Illiop Teddy Ruxpin (Illiops being bear-like creatures) leaves his homeland in Rillonia with his friend Grubby, an octopede insect, in search of adventure. They meet up with an inventive scientist named Dr. Newton Gimmick who accompanies them on their quest for the Treasure of Grundo. What the Trio unexpectedly find are six crystals with different meanings and powers. These crystals, however, also can enable the Monsters and Villains Organization (MAVO) to have absolute power over the land, and the leader, Quellor, wants to make sure that an Illiop never possesses the crystals. Elsewhere, a less pronounced threat also routinely besieges the Trio, which is the wannabe villain Jack Tweeg, a greedy troll who has huge hopes for joining MAVO. The sixty five episode series, based upon the tape-and-book toy bear Teddy Ruxpin, unfolds gradually, as the Trio meet up with more and more interesting and often friendly creatures and visit intriguing lands.

Did You Know?


An episode depicting Tweeg, L.B. and piles of old books was in pre-production at Atkinson Film Arts in Ottawa around Christmas 1986, with scripts trickling slowly into the layout and posing departments. Some bored posers began putting silly and risque titles to the books, expecting they would be deleted later, when the scenes were animated in Korea. A month hence, the Korean rushes returned to Ottawa and the scenes were screened to the sponsors. To everyone's shock and to Atkinson's chagrin, it was clear these inappropriate book titles remained until this point of the product. Korean animators could not understand English and didn't realize these titles were meant as a temporary joke. Atkinson's ate the cost of repairing the scenes, yet portions of the bogus titles remain in the final cut. See more »

It's all coming back to me...
16 January 2003 | by (Upstate NY, US) – See all my reviews

Oh, wow, I can't believe how long ago it was that I watched this. I think I caught the series in bits and pieces during several repetitions on a Canadian station we got from over the border on an antenna. I barely remember the show, except for the name of the protagonist and the way the other semi-heros of the show looked, but I miss it so much now. I don't think I ever appreciated it enough when I was younger. Teddy Ruxpin was one of perhaps two cartoons I watched that had a coherent storyline -- something I'm constantly searching for in comics and TV shows now. The other one was the excellent but ill-marketed cartoon Droids, which was written for a Star Wars audience of perhaps 10 or 11, but shown along with an unfocused Ewoks cartoon best for 5 or 6 year olds.

Teddy Ruxpin was, essentially, a good show, perfectly suitable for very young kids early on and then better for somewhat older kids as the solid storyline emerged. It was rather well-drawn, neither as stiff and careful as the old Transformers cartoon or as "loose" with form as current cartoons tend to be. I don't remember it being especially "funny," like Inspector Gadget, but it wasn't as preachy about things as Captain Planet or Care Bears could be. What it was, was an engaging, well-written cartoon that could hold interest without touching the throw-away or beat-until-dead jokes of most cartoons.

I find myself wishing this cartoon had continued for several more years, as I look back and see the kind of influence this - one of my best-remembered and most-favored cartoons of my young childhood - had on my interests and hobbies up to this day.
