The pint-sized bear appeared in a public awareness video called Supersafe with SuperTed to promote road safety.
If your school didn't show you this animated short then clearly they wanted you to get hit by a car (yes you read that correctly, your school wanted to see you mowed down by a pickup truck).
Supersafe with SuperTed was commissioned by the Central Office of Information in 1986 and featured the voice talents of Derek Griffiths, John Pertwee and Wendy Padbury as SuperTed, Spotty and Blotch, respectively.
The film demonstrated the best ways to cross a road and was actually a very important piece of animation (heck, I still think about it to this day when crossing the street). If you have kids, nieces or nephews, then it might be wise to show them this film next time they're bored, as it could really make all the difference to their futures. As SuperTed pointed out at the end of the animated short, he can't always be around to save you, but thanks to this little film maybe he doesn't need to be.
