Storyline

In a toy factory, a newly-made teddy bear is put in a storeroom after being found to be defective. 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. Assisted by Spotty Man, SuperTed would face his evil nemesis, the evil cowboy Texas Pete and his associates, a clumsy and idiotic overweight man known as 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.

One fantastic cartoon that should be brought back
28 December 2007 | by andy5955See all my reviews

When I was small, I watched a single episode of this on a video and fell in love with it. Years later, when videos had been replaced by CDs, I forgot about it until recently. However, it has gone away quietly and no one even talks about it anymore. Why waste such a perfectly good cartoon? It had wonderful (though sometimes not logical) plots and good voice acting. The character of a teddy bear could appeal to all age groups. I personally feel that they should bring him back to the land of the living and not let him be forgotten. Some cartoons are forgotten, others are brought back again by those who created them. This is one cartoon that should be aired on TV again.
