Back in '97 I started mp3'ing some Teddy Ruxpin songs by removing the wires from our second generation Teddy's speaker, connecting them to a mini-plug, and playing him directly into the computer. This had mixed results, as can be heard here.
We bought a new Teddy in 1998, one which used cassettes instead of 'those little cartridges,' and I was able to play these on a standard cassette player plugged into the pc. This is an example using this method.
I liked the Teddy media, the books, music, stories, and television shows, and I started doodling around with his image:
