Beware of the big bad teddy bear!
13 October 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

"Ursa Minor" one of the more clever and feel good hearted episodes of "TFTD" in which it ends with a strange growl! It centers around a little girl who cherishes her stuffed animal teddy bear, something that many of us can remember relating to as a child when we liked certain material things like toys, imaginary friends, and stuffed animals. Only in this case this teddy bear seems evil and cruel as it's presence seems to make bad things happen in the house. And a cruse of sickness is put upon her dad. Only in the end a growl and tear thru the wall prove that this teddy has turned into one big bad bear with some howling and fangs! Overall good clever episode!
