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.

Although there are no companies that still produce these toys they are still popular and you can still pick them up on Amazon.
