    Can anyone remember the 1970s series which was produced by Ivor Wood and voiced by Michael Hordern. So much pleasure watching those. The three are all together again now. Had me thinking, like when Rene Goscinny with Asterix or Roald Dahl or even Peter Sallis with Wallace and Gromit, even though the man who gave us Paddington has gone, but with the sequel to the great 2014 film due soon and stores still supplying the books, Paddington will keep living on for new generations. I think they should defiantly re-show the old 70s Paddington, I swear they last showed it in the 80s/early 90s at best. The Hanna-Barbara version was terrible and while the Cinar vesion tried, it couldn’t hit the mark like FilmFair’s version could.
