The "Teddy" Bears

by Nicholas Sammond

“Teddy” opens with a scene of a bear family – portrayed by humans in costumes – departing their house, as a young girl enters the scene and into their abode. The Goldilocks inspired short features stop-motion animation and was inspired by the incident in which Teddy Roosevelt spared a bear cub after killing its mother while hunting, giving him the famous name. Goldilocks sleeps in the bears' home, and as she is awaken by the three bears, a chase ensues wherein Goldilocks kidnaps a bear cub, until she is rescued by a huntsman in the woods.
