Remember When: Teddy Ruxpin

Teddy Ruxpin was ahead of it's time when it started talking in the late 80's. But it apparently isn't ahead of the times enough to not creep kids out these days. 

Today is Teddy Bear Day, so we decided to throw it back to the OG (that's original gangster) of teddy bears... TEDDY RUXPIN!

For a reminder, here's the Teddy Ruxpin commercial:

Teddy Ruxpin Commercial

This is an old Teddy Ruxpin commercial I remember from when I was a kid. This boy was just trying to share his Teddy Ruxpin with all these kids for show n' tell but all those stupid kids laughed at him when he said his Teddy Ruxpin could talk.



While looking into Mr. Teddy Ruxpin, we ame across a video of modern-day children reacting to 80's toys, and the kids are so evolved in the video below, that they think that his songs are too long, that he's evil, and he's kind of annoying. But it's funny to see their reactions while seeing it! THESE KIDS ARE BRUTAL!

By looking at this, it's clear to see where Seth MacFarlane got the idea for Ted...

Ted - Trailer Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane brings his boundary-pushing brand of humor to the big screen for the first time as writer, director and voice star of Ted. In the live action/CG-animated comedy, he tells the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish...and has refused to leave his side ever since.
