|Come dream with Teddy Ruxpin and his wonderful friends as they set out in search of the long lost treasure of Grundo! The adventure begins when Teddy finds an old-fashioned treasure map and talks his very reluctant pal Grubby into joining him. Grubby isn't too sure he made the right choice once he realizes that the evil Tweeg and his nasty associates the Bounders will be after them every step of the way, but there's no arguing with Teddy Ruxpin once he sets his mind on a goal! |
Things get even crazier when the M.A.V.O. (that's the Monsters and Villains Organization, of course!) gets on their tail, but Teddy and his friends never lose sight of what's important – and what's important is having fun! That's not a bit hard with friends like absent-minded inventor Newton Gimmick, Leota the winged Woodsprite, Prince Arin and Princess Aruzia of Grundo, the adorably penguin-like Fobs and the wacky Wooly What's-It on their side! Together, these humorous heroes embark on a 65-part adventure that brings them something far more valuable than mere gold in the end! What could that be? Join Teddy Ruxpin and find out!
Teddy Ruxpin began his life as a talking bear toy designed by inventor and author Ken Forsse. Made with realistically moving eyes and lips, Teddy was a born storyteller, and made a lot of friends in 1985 and 1986, when he was the best-selling toy on the market! That's a pretty impressive accomplishment for a bear, but Ken Forsse knew that there was even more to Teddy's story! It turns out that the lovable creature isn't really a bear at all, he's an Illiop (a friendly species that does bear a marked resemblance to Earth bears!) and he lives in the strange land of Grundo, where almost anything can happen – and it usually does! Teddy got his own TV show in the fall of 1987. The series was different from most other cartoon series, in that the plot is continuous and develops across all 65 episodes. It's a timeless classic for children to watch again and again.
