edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for The Care Bears Movie:
  • Cleanse all red links before FAC
  • Any new images introduced in the article must meet WP:NFCC and WP:FILMNFI
    • An image of the Bears in the "Allusions" section, perhaps?
    • No free-use images of Nelvana's facilities to my knowledge; someone should take it and upload it to Commons or flickr, then add it to the "Production" section

Titles in different languages[edit]

Because lists of title translations are generally not a requirement for high-quality Wikipedia film articles, this list (part of it taken from the AKAs mirror at IMDb, unless otherwise noted) is put here for the convenience of translators:

If you want to create a translation from it into one of these languages above, make sure to put the relevant link into the article as soon as it is done. --Slgrandson 03:12, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Fair use images[edit]

10 fair use images? First thing that will have to go in a Featured Article Candidacy. Should probably reduce down to 4 or 5. I will wait a bit for consensus :) Judgesurreal777 20:48, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit]

These little things should be arranged :

  • ...modestly well... and ...modest success... sounds pov to me, change or find a citation.
  • The word recently in section Records should be changed as there is no time in encyclopedias.
  • The Plot is a bit long (but well-written and -prosed).
  • The link on ...this entry from the-numbers.com. should be added in the Footnotes section since it won't look like a link when the article will be in paper format.
  • According to some calculations should be changed as per MoS.

I am shocked as to how good this article is.--P-Chan 18:11, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

From a news clipping at C21 Media.net[edit]

"[The first Care Bears movie] grossed US$34 [million] internationally at the box office." [3]

Can someone verify this? Seems a little unclear, since the source is British and there has been no other box office information for this release outside the United States.

Still, it would be great to include this in the "Box office" section when it gets checked in full. A few suggestions as to what can support this factoid would be welcome. --Slgrandson 01:35, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Added trailer[edit]

Added link to trailer right next to bold movie name in 1st paragraph. If this is objectionable, then feel free to remove.

The link was added for content purposes.

Per WP:EL, it has recently been removed from the article. Links to YouTube and Google Video material are usually recommended against by the Wikipedia community. --Slgrandson (page - messages - contribs) 02:24, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Gored[edit]

Somebody gored the layout of the page bad about half way through. I'm too pre-occupied right now to fix it, so if it isn't fixed when i get back to check it, I will fix it.

Recently removed from article[edit]

The Care Bears Movie was originally produced in the 1.33:1 aspect ratio, and then matted in the widescreen format for its theatrical presentation. Up to the time of its release, this practice was common for most animated films, especially those made by Disney until the mid-1980's. As a result, no true widescreen version exists for this production. [4]

Per Mr. Wales' statement "Zero information is preferred to misleading or false information", and a temporary dead link to a forum, it has been removed. Only put it back into the page when reliable content can be found for this. --Slgrandson (page - messages - contribs) 17:23, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Peacock[edit]

Too many peacock terms, especially in the intro. Lots42 (talk) 12:15, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Swift Heart promo[edit]

(Removed from article's Production section; main source given is a forum post and does not comply with RS policy.)

The low-cost project started life as a short promo made for American Greetings. When they were pleased with the result, they asked Nelvana about the potential of a feature film stemming from it. After agreeing with AGC, most of the work (as they feared) would eventually end up, amid limited time and money, in the hands of Taiwan's Wang Film Productions and Cuckoo's Nest Studio, along with new studios Hanho Heung-Up and Mihahn in Korea.[Promo 1] (These production values contrasted heavily with those of Rock & Rule, where all of the work was done in Canada over a five-year period.) The finished film's only scene from the promo involved Swift Heart Rabbit speeding off to save Kim, Jason and various Care Bear characters from the Spirit, incarnated as an evil tree.[Promo 2]

Potential source worth checking soon[edit]

According to a Booklist review from 1997, one of the topics this book covers is The Care Bears Movie no less.[1] Here's crossing our fingers...

  1. ^ "Review: Wizards and Sorcerers: From Abracadabra to Zoroastrianism [sic]". Booklist. Vol. 94 no. 7. American Library Association (ALA). December 1, 1997. p. 659. Some of the inclusions are a bit of a reach, such as The Care Bears Movie in which white magic is used against a spirit

Yet another source worth considering...[edit]

  • Furniss, Maureen (Fall 1996). "Animation and Colour Key: The Career of Phyllis Craig". Animation Journal. Tustin, California: AJ Press: N/A. ISSN 1061-0308. 

From what I've gathered with Google Books' snippets, this Film Roman veteran said she worked on the film: "All of a sudden I was making a limb of water that looked totally real, when weeks before I was painting cute, little pink bears." If so, I'll try adding her in (both here, and on IMDb, as an uncredited crewmember). --Slgrandson (How's my egg-throwing coleslaw?) 03:30, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Everything in this article looks pretty much good to go, especially in the lead, plot, release, production and reception sections. Keep up the good work, Darth Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 01:14, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

what?[edit]

232 individual citations for an article about an animated childrens movie? Talk about overkill, no wonder new editors never stick around. What a pedantic little set of rules you guys have around here.
