Care Bears are coming to Latin America, courtesy of a broadcast and home video distribution deal the characters’ owner, American Greetings, has cut with distributor Televix.

Televix will offer a full slate of Care Bears programming, including 52 episodes of Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot, the classic Care Bears animated series and five feature-length Care Bears movies.

Televix will be taking meetings with broadcasters about the property at the NATPE conference Jan. 24-26 in Miami, Fla.

The Care Bears first appeared on greeting cards in 1982, quickly becoming a popular line of toys and animated TV content. The franchise has generated more than $2.6 billion in global sales.
