The Care Bears are the antagonists of the short "Care Bear Genocide" on Robot Chicken.
They are a set of anthropomorphic characters created by American Greetings in 1981 for use on greeting cards. The original artwork for the cards was painted by artist Elena Kucharik. In 1983, Kenner turned the Care Bears into plush teddy bears. Each bear comes in a different color and has a specialized insignia on its belly that represents its duty and personality. This insignia was known as their "tummy symbol". However, the latest movie Oopsy Does It! (2007) controversially renamed them "belly badges". Adding to the Care Bear family are the "Care Bear Cousins," which feature a lion, monkey, penguin, rabbit, and other such animals created in the same style as the teddy bears.

In the Sketch
The sketch starts with the Care Bears in Care-a-Lot contemplating on killing the Care Bear Cousins due to them being deemed impure to the Care Bears. They then kill Lotsa Heart Elephant after he was eavesdropping on their plans. After his murder, they all invite the Cousins to a party, while in actuality, they were really going to massacre them. After killing all the Care Bears Cousins, the bears begin to celebrate. Their celebration is cut short, however, when the Groundskeeper-in-the-Sky witnesses what they had done, and punishes them and converts their land into a place similar to New Jersey. The sketch then ends with the narrator talking about the history of New Jersey.

- Over 40 million Care Bears were sold between 1983 and 1987, and during the decade, American Greetings printed over 70 million of their cards. In whole, the sales of their merchandise reached over $2 billion during the 1980s. This made them one of the most successful toy lines of its time, alongside My Little Pony and Transformers.
