The Further Adventures of SuperTed, also known as SuperTed, is an American-British animated superhero television series created by Mike Young. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera, in association with S4C and Siriol Animation, for syndication on stations that took part in The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera programming block. It ran in 1989, airing a total of 13 episodes that spanned one season.

As the name suggests, it was a sequel to the original SuperTed animated series which was produced exclusively in Wales for a British-English audience between 1984 to 1986.

SuperTed was originally a discarded teddy bear brought to life with cosmic dust to be a superhero by the passing spotted-alien humanoid named Spotty.
