Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A series of books first appearing in 1958, written by Michael Bond, about the antics of a small anthropomorphic brown bear who lives with an ordinary London family. Paddington is usually seen wearing a blue duffel coat (a somewhat old-fashioned warm coat fastened by toggles) and rather shapeless black hat (though more modern versions sometimes give him a red hat instead, or even reverse the colours for a blue hat and red coat).Paddington books continued to be written throughout the 1960s and 1970s, and spawned a TV series of 5 minute shorts that ran from 1975 to 1986. The unique visual style (Paddington himself is a stop-motion figure, the backgrounds are black-and-white line drawings and the other characters are 2D paper cutouts) and catchy theme tune led to it becoming a well-loved childhood favourite.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })A live-action movie was released in December of 2014, with Nicole Kidman, Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, and Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington. A sequel was released late 2017 with Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson joining the cast.Paddington's creator Michael Bond passed away in June 2017 to universal sorrow from the British public.

Bears Are Bad News

Bears Are Bad News: Averted, yet also played straight in a mild way. Paddington is courteous, completely non-violent, and freaking adorable, yet has quite a knack for getting into all sorts of trouble, whether it's accidentally destroying his neighbor's hammock, letting a marmalade sandwich slip inside a film projector, or trashing the kitchen with one of his sloppy baking attempts.

Accidental Bid: Paddington Bear once went to an auction. He found it a very friendly place. People kept on waving at him, so naturally he waved back...

Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Until Paddington Marches On (1964), where he gets Wellington boots for Christmas. This became established as part of his Iconic Outfit because it let the soft toys stand upright.
