As for the series itself, it's a given that this is a must-have for any Teddy Ruxpin fan. And for those who are less familiar with the series, it's pretty typical of 80's cartoons, but has a few unique aspects to it. The plot is continuous and develops across all 65 episodes, which certainly makes it a lot more interesting than most other 80's cartoons. The first five episodes (which were released to VHS years ago as a seperate movie) are absolutely fantastic and should be seen and studied by any fan of the 80's. The story slows down a little after that, and you get to enjoy the plot thickening and deepening as it gains momemtum toward a great ending.
Teddy is a great role model for kids and every episode teaches good values. The series is filled with great music and songs, and several of the episodes are real gems. It is very much an underrated show.
I was worried when I first bought this series that it might be too juvinile for me to enjoy in my adulthood as I've found some of my old favourite cartoons shows do not age well like Thundercats; however, the best surprize I've had while rediscovering Teddy Ruxpin is just how well it is written. This is a show for youngsters so there is no blood, lots of talking about emotions, and LOTS of singing; however none of the "pappy" stuff gets in the way of the story telling. There is still plenty of action in every episode and the comedic relief provided by the shows arch nemesis Tweeg and L.B. is priceless.
If you're looking for some family-safe fun to enjoy with imaginative toddlers or if you are just looking to reconnect with a truely wonderful and innocent piece of your childhood look no further than Teddy!
The only problem I have with the set is its extras. One, there aren't any special features besides the interactive menus and various language settings. Two, the box that the DVD sets come in is very flimsy and looks like it could break anytime, even though it was new and still in its packaging. Also, the DVDs themselves come in the hard cases which is nice, but inside, the discs are in separate sleeves that are not attached to anything. As a collector of movies, this most likely will not be too detrimental to the longevity of the discs as far as I am concerned; however, if you have children I could see theses sleeves and main box getting damaged or lost quite easily.
Even though there are a couple minor problems, this set is definitely worth watching again as an adult, or for the first time for your children.
