Siriol and SuperTed – Page 3


A series of 12 episodes, first shown on 540 in 1982 then on BBC television in 1983. Made by Siriol Animation Ltd Produced by Roger Ficking Executive Producer and creator of SuperTed; Mike Young Directed by Dave Edwards

Series Storyline:

This is a story about an ordinary teddy bear. When he was made they found something wrong with him and threw him away, like a piece of rubbish, into an old dark storeroom. Then, from outer space, a Spottyman brought him to life with his cosmic dust. He took him to a magic cloud where Mother Nature gave him special powers. That bear became SuperTed!


SuperTed must be the best produced animated series on television. The animation is so good that Disney have bought 24 episodes for their cable channel. As SuperTed might say “Bubbling blancmange”.
