It was just an normal day in the Kingdom of Caring. The Care Bear Family was preparing for the anniversary of the beginning of their grand family. It was hard to believe that they had been around for an entire century and had helped so many people. Everyone was excited. There was going to be a big party to celebrate their hundred years of helping children to share their feelings.

"This is going to be a great party, True Heart." Noble Heart stated to his cream-colored companion.

"Yeah Noble Heart. And I'd say we've earned it. Everyone has been working so hard lately." True Heart confirmed. "Can you believe we've been at this for a whole hundred years."

"I can't believe it."

Just then a red bear with a heart on his tummy came over accompanied by an orange lion with a heart and crown on his.

"Well, True Heart, all the lights are up and the floors are mopped." Tender Heart informed.

"That's great Tender Heart."

"And Harmony's got the music set up. This is going to be so much fun."

Meanwhile, in a small cloud cottage, two terribly hyper cubs went running about getting ready themselves, with the help of Grams Bear.

"Ooo, goody goody gosh Tugs! I can't wait for the party to start."

"Me neither Hugs. But Grams, what is an anniversary?"

The gray bear smiled. "Well, Tugs, it's the yearly celebration of a significant event, in our case, it's the celebration of the day the Care Bear Family was first began by True Heart Bear and Noble Heart Horse."

"But how did they start it?" Hugs asked.

"Now, that is a long story." Grams said going to sit down.

"A STORY?! Goody goody gosh." Hugs squealed as she and her brother went to sit on Grams Bear's lap.

"Tell us, Grams Bear, PLEASE!" Tugs begged.

"Yes Grams, PLEASE!" Hugs added.

"All right my little darlings. Now, let me see, oh yes. It all started on a small farm in Colorado, USA. Noble Heart Horse was just an ordinary horse and True Heart Bear was just an ordinary black bear residing in the Northern Rockies. . ." (flashback fog)
