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.

My go to show when I am sick
1 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

When I was a kid, a single VHS tape with six episodes of SuperTed came in a backpack I got at a yard sale. That tape is one of my most prized possessions. The characters are amazing, and the story lines are pretty nuts. Whenever I get sick and have to stay home, SuperTed, soup and juice are the remedy. I still have the entire opening sequence memorized. That opener is actually the origin story, and it is gloriously 80s. The premise of this show is really original, and the execution is exactly what the viewer would never expect. Even the plastic cassette jacket is unusual. It looks like a regular old Disney VHS jacket, but it weighs a lot more. All in all, one of the best pieces of 80's cartoonery of all time.
