The original '80s Teddy Ruxpin toy played special tapes that contained channels with separate audio tracks holding animation data. This data would signal the tape to make the toy's mouth move. Tinkerers later found the toy to be very hackable.
In the latest video posted Saturday by YouTube channel What's Inside, Dan Markham and young son Lincoln open up the 1980s version Teddy Ruxpin to see how it talks, sings and moves.
The more they remove of the face and body of Teddy, the more evil it appears. Once Teddy is stripped down to his bear...um...bare essentials, it's revealed that his belly is actually just a giant speaker.
Nothing is sadder than watching Teddy be cracked open with a sledgehammer while he's singing. Poor fella.
