The comical world of the Mr Men was the brainchild of a man named Roger Hargreaves. Back in 1971, Rogers six year-old son asked him, What does a tickle look like? This unusual question got Roger thinking and Mr Tickle, the first ever Mr Men character, came to life. Today, Mr Men and Little Miss are loved all over the world. Kids go wild for Mr Men story books, as well as the classic TV show narrated by British national treasure, Arthur Lowe. The Mr Men phenomenon is unstoppable.
