Can You Guess This TV Theme? #41 - Answer

Congratulations to Jerry from My Thoughts Brought To The Light for being the first person to correctly guess this week's TV theme!

'The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin' was an animated series that followed Teddy Ruxpin, that cute little toy bear whose mouth moved and eyes blinked as he read you stories as a child, as he leaves his home on the island of Rillonia with his best friend Grubby, the orange octopede. Together, with the help of Gimmick (a harebrained scientist they befriend during their adventure), they follow an ancient map which leads them to find a collection of crystals and Teddy's missing father....



Apparently, each episode included a short segment titled 'Protect Yourself' which ran after a teaser for the next episode and prior to the credits. It featured an animated Teddy Ruxpin on a live-action set, who would introduce contemporary child stars who would give young viewers advice on topics such as avoiding strangers and what to do in an emergency. These guest stars included the likes of Jason Bateman and Corey Feldman.... I don't remember the 'Protect Yourself' segments, but I'm planning on getting the DVD's this weekend to see if they're added as an extra!

Did you have a Teddy Ruxpin toy? I seem to remember that my Teddy Ruxpin felt like it weighed around 40 pounds.... But I was a bit smaller, so the toy probably seemed a lot bigger than it actually was....

  1. I got in trouble once for hitting a neighbor kid in the face with my Teddy Ruxpin. Yesterday sure was crazy...

  2. Never owned a Teddy Ruxpin, but I did own one of his "outfits" that my parents picked up at a second hand store. Not sure why they thought I would want the outfit and not the toy.

  5. Hilarious. My cousin had a Teddy Ruxpin but I didn't. She was an only child and got everything she wanted. She used to carry that damn bear everywhere. Bitch.

  6. I always thought "The Snorks" was my favorite childhood cartoon. Until the day I heard a recording of the supposed Snorks theme song, and I couldn't remember it to save my life. Being a musical person, something didn't jive. So I knew Teddy's theme would be foreign as well...but still cute and so fun to listen to the old show themes.

  7. I'm going to have to agree with Mr. Powdered Toast.

    I feel slightly ashamed.

  8. I remember him. I did not have him and I am sure that is why my girls have every single stuffed animal their little hearts desire :-)
