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.

Victor Spinetti just died, so I wanted to review one of his credits. "SuperTed" is fairly interesting, if not great. I saw it on video a few times when I was young. It wasn't even until many years later that I learned that Victor Spinetti provided the voice of villain Texas Pete (by which point I knew Spinetti as the co-star from the Beatles' movies). In fact, providing the voice of Bulk was Spinetti's "Help!" co-star Roy Kinnear (also memorable as Mr. Salt in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory"). Reading about the show, I was surprised to learn that it comes from Wales; I've always thought that we don't hear enough about that country.
Anyway, it's an OK show. Nothing particularly special, but pretty entertaining.
