Overview: Join the Care Bears for fun-filled adventures n friendship, kindness and understanding! After many years away from Care-a-Lot, Care Bears Cousins finally return home in 'Care Bears™ & Cousins: Take Heart – Volume 1', arriving on DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD November 1st from Lionsgate.

DVD Verdict: For those not in the know, 'Care Bears & Cousins' is a computer-animated television series which premiered on November 6th, 2015, on Netflix.

There’s exciting news in the land of Care-a-Lot! The Care Bear Cousins – Brave Heart Lion, Bright Heart Raccoon, Lotsa Heart Elephant, and Cozy Heart Penguin – have returned home. The Cousins make sure that the Share Cloud is always full of the Care Hearts that Care-a-Lot needs. When the Cousins’ ship is stolen, the Care Bears and the Cousins use their caring skills to retrieve the ship, save the Share Cloud, collect the lost Care Hearts, and much more in these heartwarming adventures!

In truth, I would like to say that this show isn't groundbreaking or anything close. It is simply just nice, and little bit of fun to watch, of course. Kids will like it and their parents may find some enjoyment while watching with their kids. What do I think of it? I think it is a nice show that kids and their parents can easily enjoy together.

The CGI is probably the thing that could turn people off, but once you get past that you'll find some enjoyment in this show. The characters are rather one-dimensional, but they're entertaining enough with their quirks. The writing is also quite okay, and there are some jokes that will give you some giggles know and then.

The voice acting is good, and actually feels like the actors/actresses are putting in some effort. Music, well, sorry, but not much to say about it, only that it works for the show as all. So overall, this series is a great watch for kids, as well as adults.

The six (6) endearing episodes included are: "Take Heart", "Return to Tender", "The Bright Stuff", "The Share Shack", "Belly Badgered" and "Wonder's Heart" If you have kids, then you should most certainly cheek out this delightful Care Bear series. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
