  • Episode Description
  • A disagreement causes Funshine Bear to leave Care-A-Lot and look for someplace where his jokes will be appreciated without hurting anyone's feelings. It's the type of thing that probably could be resolved with an apology and a little listening, but intentions are misinterpreted in the heat of the moment. As Funshine Bear ends up being crowned king of a village called Joke-A-Lot, a group of his friends work to bring him back to Care-A-Lot. None of them, however, realize that they're playing right into the plan of a villain called "Funnybone."moreless

    • Introduces some new looks to some of the Bears. Champ is a new color (originally golden brown, now blue) and a modified tummy symbol (the trophy used to have a heart symbol, but now has a star). Share Bear has a new tummy symbol (originally a fountain milkshake, now two suckers).

    • Introduces Laugh-a-Lot Bear.

    • The deleted scenes included on the DVD are: Laugh If You Want To!, Caring Is Serious Business, Which Way to Funshine?, I Wonder..., Packs-A-Magic! and Unpacks-A-Magic! and The Great Escape. The first four are in storyboard form and the two "Magic" ones are in rough CGI. The final one is in full CGI. There is also a short introduction from the director in which he encourages viewers to try and guess where the scenes would have been in the movie, had they been included.

    • Funnybone: Open the pod bay doors, Pal.
      Pal: I'm afraid I can't do that, Dave.
      The computer in Joke-A-Lot refers to Funnybone as Dave, setting up for this gag. This is a dead-on reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey, in which the main character Dave makes the exact same request of the computer HAL 9000 and it tells him "I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that."

    • Funnybone: When this is over, I'm getting a real henchman. A parrot or something.
      Griping about his moronic fly henchmen, the film's villain references the Disney classic Aladdin, in which the villain Jafar was always accompanied by his loud-mouthed, evil parrot, Iago.
