The History of Bad Taste Bears
Late one night
in 1994, Peter Underhill, an illustrator
and graphic designer from Coventry, was designing
a range of cutesy bears to be printed onto little
girls pyjamas. To clear his head after becoming 'all
cuted out' he drew his first ever Bad Taste Bear,
"hey Kiddies, here's the chainsaw bear".
He enjoyed drawing it so much that he began putting
a list together and drawing and painting bears in
'interesting' situations as a relase from his twisted
In 1999, Piranha
Studios picked up the range and turned them into collectable
figurines. They began small with just the first six
figurines on sale in the Gadget Shop. Within the first
year, the range increased to twelve figurines and
in the months that followed, due to the increasing
demand, they launched a collectors club to povide
a point of contact for the Bad Taste Bears fans. The
rest as they say, is history.
Bad Taste Bears
are a fabulous range of highly collectible hand painted
poly-resin characters. Each has his or her own characteristics
and vulgarities! The Bad Taste Bears were specially
made to be tongue in cheek and are proving to be a
firm favourite with many collectors. They look so
innocent at first, until you look properly and see
what they're up to. It's the ultimate in shock value.
These bears are disgusting but funny!
After a while
each edition is ‘retired' so get your hands
on them while you still can!!! Bad Taste Bears are
lovable bears in a variety of poses. The figurines
are higly collectable and there's many many different
ones. Start collecting! These bears are outrageous
but very collectable. High quality polyresin figurine.
Bad Taste Bears are lovable bears in a variety of
poses. Love them, hate them, you always need a Bad
Taste Bear around for company!
