Paddington

Trivia: The gentleman in the restaurant who waves as Paddington goes past in a black cab is the Paddington creator Michael Bond.

Trivia: Colin Firth was the first choice for the voice of Paddington, but after recording some of the lines for the film, the producers decided against him, believing he was "too mature" for the role.

Plot hole: While on the boat, Paddington suddenly appears inside the mail sack, thus implying he managed to open the precinct, get inside the sack and find someone who closed the precinct again. An impossible task.

Aunt Lucy: Once, there was once a war in the explorer's country. People in England sent their children by train with labels around their necks, so they could be taken care of by complete strangers in the countryside where it was safe. They will not have forgotten how to treat strangers.
