DLT ENTERTAINMENT GETS MIPCOM 2004 IN A RUXPIN
Hit animated series Teddy Ruxpin returns to the international market
London 30 July 2004: Leading independent production and distribution company DLT
Entertainment is bringing the hit 80’s animated classic The Adventures of Teddy
Ruxpin back to the small screen. All 65 x 30’ episodes of the enduringly popular
series will be available to international buyers at MIPCOM 2004.
The cel animated series follows Teddy Ruxpin
and his friends Grubby and Dr Newton Gimmick on their quest to find the hidden
treasure of Grundo in “The Hard to Find City.” Along the way the curious trio
find six magical crystals, which unbeknownst to them give their possessors
absolute power. These crystals bring Teddy and his friends into the path of the
evil and power-hungry Monsters and Villains. Each episode sees the trio visit
exciting cities where they meet interesting and unusual creatures and pit their
wits against their foes.
Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin differs from most children’s programmes as it
narrates one continuous story rather than featuring stand-alone episodes. Each
half hour shares the common themes of adventure and friendship and teaches
children about accepting and appreciating those who are different.
When the series first aired, it held six top
ten positions in Billboard's Home Video charts and won a VSDA (Video Software
Dealers Association) Award for the Best Non-Movie Children's Program.
DLT Entertainment holds full international
rights to the series, produced by DiC and Alchemy II, and will be distributing
The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin alongside its other animated properties Going
Buggs!, Animated Classics and Little Big Mouth.
Don Taffner Jr, Vice President of DLT
Entertainment, said: “Teddy Ruxpin had a whole generation glued to their TV
screens when it was first on air and we have no doubt that it will prove as
popular with today’s youngsters. It is fantastic to be bringing such a cult hit
back to the international market.”
