Paddington Bear is a 1989–1990 American/British animated television series. It was the second television adaptation of the children's book series, following the 1976–1980 Paddington.[1]

The show was made by Hanna-Barbera in association with Central Independent Television.[2] The character of an American boy named David, Jonathan and Judy Brown's cousin who arrived in London on the same day as Paddington, was added to the stories in this incarnation. The series was part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera in 1989 and lasted 13 episodes.[3]


Paddington Bear lives with the Brown family, and their American cousin, David Russell. The story also concerns the housekeeper Mrs. Bird, the antique shop owner Mr. Gruber, and their nasty next-door neighbor Mr. Curry.[4]
