Spotty takes the Welsh teddy bear to Mother Nature, who gives the bear special powers to help him fight evil as a superhero called SuperTed.

Assisted by Spotty, SuperTed faces the evil cowboy Texas Pete and his associates – the clumsy and idiotic overweight Bulk, and Skeleton, a cowardly, camp undead Skeleton.

The show was initially written in Welsh and shown on S4C but was soon translated into English and ran for several years on the BBC.
