Storyline

In a toy factory, after being made, a teddy bear is put in a storeroom after being deposed. The teddy bear is found by a cosmic being from outer space known as Spotty Man, and Spotty Man brought the teddy bear to life with his "cosmic dust". Spotty Man took the teddy bear to Mother Nature, where Mother Nature gave the Teddy Bear, special powers which gave him the power to fight evil. The Teddy Bear became the superhero known as SuperTed. Assited by Spotty Man, SuperTed would face his evil nemesis, the evil cowboy Texas Pete and his associates, the clumsy and idiotic over weighted man Bulk and Skeleton, a cowardly undead Skeleton, as SuperTed sets out to foil Texas Pete's schemes of wealth and power and put a end to SuperTed once and for all.

How could I ever have forgotten SuperTed?
4 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

During my childhood I watched a lot of cartoons, and at 18 I was thinking the other day of cartoons I watched but I had forgotten about. SuperTed was one of them. A wonderful show, that should've lasted longer. Beautiful animation, great music, wonderful plot-lines, intelligent writing and lovable characters including SuperTed, Spotty and Skeleton are only a few things to like about the show. What made the characters lovable were that they had unique and distinct personalities and that they were very well-voiced by the likes of Jon Pertwee. I also loved the concept of SuperTed, and the well- thought out plot-lines which did really well staying consistent ensured the show stayed true to the concept. Maybe it is just me, but SuperTed has to be one of the most underrated shows out there, it was wonderful and I feel utterly ashamed for having forgotten it. 10/10 Bethany Cox
