Flashback: Teddy Ruxpin Commercial

Remember Teddy Ruxpin, the animatronic stuffed bear? When he talks, he has the blank affect of a psychotic killer right before the moment when he kills you. And in this commercial, he gets a friend: Grubby (the horse?), who seems to have inherited Teddy's winning personality. More evidence that the 80's were effed up.

I wanted one but I was a couple of years too old for such a toy when it came out. In retrospect, you guys are right -- it looks like its eyes would turn red in the night right before it shot beams of fire at an unsuspecting child in bed. :)

Haha, so he's a caterpillar. That's one big caterpillar! My second guess would have been giraffe!

We had roller skating Teddy Ruxpin (actually I always thought it was Ruxbin? Have I been confused all these years?) Now he was cool! Yeah, Grubby was a caterpillar.

I wanted one when I was little too! Haha. I think that "Grubby" is supposed to be a caterpiller or some other kind of bug.

I so wanted one when I was a kid, but my parents thought they were creepy. I always wanted to put one of my Paula Abdul tapes in it and watch him lipsync. :ROTFL:

There was a Teddy Ruxpin show?! I remember the dolls and that you put cassette tapes in them and that's how they talked. At 4, I thought that was the coolest thing ever.
