Misery Bear.. Will his pain never end?

November 28, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Not sure I want to make a habit of writing about teddy bears, but this one merits a post I think….

Misery Bear is “a borderline alcoholic with anger management issues (and) is the saddest, loneliest, most suicidal teddy bear in the whole world”. From what I can gather he started life sometime in 2009, and was soon offered BBC funding to make a series of films about his sad little life (helped by producers Chris Hayward & Nat Saunders). This act of faith from the BBC doesn’t seem to have cheered him up though, as everything still seems to conspire against him…

I don’t know if Chris & Nat had the idea first and then found the bear, or already had the bear and he inspired the films… I would suggest the latter as the bear they use really does seem to have a character all of his own…

Anyway, I haven’t watched all the films (yet) but I do like Christmas, Dawn of the Ted (warning: Contains Horror) and this one about Work (especially the bear fighting, the cheese sandwich and the photocopier incident…)
