Story[edit]

On his birthday, Paul receives a teddy bear as a gift from his parents. While Pakkun appears to be a fairly ordinary stuffed toy, he in reality is the keeper of the portal between Earth and an alternate dimension known as the Land of Wonders. Paul and his best friend Nina explore the alternate universe until Nina is kidnapped by the demonic ruler of this dimension, Belt Satan. After making an unsuccessful attempt to save Nina, Paul and Pakkun are forced to return home to Earth, where Paul is confronted by Nina's parents, who blame him for her disappearance and accuse him of murdering her. Paul returns to the Land of Wonders with Pakkun and Nina's dog Doppe in tow, fighting monsters with his powerful yo-yo in order to defeat Belt Satan and save Nina.[2]

The series has been dubbed into several other languages including Italian (as Il fantastico mondo di Paul, 1980), Spanish (as Las aventuras de Paul), Korean, Polish (as Fantastyczny świat Paula), and in English in the Philippines (as Paul in Fantasy Land).[citation needed]
