shown on BBC1
between 1989-1991, Superted was a yellow teddy-bear
thrown away by in a factory
as a reject
. However, he was saved by Spotty (an irritating yellow
guy from space
with green spot
s) who sprinkle
d him with cosmic
dust and brought him to life. Spotty took him to a cloud
where Mother Nature
gave him special power
s - and thus a superhero
Living in either a spacestation or treehouse with Spotty, Superted was an ordinary bear until the magic words were uttered, when he gained the ability to fly and a nifty red cape. As always, there were the obvious bad guys - Texas Pete (a cowboy-style figure), the obese Bulk and the camp Skeleton - who were always comfortably disposed of, with Superted and Spotty being home in time for tea, or the like.
Superted was originally written and aired on Welsh language channel S4C in the early 1980s.
