Tenderheart is one of the ten original Care Bears to have been released in the first plush toy line in 1983. He was quickly established in the Nelvana cartoon series as the bears' leader, often the kindest and most level-headed bear playing straight man to the others' name-related neuroses. He is made of infinite patience, which is probably useful with the release of the new 2004-present resurgance of Care Bears. With this new release, Tenderheart has regrettably fallen as just another fur color amidst a squadron of other bears, oftentimes limited to the "classic" series only available in Carlton Cards-affiliated stores. Classic or no, Tenderheart Bear will always lead the good fight against depression, even if it's limited to the fandom that refuses to forget him.
