American Greetings Properties has given the thumbs up to a new CGI Care Bears TV series.
The new shows are due to debut in 2012 to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the property. A toy line from Hasbro is also being planned for 2013.
"The Care Bears are not just a piece of 80s pop culture, but an enduring and still beloved property whose messages of caring and sharing are as relevant today as they were when the property was first introduced," said Gabrielle Oliff, marketing director for AGP.
"By producing a new television series, we are excited to help mums who grew up with the Care Bears share them with their own children."
