each Care Bear comes in a different color and with a specialised insignia on its belly: for example, "Bedtime Bear" is pastel blue and sports a sleepy-looking anthropomorphised crescent moon, and "Cheer Bear" is pink with a rainbow insignia.
The Care Bears' ultimate "weapon" is the "Care Bear Stare", in which the collected Bears stand together and radiate light from their respective tummy symbols, combining to form a ray of love and good cheer which could bring care and joy into the target's heart.
The movies were dubbed in Mexico, the first half of the Nelvana series was dubbed in Chile, the second half was dubbed in Venezuela and a new dubbed version, broadcast on the Latin American version of Cartoon Network's Boomerang channel, was later dubbed in Colombia.
