Rupert Bear is a children's comic strip character created by the English artist Mary Tourtel and first appearing in the Daily Express newspaper on November 8, 1920. He is a bear cub who lives with his parents in a house in Nutwood, a fictional idyllic English village. He is drawn wearing a red sweater and bright yellow checked trousers, with matching yellow scarf. Originally depicted as a brown bear, his colour soon changed to white to save on printing costs, though he remained brown on the covers of the annuals.
Rupert has had four television series, with the 1991 version by Nelvana the most well-known and appreciated. This series has some references to Christmas and Rupert is friends with Father Christmas. The only official Christmas episode of the series is "Rupert's Christmas Adventure".
