Teddy Edward

UBER-RUDIMENTARY INFORMATHON dressed up as the adventures of a medallion-toting bear. Titular grizzly was conjured up from the minds of Patrick and Mollie Matthews in 1962, who turned him into a household name courtesy of these couldn’t-happen-now visual presentations comprising, well, a series of still photographs backed by you-must-find-this-interesting narration. A long way from the ideal bedtime story. A long way from bedtime as well.

    Got to mention that the narrator was plummy voiced Richard ‘Here Is The News’ Baker. The show was on early Saturday morning, pre-Swap-Shop, I think.
