Soon all extant material will have been remade/imagined/rebranded including all our childhood favourites. Coming up in the next couple of months is a filmic version of Paddington.
Whilst we will all always know best and love whichever version we happened to encounter as a child, I was lucky enough to first see the original TV series from the 1970s with its extremely distinctive appearance: Paddington was a stop-motion puppet moving in a three-dimensional space in front of two-dimensional sparse black-and-white line drawing backgrounds, while all the other characters were 2D drawings. Animation was so inventive then.
I am loving this ‘horror’ take on the franchise.
