Cloudco Entertainment, the owner of the Care Bears franchise, is thrilled to announce six brand-new animated specials titled Care Bears: Unlock the Magic. Scheduled to debut throughout 2024, these specials will premiere on Warner Bros. Discovery’s outlets across EMEA on both Cartoonito and HBO Max / Max, as well as on Max in Latin America.


Adding to the 50 episodes previously launched to great acclaim globally, these six (6) all-new Care Bears: Unlock the Magic animated specials have already begun their American roll-out, with future US “drop dates” continuing into November. While individual EMEA country launch dates will vary, both Cartoonito and HBO Max / Max in the EMEA are planning to begin their roll outs this summer.


As to Latin American releases, Max just debuted their first special in mid-March (“The Quest for the Rainbow Stone”), with planned future release dates as follows: “Grumpy’s Ginormous Adventure” in late April, “The Star of a Thousand Wishes” in late July, “The Mystery of the Snickering Ghost” in late September, “The Bad Crowd Strikes Back!” in early October, and “The No Heart Games” in early November.


These specials have also launched in other key international territories such as on Pop! (UK), Family Channel (Canada), Channel 9 (Australia), and TVNZ (New Zealand).


“We’re excited to see the ongoing storytelling journey of Care Bears: Unlock the Magic unfold in an exciting new format and are thrilled to ‘go global’ with these specials via our fantastic partners at Cartoonito, HBO Max / Max in EMEA, and Max in Latin America. With the help of these broadcasters, these mini-movies will build upon the success of our season 1 episodes, enhance the overall Care Bears experience, and make for multiple ‘must-watch’ events,” said Ian Lambur, Senior VP of Content at Cloudco Entertainment.


Adding to this exciting development, the Care Bears, with over 40 years of heartwarming adventures, were recently honored as “The #3 Hottest Brand” in the global character licensing business by License Global Magazine. These remarkable milestones, coupled with the thriving success of its YouTube Channel, which has amassed over 185 million views, and a TikTok presence boasting over 400 thousand followers and 9.3 million likes, underscore the enduring appeal of the Care Bears brand. It continues to captivate existing fans while strongly resonating with the next generation.
