Care Bears: Journey to Joke-a-Lot is an animated children's movie released in 2004 and featuring the famous Care Bears cast of characters. While there were three full-length feature films starring the Care Bears released before this one, there was a gap of 15 years between this film and the previous one. Journey to Joke-a-Lot featured computer animation, the voice talents of Julie Lemieux and the direction of Mike Fallows, who also worked on Babar: The Movie and multiple well-known animated television shows. In this film, the main character is Funshine Bear, whose main personality trait is his love of jokes and laughter. One day, however, one of his pranks on Grumpy Bear gets taken too seriously, and the resulting argument sends Funshine off to try and find a place where he will fit in better than he thinks he does at home. Of course, not all is as it seems, and Funshine gets taken advantage of in his new surroundings. The resulting messages about friendship, forgiveness, and acceptance are geared toward young audiences. The film was so well-received that a sequel appeared a year later titled The Care Bears' Big Wish Movie.
