But creator Seth MacFarlane stumbled with his second film A Million Ways to Die in the West so all eyes are on Ted 2 to see if he can bring it all back together. And this red band trailer certainly promises more of the same - from movie references to off colour jokes and the draw of seeing a cute teddy bear curse a lot.
Check it out.
It's a quick snapshot of the film, with some of the jokes relying on having seen previous trailers for the film. Which isn't going to be a problem for fans but there's a definite feel here of the same kind of material being recycled, something which MacFarlane has been guilty of before.
Let's hope there are a few more surprises in the final product.
