Meanwhile, things are looking really bad in Acme Acres. We see Buster Bunny and Babs Bunny throwing with tomatoes at the grey fence, making it dirty. It is all thanks to the shadows that are possessing them. While throwing with tomatoes, the two bunnies are laughing evilly. Up in the sky, Noble Heart Horse and True Heart Bear are in the cloud car, with Noble Heart driving it. They are both looking down and, before long, they suddenly spot Buster and Babs.
Noble Heart: Look, True Heart!
True Heart: I’ve noticed, Noble Heart! Two young poor rabbits being forced by No Heart’s shadows to throw with tomatoes at a fence.
Noble Heart: Let’s go down and stop them!
The two Care Bears go down. They get out of the cloud car and approach the possessed bunnies.
True Heart: Stop right there, shadows!
Buster and Babs stop throwing with tomatoes at the fence, before glaring at Noble Heart and True Heart. On the other hand, the shadows look surprised at the two Care Bears.
Buster and Babs: Hey!
Noble Heart and True Heart: Care Bear Stare!
Their tummy symbols fired their powers at Buster and Babs, driving the shadows away. With the shadows gone, Buster and Babs are back to normal. The two bunnies shake their heads, before looking really surprised.
Buster and Babs: Huh?!
They look at each other.
Buster: What happened?
Babs: I don’t know.
They notice the fence dirty. They then notice that they are holding tomatoes in their hands and gasp, dropping the tomatoes, before looking back at the dirty fence.
Buster: I can’t believe we did this!
Noble Heart and True Heart approach them a little more.
Noble Heart: It wasn’t your fault.
Buster and Babs turn to them.
Babs: Who are you?
Noble Heart: I’m Noble Heart Horse and this is True Heart Bear.
True Heart: We’re from the Care Bears Family.
Buster: I’m Buster Bunny.
Babs: And I’m Babs Bunny.
Buster and Babs: No relation!
Noble Heart and True Heart: Pleased to meet you!
They share a laugh.
True Heart: Are you two OK?
Babs: Yes. We think so.
Buster: But I still can’t believe we threw with tomatoes at this fence.
Noble Heart: You were possessed by some sinister shadows.
True Heart: Yes. They caused you to do bad things, like this. Luckily, Noble Heart and I used our stares to scare them away.
Buster: Thank you so much for saving us.
Noble Heart: Our pleasure. But you know something? You two are not the only ones who needed help.
True Heart: He’s right. There are many other citizens being possessed by shadows.
Babs: Oh dear. Those poor people must be saved.
Noble Heart: You don’t need to worry. The other members of the Care Bears Family are on the job.
Meanwhile on the other side of town, Grumpy, Cheer, Braveheart and Sneezer look above and below ground for shadows and possessed beings in the Cloud Car. The gang explained the situation to Sneezer.
Braveheart: Keep your eyes peeled, everyone, there's bound to be more trouble.
Sneezer points at something he's noticed.
Sneezer: (Gasps.) Looky down there.
The gang sees what Sneezer does. It's a little pink bird the mouse's size pecking people and animals on their heads.
Cheer: Who IS that?
Sneezer: (Happily.) That's Sweetie. She's a very good friend of mine! Yep, she sure is! (Sadly.) Or at least she was.
They see her chasing Bookworm aggressively down the sidewalk, through a neighbourhood.
Sweetie: You're mine!
She says in an evil tone as the green, nerdy worm runs for his life.
Grumpy: She looks like she could use a friend right now.
Braveheart: Let's go down to the ground!
Braveheart uses the Cloud Car to help his friends descend to the earth to Sweetie and Bookworm's direction. They better catch up.
Grumpy: Sweetie, stop!
Cheer: This isn't right! Friends don't eat friends!
Braveheart: Nope, they sure don't! Argh, now he's got ME doing it!
Sweetie stops and notices them.
She says as her dinner gets away. Bookworm gives her a raspberry, while taking advantage of his freedom. Now Sweetie's really mad. The gang and Sneezer get out of the Cloud Car, getting ready to execute the Care Bear Stare.
Braveheart: Alright, gang, you know what to do.
Care Bears Family: 3,2,1! Care Bear Sta...
They abort the Stare. But now they're confused.
Cheer: What's the matter?
Sneezer: Can I talk to her, please?
They allow him to do so. Sneezer looks at Sweetie in her evil eyes.
Sweetie: What do you want?!
Sneezer: C'mon, Sweetie. You don't wanna forget about our friendship, do ya? The good times, the bad times, that ABC Gum commercial?
The shadow no longer possesses Sweetie and goes away. She's back to normal, but has no idea what's going on.
Sweetie: Wha...what happened? Sneezer, who're your friends?
Cheer: I'm Cheer Bear.
Braveheart: I'm Braveheart Lion.
Cheer jabs Grumpy a little bit, so he can introduce himself.
Grumpy: (Unenthusiastically.) And I'm Grumpy.
Braveheart: And we're the Care Bears Family!
Cheer: You were under a spell.
Sweetie: I was?!
Grumpy: That's right. During that time, you were pecking people and animals on the head. And you were chasing a poor, little worm.
Sweetie: Oh, that's my friend, Bookworm. I always chase him.
Sneezer: Anyway, it's good to have ya back, Sweetie. Yep, sure is!
Sweetie: Well, it's great to be back.
The love, but stinky Fifi La Fume comes walking down the sidewalk, with a green odor slowly coming out of her tail, sniffs a flower and hums Alouette. Just then, a shadow creeps up behind her.
Cheer: Uh-oh. It looks like a shadow is about to claim another victim.
Sweetie: I don't think we need to worry about Fifi.
Sneezer (Giggles.) She can take care of herself. Yep, sure can!
The shadow tries to possess her, but it gets so close to her foul odor, turns into a cowardly yellow, then runs away.
Sneezer and Sweetie: Told ya.
Grumpy: I don't believe it.
Braveheart: How 'bout that?
Cheer: That's uhh...clever.
Sweetie: Cover your noses, everyone. Here she comes.
She walks past our friends.
Everyone else: Bonjour.
Fifi: This day is très lovely, no?
Everyone else: Yes!
It's just the six of them now.
Cheer: What a nice skunk!
Braveheart: Stinky, but nice. What do you think, Grumpy? Grump?
They notice that he's green. He faints as well.
Braveheart: What's wrong with him?!
Sweetie: He just got too close to Fifi's odor, that's all.
Braveheart: Is he gonna be alright?
Sweetie: (Mocking Sneezer.) Sure will! Uh-huh!
Everyone but Grumpy laughs, thus concluding this chapter.
