Care BearsA whole new generation is about to get to know the Care Bares. Those cuddly, cartoon bears with pretty pictures on their stomachs are returning to TV in a new CGI series.

The new show, which will launch next year, will mark the 30th anniversary of the 1980s childhood staple.

"The Care Bears are not just a piece of '80s pop culture, but an enduring and still beloved properties whose messages of caring and sharing are as relevant today as they were when the property was first introduced," Gabrielle Oliff, marketing director for American Greetings Properties, said in a statement. "By producing a new television series, we are excited to help moms who grew up with the Care Bears share them with their own children."

The Care Bears were launched by American Greetings for use in greeting cards and later transitioned to TV and toys. Along with the new series, Hasbro will launch a new toy line.

No word on what network will air the new show, but the Hollywood Reporter wagers The Hub as a good bet. The Hub has been branding itself a home for family-friendly programming and has a presence on the American Greetings Care Bears site.

The Care Bears last appeared on TV in 2008 in the CBS series 'Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-lot.'
