In the cartoon, Teddy was an Illiop, a kind-hearted species of talking bears. Together with his "Octopede" pal Grubby, T.R. traveled from place to place searching for the secret behind a treasure of magic chrystals, each labeled with words like loyalty and friendship. Trekking into the land of Grundo, the bear and the caterpillar ran across a goofy scientist named Newton Gimmick, who joined them on their quest.
