Swinging Teddi Barra Model Country Bear 1971

A model of my favorite character, Teddi Barra who would descend from the ceiling and sing beautiful songs. I especially liked her in the Christmas show with the cast on her leg. The voice for Teddi is Patsy Stoneman of the Stoneman Family band. For more information on the Country Bears, check out the article on Wikipedia and this article on Stoneman Family.

don't want to hurt your feelings, but your favorite character kind of scares me. i can imagine "her" dropping from the ceiling like a spider and hurting me.... on the other hand, these photos are amazing! really incredible images from behind the scenes!

I've always wondered what happened to all of those animatronic figures from Disneyland CBJ. They have re-used figures from other attractions, but maybe it's a lot harder to work with bear robots!
