Beary Bizarre:
The colored Teddy Bears of The Avengers

Appendix A to the "Avengers" movie review


In a beautiful but bare room, nine giant Teddy Bears hold a conspirative meeting. Two additional bears stand guard. The black bear in the middle soon removes his head, revealing him to be Sir August de Wynter. The bears contain the head scientists of the Prospero Project. When Sir August asks whether anybody would like to leave, two raise their hand and they are promptly murdered.

Steed and Mrs. Peel arrive soon after the meeting ends. They pursue the guard bears, one of which (red) turns out to be de Wynter's henchman Bailey, the other one (black) being a clone of Emma Peel. Steed fights Sir August's henchmen in a back alley; Mrs. Peel fights her clone on a rooftop.

Much later, Steed and Mrs. Peel come upon the remaining -- dead -- bears, as they search for Sir August de Wynter.
