Teddy

Teddy


Teddy is Mr. Bean's teddy bear, generally regarded as Mr. Bean's best friend. The bear is a dark brown, knitted oddity with button eyes and sausage-shaped limbs, invariably ending up broken in half or in various other states of destruction and disfiguration. Although Teddy is inanimate, Bean occasionally pretends it is alive. For example, when Mr. Bean hypnotizes Teddy, he snaps his fingers and the bear's head falls backwards as if it has fallen asleep instantly (Bean used his finger to prop Teddy's head up). Certainly, Bean behaves as if the bear is real, buying it a Christmas present or trying not to wake it in the mornings. The bear is often privy to Mr. Bean's various schemes and doubles as a good dish cloth or paint brush in an emergency; it has been decapitated ("Mr. Bean in Room 426") and shrunk in the wash ("Tee Off, Mr. Bean").

Over the years, Teddy has undergone several changes. When it debuted on 'The Trouble with Mr. Bean", it had a smaller head. Two episodes later its head reached its current size, but its "eye" wasn't present until Bean placed gold thumb tacks on its face. The "eyes" have since been replaced with two small white buttons sewn over Teddy's face, giving it a distinct image.

Appearance

Teddy is a brown, knitted teddy bear. He has white, button eyes and a black nose. His arms and legs, are long and sausage like, with white hands.

Interaction with Mr. Bean

Mr. Bean loved Teddy, and Teddy is his only friend. Teddy will go everywhere with Mr. Bean. When Mr. Bean interacts with Teddy, he often pretends he is alive. He will talk to the bear, often including him in Bean's schemes and plans. Usually, this will end up in Teddy getting hurt in some way - be that by his head being ripped off or him being cut in half. However, he always ends up ok in the end or will be back to normal in the next scene.
