"Care Bears: Grizzle-ly Adventures" presents two episodes featuring the new bear in the Care Bear's neighborhood -- Grizzle. He's a mean little bear in a big robot suit who hates caring. In "Broken," when Share Bear's favorite necklace is needed to fix her robot friend, Wingnut. Share keeps the necklace and goes to Grizzle instead. Will Grizzle help her friend or make even more trouble? And in "Emma's Dilemma" things are missing all over Care-a-lot.

In "Down To Earth," Wingnut's Care Bear Transporter beams Funshine to Earth so he can teach a lonely young boy how to make friends and have fun. But then the Care Bear Transporter breaks, and unless Wingnut can fix it, Funshine won't be able to return to Care-a-Lot.
