Happy Teddy Bear Day everyone! When I think of teddy bears, the first thing I think of after Teddy Roosevelt, is The Teddy Bears Picnic, by Jimmy Kennedy. I don’t know about you, but as much as I love the idea of teddies having a picnic in the woods, the lyrics of the song frightened me a little as a child.


I know I’m not the only one who finds this a tad menacing, especially the first four lines. With that in mind—and because I’m a deeply twisted person—I’d like to share a horror take from Crypt TV on this children’s classic. If murderous bears aren’t your cup of tea, the second video is more traditional and sung by Anne Murray.
