Background notes: Maja's friend Paul was one of the characters created for the 1975 cartoon series Mitsubachi Māya no Bōken/Die Biene Maja. He was created by the writers Hikaru Sasa and Hitoshi Kanazawa and character designer Susumu Shiraume and appeared for the first time in the fourth episode of the series (German voice by Berno von Cramm).

When the cartoon was adapted into comics in 1976, Paul was also transferred to comics. Later, when the series was transferred to games, Paul was also transferred to games. The first appearance of Paul appears to be in the game Maya The Bee - Garden Adventures for Game Boy Color from 2000.

Only a few figurines with Paul has been observed so far, but most likely he has appeared on other types of merchandise.
