Er, yes, it did.
Vintage footage of Teddy Anteater at Newcastle University back in 1981. The compere is Simon Donald, one half of the Donald VIZ COMIC brothers, trying to flog one of those very early editions of VIZ COMIC. Forget those early X-Factor auditionees, Teddy was the original, long before Cowell ever dreamt of being an entrepreneur.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC3sjLicfgE
Teddy was announced as Wavis O'Shave's dad , Wavis being the surreal comic from THE TUBE and elsewhere, and Teddy deffo wasn't his dad!
Funny thing is, its true that the Uni tried to bring Teddy back the following year.
