In this article we take a trip down memory lane, we look at some old Teddy Ruxpin videos, the Teddy Ruxpin theme tune and even have a look at where you can buy some of the old cartoon shows from. Plus a look at some of the cuddly toys that came out with Teddy Ruxpin. This page will basically tell you everything you need to know about Teddy Ruxpin.

The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin was the name of the original 1980’s cartoon. Some people may falsely search for Teddy Ruck Spin but the actual name is Ruxpin and not Ruck Spin. So now let’s look at the history of the cartoon and take a trip down memory lane.

The Adventrues Of Teddy Ruxpin

The cartoon known as The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin ran from 1987-1988. This short lived cartoon series was about the adventures of a bear named Teddy Ruxpin. Along with his best friend Grubby he leaves his homeland of Rillonia and teams up with an inventor named Newton Gimmick. Now the team set sail on a magic airship in search of the treasures of Grundo. Of course things don’t always go to plan and they get competition from the evil Jack Tweeg who will do anything to stop Teddy and his friends.

The series was 65 episodes long and followed a continuous storyline. Each episode was a mini story in itself though and there were lots of heart warming characters introduced and plenty of magical lands that Teddy, Grubby and Newton Gimmick visited. The series was played in various countries around the world and became something of a cult classic. Sometimes you still see the old cartoons being played on some of the lesser well known children’s channels.

Teddy Ruxpin The Bear

The Cartoon series spurned a massive demand for the cuddly little bear. In the early days a company called world of wonder produced the toys, but in 1990 they sold the rights to Hasbro. They brought out a few more versions of the toys. Later in 1998 another line of Teddy Ruxpin toys was introduced and then again in 2005 more toys were put on the market. Over the years Teddy Ruxpin has sold very well and is no doubt still played with by children all over the world.

The thing that made the Teddy Ruxpin bears so popular was the fact that it was more than just a bear. The Teddy Ruxpin toys were interactive, so basically you were buying a talking bear. You could even buy other characters which supposedly interacted along with Teddy. These were very popular for a while and were big sellers. Although there are no companies that still produce these toys they are still popular and you can still pick them up on Amazon.
