A fun fact: In the brazillian Dub, the villain No Heart, was called Coração Gelado (the portuguese literal translation of Coldheart), so, when I saw what this episode would be about, I was sure you were gonna talk about No Heart...
Neve heard of Professor Coldheart before, wich is a shame, he sounded like an awesome villain. But i guess they didn't show many reruns of the first tv series in Brazil.
I always liked Care Bear's villains... well... I didn't like the Wizard from Carebears in wonderland, he just seemed like a Step down after ancient book of evil, and Satan. Coldheart was a fun villain, he was evil, he knew it, and he loved it. He wasn't the best villain, but he enjoyed it. No Heart, Beastly, and Shrieky, were out on a mission to specifically destory the care bears, they rarely ever seemed to have fun doing it. Cold Heart just enjoyed making other miserable and deal with the bears when they came, but he never focused on them.
Pretty cool episode, bro. Will there be a episode about The Purple Pieman Of Porcupine Peak? He's not as dangerous as Cold Heart, but he certainly makes up for it with style, sheer effort and a awesome voice.
Yup, my sis was pretty deep into Care Bears and she was the older of us two. I liked it for a while, but I definitely loved Cold Heart's little song. Still have me a copy of Land Without Feelings to this day. As a little kid I wrote cards thinking my mom was sending them to the Care Bears, the Tiny Toons, and every other toon I like; but they were actually sent towards soldiers overseas.
Also I effing love that gag with the walrus from Ren and Stimpy. XD
Okay, I'll grant Coldheart points for amusement but the thing about the Care Bears is that, I found them too happy. I'm not a fan of 80's cartoons. Though I suppose what you said is true and I can't really argue with everything you've said.
Though one can't help but wonder how would the Care Bears against more dangerous enemies, like Freddy Krueger or better yet, the Cybermen from Doctor Who considering their no emotions policy.
As for Coldheart, they didn't need the Care Bears to take him down. What kids needed to save them is James Bond. Screw Chuck Norris, Bond is the original badass. Actually, imagine how the Care Bears would take to a guy who has a licence to kill. LOL
This guy is just too hilarious to be a credible villain. Even his design is funny. I can't stop laughing at him. He's like the doofy incompentent brother of the Winter Warlock from the Rankin Bass "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" movie. The best villain from the series was clearly No Heart, and the best movie is the Second One "A New Generation," in which they give the best explanation for whence the Care Bears originated. Screw the version from the first movie. Also, the Care Bears fight SATAN! Seriously... Dark Heart is clearly a stand-in for Satan, or at least, a really powerful minion of Satan. Turning the Devil into a nice guy is a big achievement, don't you think? The problem with the show was actually the lack of villains. I liked the episodes with No Heart, Shrieky, and Beastly, the best. The others just seemed like they were doing a lot of nothing.
Something like that. No heart had all the powers of Dark heart, and even when he became things like smoke or tornado he had those same glowing evil eyes; and seemed obsessed with destroying the Care Bears. No other villain was focused on getting rid of them. They just seem so similar that either there is just two great shape shifting evils out there, or they have some sort of relation.
on the more circumstantial side: His amulet which iirc was said to be the source of his powers was a ruby, and red is of course the Color of Dark Heart. It might be sorta like Lichs where they store their soul in a amulet, which is both their power and weakness.
And Even name kinda makes sense. Dark Heart, still had a heart as cold and evil as it was, and when he was turned good, losing his powers; the result is that evil without real body, and lacking the one thing that stopped him before; a heart.
google michael....now that took long to find... -_- so much stuff with the name michael. -_- ...seems like I didnt need to look it up at all, the poster and joke explains it allready pretty well. -_- Hope Phelous never reviews it, suburbian film review was allready pretty hard to handle...
And I agree, the transformation-scene? Yeah, this also scared the shit out of me when I was a child. Oo
I just realise... his voice... sounds kinda familiar... do you know this feeling, when you watch a show in a different language and hearing a voice that you feel like you allready heard from a vocie actor of your language?
ARGH DAMMIT! Wanted to go to sleep right now, but nooooooooooo, right now you have to post finally a new FF episode, and then also about a character I haven't see for years and would love to see him again... DAMN YOU CHADROCCO!!!! XD
Oh dear god I remember this guy. My mother had this figurine of him with this Smurf collection, for the longest time I thought he was a Smurf villian. I cant tell if thats a step up or step down from his real status.
