The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin is the immensely successful 65 x 22’ series that was part of the $7 billion retail property of the late 1980’s and 1990’s and one of TIME magazine’s top 100 properties of all time. The series features a young Teddy Ruxpin and his best friend, Grubby, who follow an ancient map that leads them to a collection of crystals on the mainland of Grundo.

“The beloved Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin is as relevant as ever to today’s kids – a fantasy world of adventure, humor and love,” commented Scott-Hansen. “Teddy Ruxpin developed a keen and loyal following in the late eighties and early nineties, and now Amazon Prime will deliver this beautifully remastered HD series to audiences everywhere to engage a whole new base of fans.”
