Care Bears: Ups and Downs featuring mixed heritage protagonist

cover for carebearsupdown  ‘Care Bears: Ups and Downs’ features Jake, a child of mixed heritage whose family has just moved to a new town. Jake is afraid to make new friends but the Care Bears fly in on a care rainbow and help him open up to making friends. His mom (white) and dad (a man of color) are shown but there is no mention of their family’s ethnic heritage. There is a subplot that takes place in Care-a-lot about surprises and gratitude. Rated: G; length: 45 minutes. Ages: 3+; Recommendation: Highly Recommended.
