What’s Got Paddington in a Jam This Time?

Well, Paddington is making his favorite marmalade jam with the help of the Brown’s housekeeper, Mrs. Bird. When they run out of sugar, Paddington heads next door to borrow some from Mr. Curry. The usually grumpy Mr. Curry is even more short-tempered than ever as he prepares for a visit from his great aunt who is a stickler for tidiness. Paddington, feeling sorry for Mr. Curry, volunteers to help him with his chores. Unfortunately for Paddington, his good intentions end up leading to chaos, as one by one each of his jobs starts to have an unexpected outcome!
