Care Bears: Oopsy Does It! is a computer-animated film released on August 4, 2007 by 20th Century Fox and Kidtoon Films.[3] It was developed by American Greetings as part of the Care Bears' 25th anniversary, and produced by SD Entertainment (creators of Make Way for Noddy).[5] Oopsy is the first Care Bears film made by a studio other than Nelvana, the Canadian company responsible for the previous feature-length installments and most of the television episodes. The movie was released on DVD on October 23, 2007.[4] This film serves as a pilot episode of Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot.

Unlike the previous two movies where the starring Care Bear narrates the DVD menu (Funshine Bear for Journey to Joke-A-Lot and Wish Bear for The Big Wish Movie), this movie does not have a narrated DVD menu.

Plot

Oopsy, Cheer, Funshine, Share and Grumpy are building WooHoo World, Care-a-Lot amusement park. Everyone has a job on the building of the park and Oopsy's job is painting the tracks of the Funderbolt ride. He had completed one part of the tracks but realized that he was stuck. Suddenly, he slips into the paint and ruins part of the park. The other bears, watching Oopsy's little "oopsy", notice that they have more work to do and need more help from their other friends. Then Cheer, Share, Funshine and Oopsy decided to try the Funderbolt ride. After the ride, Oopsy stumbles and makes a chain reaction with plenty of disaster on the way that leaves Grumpy and the others wondering if they can fix Oopsy's disaster in time for the grand opening. Oopsy feels guilty for his actions and he wants to help his friends. Funshine recommends that Oopsy place the placing signs all around Care-a-Lot, this keeps Oopsy from causing any more trouble. Cheer gives Oopsy a special whistle in case he needs her help.

Meanwhile, a mean bear called Grizzle, who doesn't understand the Care Bears and their "caring stuff", has a new plan to conquer Care-a-lot. He creates a "ride" called the "CareTaker" that steals the Care Bears' belly badge. But he needs three ingredients to make the CareTaker work: a shiny sunshine (Funshine's symbol), a powerful stormy cloud (Grumpy's symbol) and a colorful rainbow (Cheer's symbol). He sends out Wingnut on a mission to Care-a-Lot to get the three ingredients. When Wingnut meets Oopsy, they became friends. So, Wingnut takes his new friend to Grizzle's lair. Grizzle learned that Oopsy is worried about the rides being finished in time for the grand opening. He tells Oopsy that he created a new ride but in return, Oopsy will gather the sunshine, the stormy cloud and the rainbow.

Oopsy and Wingnut return to Care-a-Lot and later come back to Grizzle's lair with the sunshine and the storm cloud but Grizzle isn't happy with the rainbow that's painted on Oopsy's backside and says that they need a "real" rainbow. Oopsy uses the whistle to call Cheer. But, when Cheer slides on her rainbow, she thinks she hates Grizzle's lair and when she's sucked into the CareTaker, it steals her badge (the colorful rainbow). Grizzle locks Oopsy and Cheer into a cage and he tells them about his plans of get all the belly badges of all the Care Bears and conquer Care-a-Lot, and he leaves.

Oopsy feels bad about the situation, but Cheer cheers him and helps him figure out a solution to save the day. Suddenly, Oopsy sees one of his tools and uses it to open the bars. When Oopsy and Cheer returned to Care-a-Lot, they saw that Grizzle stole all the Care Bears' belly badges and has stored them a translucent ball. Grizzle announced his intentions to use belly badge magic to conquer Care-a-Lot, but when he tries, the magic doesn't work for him. Oopsy pointed out that the magic works only for the Care Bears and those who care. Grizzle then tries to use the Funderbolt ride to destroy the belly badges. Oopsy repeats the chain reaction of disaster and manages to save the belly badges in time. However, Grizzle managed to destroy the ball himself. All the Care Bears get upset about the situation. Oopsy then urges every Care Bear to hold each other and remember who they are and how much they care. The magic comes back, as well the belly badges to every Care Bear excluding Oopsy, who drew his own. Wingnut decides to stay with the Care Bears and sends Grizzle to his lair. The next day, when WooHoo World in opened, Grumpy names a newly added part of the Funderbolt, the "Oopsy Loopsy", and it is a corkscrew-like thing.

In addition to Oopsy in the title role, Amigo Bear, Best Friend Bear, Do-Your-Best Bear, and Surprise Bear also make their movie debuts in this film. True Heart Bear also makes her first movie appearance since Care Bears Movie 2: A New Generation.
