An ending scene from "Grumpy's Three Wishes" that originally aired was cut from syndication broadcasts since 1988. The scene can still be found on "The Care Bears Family Storybook" VHS originally released in 1986 by Karl-Lorimar Home Video under the Kideo Video label.

Grumpy Bear, voiced by Bob Dermer, has successfully helped a boy named Alvin. As he sees Alvin and another boy named Freddy, as they got along, through a telescope from Care-a-Lot, Good Luck Bear, voiced by Marla Lukofsky, says Alvin learned a valuable lesson from Grumpy. Grumpy says "And someone else learned a valuable lesson from Alvin. Honesty is the best policy". Good Luck says "Who learned that lesson, Grumpy?" Grumpy responds, "Oh, never mind." Good Luck laughs as the originally aired episode ends.

Some of the PSAs are also left intact on Brazilian Portuguese DVDs of the series.
