FDC: Mr Men

This cover from Royal Mail seems more lighthearted than usual, but it carries an issue that will inspire fond memories of childhood for many in the United Kingdom: the Mr Men.

UK FDC: Mr Men

Country: United Kingdom
Date of Issue: 20th October 2016 (first day cover)

The first Mr Men were created by author and illustrator Roger Hargreaves in 1971 in a series of books. More characters were added over the years (there are now 85), including the Little Misses. The Mr Men eventually made it to TV, with the stories narrated by the wonderful Arthur Lowe (IMDB).
