Each of the Care Bears and Care Bear Cousins has a "tummy symbol" — a picture or pattern that indicates the role or specialty of the character bearing it. Beginning with Care Bears: Oopsy Does It!, "tummy symbols" are sometimes referred to as "belly badges."
These Care Bears were the first to be introduced.
Bedtime Bear is one of the ten original Care Bears who originally appeared on American Greetings greeting cards in 1982. He made his animated debut in the very first television special, The Care Bears in The Land Without Feelings. Since then he has appeared in most of the animated incarnations of the series.
Bedtime Bear is a very sleepy bear. He helps everyone get a good night's sleep and have sweet dreams and often talks with a yawning voice. At night, he functions as Care-a-Lot's night watch bear, holding a lantern and making sure everyone is sleeping when they should be.
