Storyline

Illiop Teddy Ruxpin (Illiops being bear-like creatures) leaves his homeland in Rillonia with his friend Grubby, an octopede, in search of adventure. They meet up with an inventor named 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 W. Tweeg, a greedy Troll-half Grunge 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.

Let Teddy rise again for todays generation
22 February 2006 | by SrananblokeSee all my reviews

It's like having a "my first Sony" at the age of 7 or 8. That is the feeling Teddy Ruxpin brings back to me. This was the first cartoon series that slipped into my young mind and brought me the introduction to a lovely human-created fantasy world containing rare species of animals living in a world a young kid only can dream about. Whether you were looking for love, adventure or humor; Teddy Ruxpin and his friends/enemies brought it all. Quellor, the big boss of the MAVO (MESO in Dutch) was frightening, Grubby was funny, and I have to admit...I had quite a crush on Princess Aruzia :) Now that the first series have been released on DVD in the US and Canada, I hope Europe will be next. Here in the Netherlands, the series were broadcasted on VARA public TV at the end of the 80's, and later in the 90's on the Dutch children's network Kindernet and the Dutch edition of Nickelodeon.

Nowadays, when I see the crap channels like Jetix and Nickelodeon are broadcasting, I look back at the good ol' days of children's television, a time when cartoons were not only funny and thrilling, but also highly educative and gave children the opportunity to create their own personal fantasy world, a good bunch of cartoons and other children's TV series as a result. The release of the complete Teddy Ruxpin series on DVD in North America (and hopefully soon in Europe) is in that way not only suitable for all young adults grown up with this great adventure, but also for the current young MTV/Nickelodeon generation. Let them experience the adventures we encountered when we were young, made in a time when cartoons were nothing but cartoons, but in a way no other cartoon of today can compete with!
