Now you shall be told how they got here. Maybe some facts you never knew before.
Where Did They Come From?
We know you believe that some of the characters on this list you thought were created by Roger Hargreaves, but the truth is, they weren't. Roger Hargreaves just got the credit for doing it. There were 11 characters that never got translated into English, but another 13 did. They are listed above. If you don't believe us, look at the publish dates. He died in 1988, but these books were published in 1990. Is this making sense? The Mr. Men and Little Miss I listed above were created by two writers, Viviane Cohen and Evelyne Lallemand, and an illustrator, Colette David. They produced 24 Mr. Men and Little Misses. So if you wondered why Mr. Tickle's hat was green in Mr. Cheerful and Little Miss Somersault, that's why. David colored Mr. Tickle's hat green instead of blue in the French books. This was either a mistake or he wanted us to eventually get the hint he was giving us (the main idea of this article). Surprising right? At least now you know the truth.
