When one of his jokes goes wrong, Funshine Bear leaves Care-a-lot to find a place where his sense of humour will be appreciated. His travel takes him to Joke-a-lot, a whimsical land where humour rules and Funshine is made king! He is even given the royal sceptre guarding the magic jewels which hold the secret to Joke-a-lot's power to tickle the funny bone. Worried about their lost friend, Tenderheart, Cheer Bear and the other Care Bears track down Funshine and plead with him to return home. Will Funshine choose royal laughs or heart warming companionship? Will he stay in a land where serious is a forbidden word or go back to rainbow-filled Care-a-lot?
