American Greetings to Start New Care Bears Series

CLEVELAND (AP) - American Greetings is putting the Care Bears back on Saturday morning T-V.

A new animated series featuring the Care Bears and another featuring Strawberry Shortcake will debut on C-B-S in September.

Cleveland-based American Greetings says the 52, eleven-minute Care Bears episodes will feature a contemporary twist on the classic characters.

A Care Bears movie is due out in August as American Greetings celebrates the characters' 25th anniversary.
