In this gentle live-action movie, family dog Aussie becomes jealous of Laney’s attention to her magical teddy bear, Ted, and hides Ted.  When Ted is taken from his hiding place, Aussie is launched on a long adventure to find him and be reunited with Laney and his family. 

 

There is very little content of concern to parents in Aussie & Ted, and all of it is mild. During his adventures Aussie is bullied by bigger dog Rufus, rescues Ted from a burning house, and is chased by a man on horseback who comically falls off. The elderly woman who gave Ted to Laney dies, but this is shown as her simply falling asleep, with another animal later commenting, “she’s at peace now.” There are several references in dialogue to the word “butt,” with Aussie commenting of Rufus, “He’ll chew my butt off!” and the like, and also several references to animal “poop” when Laney’s family moves to a farm. Aussie saves himself from Rufus by audibly passing gas, causing the other dog to retreat in disgust. 

 

With lessons about friendship, loyalty, courage, responsibility and working together, and characters including a little girl, “talking” animals (real animals with speech heard in voice-over) and magical teddy bears, this sweet movie will delight young viewers.  The Parents Television Council is pleased to award Aussie & Ted with the PTC Seal of ApprovalTM. This movie is appropriate for children ages five and up.
