In 1975 Paddington first appeared on the television, made by FilmFair in the UK. The TV series used a technique of combining a three-dimensional Paddington puppet with two-dimensional backgrounds and other characters. Both the puppet and the technique were designed by Ivor Wood.

56 episodes were made in total, along with 3 half-hour specials, from 1975 to 1984.
