Synopsis: A young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kind Brown family, who read the label around his neck ('Please look after this bear. Thank you.') and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.

in the home for retired bears.

But it is not yet time

for you to retire.

You must find a new home. In London.

But... But I don't know anyone there.

What if they don't even like bears?

You know, there was once a war

in the explorer's country.

Thousands of children

were sent away for safety,

left at railway stations

with labels around their necks,

and unknown families took them in

and loved them like their own.

They will not have forgotten

how to treat a stranger.

Now take care, my darling.

Remember your manners.

And keep safe.

OK, I'll just get it now.

I'll throw it down.



Oh, right. Yes.

Manners. Here goes.

Good morning.

Really tipping it down, isn't it?


How do you do?

I'm just looking for a home. And I...


Excuse me...

Does anyone know where I...

where I can find a home?


Passengers are reminded to keep their

belongings with them at all times.

Unattended items will be taken away

and could be destroyed.

Oh, dear.

Oh, hello.

You hungry?

Me, too.

But this is all I've got left.

It's really just for emergency.

Oh, go on then.

Ah, right, I see what I've done.

Come on, you can't

all be having emergencies.

Can you all just go away, please?

I need to look presentable.

- That was so boring.

- I'm sorry you feel like that,

but it was my week to choose and I

enjoyed the Victorian Wool Experience.

At least we spent time together

as a family.

- And we learnt a lot about wool.

- Did you have fun, pumpkin?

It's Judy, and it was fine

until you jumped in the lake.

It's a bathing pond.

It's what you're supposed to do.

- Not naked!

- Well, I forgot my costume.

Jonathan, don't jump like that.

Seven per cent of childhood accidents

start with jumping.

- If I'm gonna be an astronaut...

- You're not "gonna" be.
