Ted is famous and most of the people will be aware that a walking talking teddy bear exists in the world but its not normal to come across a walking talking teddy bear in daily life at a public place. It is strange that people are not even excited to see him. Why is that so?

Its not normal to come across a walking talking teddy bear in daily life at a public place

It's not normal in our reality but it is normal in this movie universe

As Wikipedia says*

In 1985, 8-year-old John Bennett is a lonely child living in Norwood, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, who wished for his new Christmas gift—a jumbo teddy bear named Ted—to come to life and become his friend. The wish coincides with a shooting star and comes true; word spread and Ted was briefly a celebrity.

Ted has been around for over 25 years and his existence is well known. Certainly he's unique and one could argue that he should be more of a celebrity but people get blase about such things.

In fact, as noted by @Gallifreyan it's stated that

"Eventually, nobody gives a shit"

  • Understood that he is around from last 25 years but people are so neutral that he walks unnoticed even on the busy streets of Manhattan, Boston etc.

    I think it's actually said by the narrator in the first film: "eventually, nobody gives a shit" (here: youtube.com/watch?v=dbKwJM06fRM) Aug 10, 2017 at 11:33
  • @Gallifreyan That's the perfect answer.
