Here I am again, and with a request.
Hi, here I am stopping in again! I know there's not much activity here, but I'm glad to see there is some! There's a fanfic? Can't wait to check it out!
Now for the request. I wonder if someone could provid me with a picture of Princess Aruzia that I could use for a profile picture on Facebook? There's a campaign going on until Monday to put a cartoon picture from childhood in support of child abuse awareness. I wanted to use Princess Aruzia since, A. she's a character from my childhood, and B. she was kidnapped, which kind of counts as abuse in my mind. So can anyone link me to one? Thanks!
Oh, and a long time ago I mentioned some online interviews with people involved in the series. Here's a link to the one with Ken Forsse, and you can find the others easily from there. If there's still anyone who's interested, that is.

Hi new...
This place look a little dead. Been awhile since people posted here huh? I suppose all the action is in forums.

I'm just a major fan of Teddy Ruxpin, and 80's stuff in general. And I'm writing a Teddy Ruxpin fanfic, on fanfiction.net under the same username as this. Warning for kids, there will probably be violence and such in my fic, its Teen rated. But I don't seem to be getting hits so I thought, maybe, to find readers. Don't know the rules here, but won't link the fic here without a thumbs up first. Sound good?

Glad I'm here! :) Need to be more TR fans!

I know the MAVO song by HEART!
This is a sweet com. I'm glad to see that there are others out there who love this show! I still think the Teddy Ruxpin is one of the best carttons out there. I mean besides being ahead of its time with PC stuff, it had an ongoing plot with really wicked characters.

Some Great TR finds!
Hi, I notice that there's not too much going on here, but I like the idea of this com, and would like to try and keep it alive. The other day, while looking something up for a friend, I found a treasure. I remembered several years ago in college reading an interview with Ken Forsse, the man behind the idea of Teddy Ruxpin. I thought my friend would like it, so I looked, and not only was it there, but there were others as well! These include animaters, as well as the voice behind the illiop, Phil Baron. I'm not going to post the link, as I don't know but this may constitute spamming, but they are on Teddy Ruxpin online. Enjoy!

First, my TR history!Collapse )

Speculation
I was going through some old stuff in the file cabinet when I came across a folder labeled "Teddy Ruxpin," and on the front was written "All tested, A-I 100%. Also new, never used!!!" Curious, I started going through the folder page by page, and discovered the contents were all photocopied material from the 1996/97 Toy Faire. I honestly have NO idea where all of this came from, but I found some pretty interesting things listed, and uploaded a few pictures so you could see for yourself:

This is the front page of the packet. Those Lil' Boppers are too cute! :3

An ordering list. I'm glad I got my Mother Goose for free! 0_o

A brief explanation of how to identify the talker's special cassette tapes. Wholes!?!? XD

But what I found next really got me curious:

A list of toys for sale. Note a New Mother Goose from PlaySkool (or Play School as they put it) is listed.

One page out of many listing all the book and tape sets for each toy. Again, New Mother Goose by PlaySkool? They even have a list of books and tapes for her, too, and... they don't have any for Teddy?...

So, I started looking around on the internet and could NOT find a single bit of information on PlaySkool's "New Mother Goose." Judging by the papers, there obviously was one made, possibly even before they did Teddy since there wasn't even a list of book/tape sets for him yet. But what I want to know is... what happened? If anyone has info on a PlaySkool Mother Goose I'd really appreciate it. :)

Oh, and there are many other pages I didn't bother copying, and if you want one feel free to email me at blueoctopede@mindspring.com. There are a bunch of product lists, and lists of all known WOW merchandise as well as book/tape sets for nearly every talker made! It'd be something to have if you're trying to get all the book/tape sets or outfits for Mickey Mouse or Teddy or Pamela or anything else.

My sister an I have been working on this site for a while, but haven't updated it recently. It is our MAVO site. On it are icons, pics, a MAVO member quiz, rules and regulations according to Bognostroclum, and more. Soon I want to put up my 44 page comic which has my characters in the Tedddy Ruxpin universe, but I doubt it'll happen soon.

here's the link

and if you can't get to it through that, try my site's address
at the bottom left will be a link.

Teddy update
In case yall haven't noticed, Teddy has been officially released and is in stock at most Target stores in the US. As far as I can tell, all they have available is the basic set of Teddy with two story cartridges and books. So if you weren't able to pre-order (which doesn't make much of a difference since Backpack Toys is a year late in shipping them) you better grab them before they're all gone! ;) (...or before the company goes bankrupt. Has anyone else noticed that Teddy seems to have a really bad affect on his makers? First WOW goes out of buisness, then he flunks out with Playskool since he was so poorly made, then YES! goes belly-up... Maybe its a curse! *gasp*)

imdb Teddy trivia
i was probably the last one to read this, but i'll post it anyway because it made me laugh out loud (and at work) ...

An episode depicting Tweeg, L.B. and piles of old books was in pre-production at Atkinson Film Arts in Ottawa around Christmas 1986, with scripts trickling slowly into the layout and posing departments. Some bored posers began putting silly and risque titles to the books, expecting they would be deleted later, when the scenes were animated in Korea. A month hence, the Korean rushes returned to Ottawa and the scenes were screened to the sponsors. To everyone's shock and to Atkinson's chagrin, it was clear these inappropriate book titles remained until this point of the product. Korean animators could not understand English and didn't realize these titles were meant as a temporary joke. Atkinson's ate the cost of repairing the scenes, yet portions of the bogus titles remain in the final cut.

Oops!
The file on the link I posted is corrupt and is unuseable. Click here for a direct link to download the working version.
The file is non-corrupt and virus free. Enjoy!!! :D

I'm sorry I had to post this as a new entry. For some reason, LiveJournal wouldn't let me edit what I had originally posted... Oh well, I guess all websites have strange glitches now and then ;)

Teddy Ruxpin computer game!
There's a new game out called Gobs of Fobs. From what I can tell, it's a checkers style game, where you move the Fobs from one side of the board to the other, while under a time limit. Here's some info. from strategyinformer.com:
"It's springtime and that means one thing in the land of Grundo: Springtime Singtime. The annual event to celebrate the arrival of spring is here and the fobs are celebrating with one of their favorite games!

Position the brightly colored fobs on the game board to match up like colors and advance in level before the timer runs out!

Features:
• Beautifully rendered 3D environments that let you visit the magical land of Grundo, where Teddy Ruxpin and his friends live!

• Three different game modes to keep your brain teased!

• Two different difficulty settings, Normal for the beginner and Hard for the expert puzzle gamers!

• Official music and voices from the Teddy Ruxpin series!"

So far, that's the only place I've found info. on the game. If you ask me, it looks pretty snazzy :)
If you want to see screenshots of the game and/or download the free demo, click here.

Tomorrow is the Day!
I don't know how many, if any brick and morter stores are going to carry them, but technically tomorrow is the official day of the release of Teddy Ruxpin DVDs vol 1 and 2! I've also ordered them through Amazon, so if I can't find them anywhere else hopefully they'll arrive from Amazon pretty quickly. Also, it's interesting that if you look at Teddy Ruxpin DVD releases on Amazon, there are now 4 listings - the expected ones for today, and the same DVDs from a different company to be released next May at half the price. I wonder what's going on...

I also noticed that the DVDs used to be listed on Bestbuy.com for preorder, but now they don't have any listing that I can find at all. I hope they actually get released this month.

*sigh*
I recieved this email from BackPack Toys just last night:

Dear ----,
Thank you for placing your Teddy Ruxpin order at teddyruxpin.com.
Yesterday, I received the unfortunate news that we will not be able to ship Teddy Ruxpin orders this year. We had a delay with our overseas supplier and therefore cannot ship Teddy until February 1, 2006. I wanted to tell you this immediately as I understand you may have to make new holiday gift-giving plans.
I offer my sincere apologies for this delay. On top of being a tremendous inconvenience to you, I understand your disappointment in not having the opportunity to share the magic of Teddy Ruxpin with a special someone this holiday.
If you would like to keep your Teddy Ruxpin order, as a token of our appreciation for your patience and understanding, you will receive a limited edition Teddy Ruxpin signed by the toy’s inventor, Ken Forsse when your order ships. If you decide to keep your order, we will not charge your credit card until your order ships on or before Feburary 1, 2006.
If you decide to cancel your order, please reply to this email and we’ll take care of it immediately.
As you may already know, when you ordered your Teddy Ruxpin online, Airship and Treasure Series One, were included in the box set. Treasure Series One is a bonus software package and is available for free to our online preorder customers only. You will still receive your bonus software.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. We appreciate your business and your support of Teddy Ruxpin.
Respectfully,


William Rosenberger
Chief Executive Officer
BackPack Toys

DO NOT cancel your order!!!!!

More on First National and Teddy on DVD...
Recently jcaliff brought us the press release and web links for the First National DVD release. I decided to add that information to the Adventures Of Teddy Ruxpin Wikipedia article, and decided to push an update to the First National page as well. In looking through the other press releases on their site, I've been able to ascertain what I would consider some good news and some bad news.

The bad news first...

The DVDs are billed as "push to play" with no special or bonus features.

Now the good news...

The family DVD line is listed at $5.99 per release. At five episodes per volume, this works out to be $1.20 an episode.

Personally, I'm still disappointed the release isn't through SHOUT! Factory. Now that Teddy is an acquired property, it's not like some other company is going to pick it up and do a different release without some kind of massive sales figures. Any kind of documentary, interviews with creators, storyboards, anything like that, won't have a chance to happen until DVD is superseded. That having been said, $78 to acquire the entire series seems reasonable to me given the price-per-episode ratio, although it will take up a lot of shelf space.

The real question, at this point, is where FNP will be sourcing the DVD master from. If they go back to the original 16mm prints I will, in fact, love them forever. Even if they use the original DiC 1" distribution masters it won't be too bad...
