Yay! Most all of the classic "Care Bears" cartoons from the '80s have been released to DVD.
Care Bears had 3 specials aired in the 1980s, all of which have also been released to DVD.
"Care Bears in The Land Without Feelings" (1983 special that started the whole animation phenomenon; of course, the characters were around even before that as greeting cards characters.)
http://www.amazon.com/Care-Bears-Land-Without-Feelings/dp/B0013RF9VE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1355762070&sr=8-1&keywords=Care+Bears+in+The+Land+Without+Feelings

Then there was "The Care Bears Battle The Freeze Machine" (1984 special, released as a special feature on the 1985 "The Care Bears Movie" reissue onto DVD in 2007.)
http://www.amazon.com/Care-Bears-Movie-Georgia-Engel/dp/B000LP6KM6/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1355762358&sr=1-1&keywords=The+care+bears+movie

Then there's the 1988 "Care Bears: Nutcracker Suite". This was released to DVD as "Care Bears: The Nutcracker" in 2006.
http://www.amazon.com/Care-Bears-Nutcracker/dp/B000HOJR6C/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1355762497&sr=1-1&keywords=Care+Bears%3A+The+Nutcracker

On to the actual cartoon series from the 1980s. The first series was simply called "Care Bears" and started in 1985. It was a syndicated series from DIC and ran for 1 season of 22 episodes. This entire series has been released to DVD under the title "Care Bears: Care-A-Lot Collection" back in 2008.
http://www.amazon.com/Care-Bears-Care---Lot-Collection/dp/B00191AEY6/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1355761877&sr=1-1&keywords=Care+Bears%3A+Care-A-Lot+Collection

The second series was called "The Care Bears Family" and ran on ABC from 1986-1988. These episodes were produced by Nelvana. It ran for 3 seasons.
Just recently, Lionsgate released the majority of these Nelvana episodes to DVD in a collection entitled "Care Bears: The Original Series Collection".
http://www.amazon.com/Care-Bears-Original-Series-Collection/dp/B008QE9UWG/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1355761108&sr=8-6&keywords=Care+Bears

However, this is NOT all episodes of the series. But it does include the 1988 special "Care Bears: Nutcracker Suite" as a bonus.
Lionsgate has released a number of DVD discs with a few random episodes of the Nelvana series and this collection basically brings almost all of them together. The two previous releases that were left out are "Give Thanks" and "King of the Moon".
Even so, I am not sure if all episodes of the Nelvana series have been released to DVD amongst all these releases. For someone not totally familiar with the show, it's kinda hard to tell.
Wikipedia indicates that all the Nelvana episodes have been released to DVD in chronological order in Australia however. (Region 4).
