This Paddington Bear...


This Paddington Bear, what he is doing?

I don't understand. How he is in Darkest Peru and then he is in this Paddington? I do not remember this show. I just remember the eating of the marmalade sandwiches and this bear he is living with a family in a house.

Why he has this blue coat and this black hat but he is not wearing the pantaloon to cover his whatsit? huh? I confused with the ****ing bear.

Paddington Bear is FROM "Deepest Darkest Peru". The story goes (from memory, so it may be a little off) that he was found in Paddington Station, in a trunk labelled "From Deepest Darkest Peru". He gained his name from the station. He was adopted by a local family, and from there got involved in many adventures. I have dim memories that all the other characters were done as cartoons, and only Paddington Bear himself was a stop motion animated figure.
If you ever go to London and go to the lost property office at Paddington station, you'll find a Paddington Bear in a big glass case out the front of the office.
Here's his official website:-

Yeah, he's from Darkest Peru as chrisw75 said. He immigrated to London on a lifeboat (he was a stow-away) when his Aunt Lucy went to a home for retired bears in Lima. Paddington went to London and ended up with the Brown family. Also, the adventures in this show are based on the adventures in the book.

I have the answer, I just can't find it.

This still doesn't explain the lack of pants.

Was Paddington a flasher?

Oh, he was sweet really.

Yogi wears a similar pantless outfit. Thats the way bears are.

Presumably that's why they're called 'bears'.
