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.

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 »
I can't believe that it is almost 20 years, since the Teddy Ruxpin idea first surfaced. The 1986-1987 TV cartoon series was what got me hooked on the phenomenon. It is sad that it lasted only one year and new episodes never came to be to continue the adventures of the Illiop and his friends. It is very sure that Quellor and MAVO would have continued their quest to stop Teddy from achieving the goal of getting the seven crystals back to the Hard-To-Find City. Also, I have to assume that Teddy's new quest was to find all the other Illiops in the world to unify against what could be "the world's ultimate evil." The ancient writings are the clue to my assumption.
Anyway, in a remote sense, the show may return to the TV and, maybe, be made into DVD.
