36 x 10 minute episodes
A teddy bear is put in the storeroom of a toy factory where he is found by a cosmic being from outer space, known as Spotty, who brings the bear to life with his “cosmic dust”.
Spotty (voiced by Jon Pertwee) 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 (voiced by Derek Griffiths) faces the evil cowboy Texas Pete (voiced by Victor Spinetti) and his associates – the clumsy and idiotic overweight Bulk (Roy Kinnear), and Skeleton (Melvyn Hayes), 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.
