History:

(Care Bears#11) - No-Heart, the diabolical wizard who sought the downfall of the kindly Care Bears, initiated another nefarious plan and sent his henchman Beastly to the cloud-based land of Care-A-Lot to gain the dimensions of a Care Bear. Once identified, No-Heart turned four of his evil lackey Shadows, mixed with garbage, into dark forms of Care Bears with nasty traits; No-Heart dubbed them the Who-Cares Bears, comprising the selfish killjoy Bored Bear, the forever stubborn No-No-Bear, the ill-mannered gluttonous Unbearable Bear, and the corrupting and cheating Unfair Bear.

   Sent to the children's soccer field and Southside Schoolyard below Care-A-Lot, the Who-Cares Bears created trouble with their influence, causing fights, eating all the food and encouraging cheating. Seeing the trouble down below, four Care Bears (Bedtime Bear, Cheer Bear, Funshine Bear, Good Luck Bear) went to investigate but the Who-Cares Bears had already left, leaving the real Care Bears to take the blame. No-Heart next intended to disrupt the school assembly using the Who-Cares Bears, but the real Care Bears had finally found out the wizard's evil plan and rushed to counter it. This led to a confrontation between the four Who-Cares Bears and the four real Care Bears on the stage at the packed school assembly. The powerful Care Bear Stare matched the Who-Cares Bear Glare until the children in the audience started cheering for the good-hearted and protective Care Bears. The bumbling Beastly inadvertently interfered and the Who-Cares Bears were revealed as empty husks with Shadows inside. Good Luck Bear cast them away with his chest beam.
