How To Nom A Punkin

Halloweenie is Wednesday night. Teddy Bear, as always, has something to say about that.

[We’re just not sure what he’s saying -Ed]

Happy Halloween, Tedster!



  1. Elaine From L.A. says:

    I was bored. Now I’m not.

  2. rescue gal says:

    Ummm- Halloween is on Wed. not Tues. I can watch Teddy on ANY day, though.

  3. The Original Jane says:

    After all the Teddy videos I’m convinced that #1 he likes ALL food (why does she bother asking?) and #2 he is getting more jealous at guarding HIS food.

  4. Do this kinds of porcupines really make that much noise naturally? I guess if you’re not prey you can say whatever you want.

    Wonder if Teddy makes these noises because he’s been encouraged/positive reinforcement/bribed for them.

  5. Oh my goodness, Teddy is so possessive! I love how he gives his human a “talking to” when he thinks she is moving in on his pumpkin. So redonk.

  6. Fird Birfle says:

    If Ted weren’t already adorable as a real-life critter, I would say they might oughtta create a cartoon and use Ted’s actual voice as the dialogue for it.

    You GO Teddy!!!

  7. Teddy’s saying what he always says: “Arrrr…yeah…mine….yeah…arrrr…mine mine mine mine MINE!!!! Hey yeah minemineminemineminemine….”

  8. At one point he totally said “Pumpkin!” Well, actually I’m pretty sure he said “cupcake”, but since he’s eating a pumpkin, and it sounds close enough, let’s pretend.

  9. his performance says julliard. not too hard to guess.

  10. Reminds me of a cute fuzzy version of Golem.

  11. someone call the exorcist… :0

  12. he’s a cantankerous cutiepie! i love teddy!

  15. Fird Birfle says:

    PS: also, those are some admirable pointy bits 🙂

  16. Indeed. I noticed the pointy bits as well. I bet he’s as scrappy as he sounds.

  17. OMG he sounds very cute!!

  18. Back up! Imma work on my masterpiece carving! Imma show all of yous how a real jack-o-latern should look.

  19. “My precioussss. . . .”

  20. MINE, all mine!!!

  21. Andi in NC says:

    Too good!! After the video I couldn’t help but click in to the link with him in his santa cap eating a Christmas cookie – it was almost too much to take….

  22. I could watch Teddy all day. Seriously.

  23. I distinctly heard him say “BACK OFF, LADY” or “dis is MAH punkin, NOT YERS”

    or something to that affect.

  24. Me too! I love how he never gives up on trying to eat the stem.

    Am OK here after worst of Hurricane Sandy. Back online with minimal property damage. Kittehs were mildly alarmed when something would hit the house, but otherwise stuck to their schedule of napping, nomming and staring at random spots on the wall.

    A Teddy video starts the day out right after a bleak few days! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  25. YaY! Glad to hear you’re ok! My college roommate is good too! Now we just need Theresa to check in. Any other NY peeps out there?

  26. I just got back from the city on Sunday night! A bit harrowing, wondering about my flight status and all, and coming back to the good ol’ South where the storm has still been blowing around for a couple of days

  27. We’re getting the outside of it today in MI – severe wind gusts and mixed frozen rain/sleet/snow…

  28. I just wish the shot was wide enough to show that he’s talking because she is acting like she’s going to take it away from him. Teddy is adorable, but I hate to think he’s feels like he has to fight for his food just for a video.

  29. patchesmom says:

    I’m pretty sure he was saying “Back off, this is MINE!” followed by “Why didn’t you cut this into covenant bite-sized chunks?!”

  30. With an added “NO!” at 0:52. I love the minemineminemine 🙂

  31. Ceejoe- is the snow sticking where you are? I was horrified to see it on my patio this morning. Made me ALMOST want to call in “sick” and not go into work.
    Saffron- Glad to hear you guys made it okay! And tracylee…glad to see your back 🙂 Now the nomming of ears can once again begin 🙂

  32. I DEFINITELY heard a no. Now I must watch it again to see if I hear Back Off Lady…i mean…you know, to confirm that what you’re heard was in fact true 😉

  33. No, it’s not sticking here, thank heavens! I forget – where in MI are you???

  34. Egads! I swear Teddy is gonna beat down the lady who does these videos one day. Not that Teddy isn’t cute, like really really cute — it’s just that this lady seems so oblivious that he is lashing out and talking at her to keep away. She makes it seem like its all fun and games — I don’t suggest anyone try this at home.

  35. I think he was complaining because it’s hard to get good bites out of – because of the roundness.

  36. Fird Birfle says:

    OH yeh.

    That’s perfectly perfect!!!

  37. I think if you gave Teddy an old boot, an ax handle, or a tree stump, he would eat them… or have a good try. (I hear porkies do chew ax handles etc. for the salt from sweaty hands.)

  38. is Wednesday, the 31st…:-)

  39. He is definitely not sharing at 1:05! 😀

  40. @ceejoe- the land of maize and blue 🙂 It’s not sticking here either…but I still didn’t welcome that sight this morning.

  41. lisaLassie says:

    They are quite vocal.

  42. Eek! I try to avoid that town at all costs! 🙂

  43. haha!

  44. villyjean says:

    WHAT?! I didn’t even SEE that! *scampers off to watch*

  45. She’s his keeper at the zoo… I’m pretty sure she can read his behavior better than we can considering she’s with him every day. No worries.

  46. Did anyone else think he sounded like a Wicket?

  47. I think he sounds like “Cousin It” on the Adams Family.

  48. Sounds like they had to bleep something out at about 1:59!

  49. Am I the only one who thinks teddy is terrifying? I also hate ferrets. COL is going to run me out of town with pitchforks for that.

  50. He is adorable and has alot to say!
