SUPERTED: Royal favourite TV show is to return in 2023
A Children's TV favourite that was adored by the Royals is coming back!
SuperTed told the story of a teddy bear with magic powers. More than 35 years since his last show, his creators are set to sprinkle magic dust over SuperTed again and recreate him for a new audience. Work on new episodes is expected to start later this year.
Mike Young, the creator of the show, said that it is hoped SuperTed will be back on TV screens by 2023. His production firm also wants Hollywood's Welsh acting stars like Michael Sheen, Rhys Ifans and Ioan Gruffudd to help narrate the revamped show and voice characters like sidekick Spotty and baddie Texas Pete. The teddy bear - powered by Spotty's cosmic dust and Mother Nature's special powers - was beamed to 128 different countries and dubbed into 32 different languages before the last episode in 1986.
