half hour episode teaches kids a great lesson. The shows are very cute and fun.
Paddington is adorable. The animation is very good. I think anyone, especially
young children, should enjoy this series.

Paddington in the two movies, also voices him here. He's a great actor. You
might recognize him from "A Very English Scandal," "Mary Poppins Returns," or
the upcoming James Bond film.
