Don’t tell the Spotty man but Superted has a new friend. A stop motion predecessor of the superhero teddy idea
Children's 1975 9 mins
Where’s Spotty, Bulk and Texas Pete? Before the SuperTed we know and love hit the screen, Cosgrove Hall experimented with their own superhero teddy idea. Realised in stop-motion, it visually has more in common with Chorlton and the Wheelies than the cel animated Siriol production that went on to greater fame. This pilot episode has no titles and credits and was digitised from the original negatives.
