Country of origin: Wales
Great cartoon from the early 80s featuring a teddy bear who was deemed defective by the factory that made him and “threw him away like a piece of rubbish”. A spotty man then brought him to life with his special ‘cosmic dust’ and took him to see Mother Nature who gave him a secret magic word which when he whispered turned him into SuperTed! Fantastic adventures ensue fighting against Texas Pete, Bulk and Skeleton. Sounds bizarre but it’s great. It was created in Wales by Mike Young who has since become the eponymous owner of the US based Mike Young Productions which produced the 2002 He-Man remake. The pictures to the right are of a recent DVD re-release.
