Come dream with me tonight
I recently mentioned The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin to some friends and decided to look it up. I remember really liking it when I watched it so many years ago (here’s the theme song – it might jog some memories), but the thing with children’s shows is that, well – they’re children’s shows. No matter how fondly I remember them, they tend to be somewhat disappointing when revisiting them as an adult – as was demonstrated by Transformers and DuckTales (yes, I’d tried watching them more recently haha).
Teddy Ruxpin’s apparently a little different since it’s highly serialised (as opposed to the standalone episode style), so it might be a really pleasant watch, but on the other hand it seems to be chock-full of the over-simplistic morals and storylines which now rather annoy me =P
I guess I’ll try see if I could preview the series first before actually considering the DVDs, haha…
edit: I managed to find the first episode somewhere online, yeah it’s a bit too kiddy at this age. I wonder if I should just leave these old shows alone, they seem to be always better in memory than upon rewatching?
