Care Bears are a group of characters created by the U.S. greeting card company American Greetings in 1981.[1] The title characters originally appeared in card artwork by Elena Kucharik,[2] before branching out into various media and merchandise. The franchise launched in 1982 with ten title characters,[3] and in 1984 added several more characters known as the Care Bear Cousins.[4]:52

Each of the Care Bears and Care Bear Cousins has a "tummy symbol" – a picture or pattern that indicates the role or specialty of the character bearing it. Beginning with Care Bears: Oopsy Does It!, "tummy symbols" are sometimes referred to as "belly badges."[5]
