Paddington Bear - 'Collector's Edition' Combines '70s Show and '90s Show on DVD!
Posted by David Lambert – 9/29/2014

3-disc set from Mill Creek will be out in late November, a month before the new film hits theaters!

Back in 2011, we told you how Mill Creek Entertainment was releasing a couple of DVD sets with the original 1975 stop-motion animated series of Paddington Bear. We also reminding you at the time how the cartoon version of The Adventures of Paddington Bear, which aired in the '90s, had already been on DVD since 2002. Now, with the new Paddington motion picture coming to theaters on Christmas Day 2014, the folks at Mill Creek are putting together a special new release of Paddington Bear - Collector's Edition, with both TV shows together!

Here's the studio description:
Everyone s Favorite Curious and Cuddly Bear! Based off the acclaimed books by Michael Bond, Paddington Bear has captured the imaginations and hearts of young and old around the world for generations. Dressed in his characteristic blue duffle coat and oversized hat, the helpful and cuddlesome Paddington has a gift of putting his paws where he shouldn’t, creating hours of hilariously sticky situations!

A stow-away from darkest Peru, Paddington eventually finds himself alone in Paddington Station, a tag around his neck reading: Please look after this bear. Thank you. When the Brown family takes him home, they get a lot more than they bargained for. This cuddly DVD collection features all 56 episodes and all three-half hour specials of the original stop-motion production along with 13 episodes of the animated series The Adventures of Paddington Bear.

The 3-DVD set will cost just $14.98 SRP, and is available in stores on November you a full month to enjoy these shows with your kids before the new film hits the box office. Here's a look at the package art.

  1. Interesting they put a couple family members of the cover along with Mr. Gruber, but there's no angry Mr. Curry! That's a shame they didn't stick him somewhere on there.
